Recently, Borough Council, Borough of Boyertown, released a news release stating,“From the borough thanking the residents”.
Regardless, their heading should have read “Thanking the residents for allowing us to rob you blind!”
I am Clayton M.“Clay” Leister, and I NEVER miss a Boyertown Borough Meeting.
Their elected officials are robbing Boyertown Borough residents, and their elected officials are getting their way to their own personal gain and benefit; and, in the end, it will COST residents more than they can afford to pay in taxes.
For example, Boyertown Borough Council voted to accept a FEE in lieu of parking within our business district. That is to say that if you own a building that you desire to convert to more apartments, you can do so by simply paying a fee of $2,000 per required parking space to the Borough; however, the Borough of Boyertown doesn’t have the land or parking spaces to provide; therefore, a huge problem is being created and NOT resolved.
Now, let’s consider their proposed 2011 budget which on the surface seems reasonable; however, they have shifted the major debt obligation over onto the Boyertown Water Authority, without Water Authority approval, I might add; that will inevitably force a water rate increase within the near future-but who will be the wiser!
I have attended all Boyertown Borough Meetings for over thirty years; however, I couldn’t even get acceptance upon a committee to suck-up the dirt within the Borough regardless of my God Given Concerns for our community.
Obviously, I am feared because of my ingrained honesty for life without compromise for evil deeds.
Now however, I reached a point where my time is ending given the lack of support from the community; and, unfortunately, I have considered giving up to the ill deeds of our so-called leaders. I simply cannot continue without community support because I can no longer “live” knowing how the community is being defrauded.
There was a time in life that sustained me with hope; however, given your disinterest and lack of concern; I, Clayton M.“Clay” Leister, have decided upon personal survival somewhere else. I consider myself an American Patriot, and for that there is NO compromise.
Good Luck, and my Prayers remain for you.
Clayton M.“Clay” Leister
P.S. My Great Grandfather, a Member of the Philadelphia Brigade died at Gettysburg while another member of my family, Timothy Matlack, penned the Declaration of Independence; therefore, FREEDOM should have been my name.
