Kelty attacked Richard for not offering more vocal support for the Fort Wayne Community Schools’ $500 million bond issue, which was later killed through remonstrance. Kelty said the mayor should have been out front but only sent a letter of support.
“It’s time for real leadership,” Kelty said.
Of course, the issue Kelty chose is somewhat perplexing – he didn’t sign either petition for the bond issue and has never publicly said which side he supported.
Surely I'm not the only person that sees the irony in our "smaller government" candidate not speaking out against what was going to be a massive and unnecessary tax increase levied by FWCS. Why is that by the way? Oh yea, Kelty wants to reduce public spending unless it could benefit him personally.
So my advice would be to stop the hypocritical attacks against a popular sitting mayor. No charge...
