I have tried to keep up with your postings and comments as much as possible on lovelandtruth.com. I have to say, that in the 30 years that I have lived in Loveland, that I have not seen the level of hatefulness that I am seeing now involving our city government. Not everyone understands Mark Fitzgeralds personality, but in all, I felt that he was doing a good job. He tells it like it is, and doesn't pull any punches, which upsets todays liberal thinkers. The PAC likes to bring up his job in North College Hill. Councilwoman Novak is a commercial artist who has done a lot of work around that city. She is also related to an attorney who seems to like to go after government entities, and make their lives miserable. In short, this new PAC, which is comprised of a lot of people who do not live in our city, is just trying to see how big of a nuisance that they can be. I am sure that some of our candidates have made some promises to the PAC which cannot be filled unless they gain a majority on council. I also find it amusing that one of the candidates committee report shows the bulk of his funding coming from sources in California. You did an excellent job on Loveland City Council. Your family has owned a business in Loveland for more years than I know. Your Dad was a Loveland Police officer. Your heart is truly in this city. I intend to vote for Pam Gross, Steve Zamagias, Ted Bateman and Mr. Kuhn for council. I am urging my neighbors in the Heights to do the same. Unless you can give me a compelling reason otherwise, I feel like these persons are the best choices for the job. In closing, thank you for all that you do for this city. Respectfully, Chris Ostendorf
