Sandusky has bigger problems than Glovinsky

The “Stinky Deal” referred to by Matt Westerhold in his column (Between the Lines, May 11) could have been completely avoided if Ross Glovinsky hadn’t been wrongfully terminated by former Sandusky City Manager Nicole Ard.

While Mr. Westerhold wonders how $25,000 can be considered a reasonable settlement for “losing a $12 an hour part-time, probationary job, anyone who’s had any experience with our legal system can tell you the bulk of that money will go toward paying his attorney’s fees.

What I find most disturbing about Mr. Westerhold’s editorial, though, is his failure to see the larger picture.

I have seen large swaths of Sandusky, the town in which I was raised, blighted by crack cocaine and heroin use. In regard to being cited for reckless operation in 2011, young Mr. Glovinsky admitted his mistake and would like to follow in his father’s footsteps and serve the community.

While Mr. Westerhold frets over “affirmative action, lives continue to be lost to crime and addiction.

In this current state of crisis I’m more than willing to give the benefit of the doubt to Mr. Glovinsky.
