To the Editor:
It's a sad day when pettiness denies a committed citizen an appointment to a Lower Macungie Township volunteer service committee.
Ron Beitler has excellent leadership skills and would be a fine addition to any township committee. It seems the big egos of the majority of the Lower Macungie Township Board of Commissioners are easily pricked. They exhibit disdain for anyone who disagrees with their actions. Actions that have been consistently questionable.
