Dear Editor, I hope I am not the only who was shaking my head after reading Bob Lewis' response to Ray Rothrock's ad last week, where Bob confirmed he had also resigned from a four-year mayor's term in Ohio, after only serving one-year.

To suggest that Bob Lewis is a "quitter" and compare his actions to those of Ray Rothrock is absolutly ridiculous. Anyone reading Bob's reply would understand that Bob "moved on" as the result of a promotion and job transfer. That was clearly the right thing to do for his career and his family. On the other hand, Ray stomped out of a council meeting and quit, just because he did not get his way. This temper tantrum is characteristic of a small child, and not a grown man who the citizens of our town elected to office. After quitting, one has to wonder why he is spending money to make ridiculous personal attacks against a mayor that has moved the town of Carolina Beach forward on many fronts, such as a REAL Boardwalk makeover (not just painted benches and flower boxes), initiated major sewer and water improvements, avoided a tax increase by cutting wasteful spending, stopped the financial bleeding of the town owned Hotel properties, and even reversed the road diet, which was a Dan Wilcox folly. How many of you remember that Dan refused to vote to reverse the road diet, even after the citizens and business owners of Carolina Beach demanded it?

It is time that we give our current mayor and council some credit for the great job they have done during the past 2 years!
