I have known Luzerne County Community College President Thomas P. Leary for more than 20 years, and he has always been an outstanding individual and public servant.
College presidents or leaders in the corporate world are not saints, just normal people with the needs and wants like the rest of us.
President Leary is a man of integrity and honesty and will want to be held accountable for his actions. It seems some people wanted to make a mountain out of a molehill.

To the residents of Wilkes-Barre Township, thank you all who came out to vote Tuesday. Also, a big thank-you to my family and friends, new and old, who supported me.
Many people in this country and currently in other countries fight and die for this privilege, which should not be taken for granted. Watching people bring their children to teach them the democratic process was especially refreshing to see.
Finally, I’d like to congratulate my opponents for a good race. I wish them luck in their terms, fighting for the best interests of all the residents in Wilkes-Barre Township.
I am 14. I am sending this email in regard to The Times Leader’s recent article about 50 years of the Genetti Hotel (“Genetti’s Golden,” Nov. 3).
I am glad that family hotel is in business today, because I like to go there for Easter and Mother’s Day for the banquets. I think they have a wonderful and fine selection of food there to offer everybody. Also, I think that at least everybody in the area has gone to Genetti’s at least once in their life for an occasion.
I would also like to point out that I am glad to see Genetti’s running well today; what I mean by that is that in the story it mentions that the building has had a fire and has been flooded by Hurricane Agnes in 1972. I’m glad that he decided not to accept a buyout because of the flooding but decided to stay and rebuild.
Thank you to those who supported my re-election bid to Luzerne County Council. Thank you to all who fulfilled their right and responsibility to vote, whether or not they voted for me.
We should all wish only the best to those who are re-elected and newly elected.
The road ahead will be filled with tough decisions. The county debt service for next year is $27 million. God bless all the 2014 council members and our county manager as they make every effort to steer the ship of county government to the shores of fiscal stability.
