Lima has been my hometown my entire life. I have lived, raised a family, worked, and yes paid taxes here for the past 60 years. I have agreed and disagreed with elected officials over the years, but I always knew they were my neighbors.
Ms. Hardesty who is currently running for mayor of Lima has not paid taxes in Lima or Ohio for decades. Why would she want to be mayor of a city that she has not lived in for the past 20 years? Why would Lima residents want to vote for a person who hasn’t been a member of our community?
This does not make sense. I cannot believe the best of Lima in an outsider who has swooped in for a power grab. Whoever wins the mayoral race, I certainly hope they are at least one of our neighbors.
