This is to Jim Schmidt whose letter to the editor I read in the paper.
Congratulations, Daily Globe, for uncovering a good story. I don't think that the articles about Gary Spaeth being bankrupt are supposed to have been taken as degrading. They are informative. It's good to know this about our auditor/treasurer. Does this make him a bad auditor/treasurer? No. Did the article say he does a bad job at what he does? No. They weren't implying anything. It simply is informing everyone of a fact. Anyone could have found this out in other ways.
Obviously some people had or the Globe wouldn't have been leaked the story.
Did you notice that the reporter went straight to Gary Spaeth? They went to him. That's commendable. They wanted to find out the truth.
This isn't some tabloid paper where the stories are gossip and twisted around. This really did happen. Mr. Spaeth really did file for bankruptcy. Get over it. It's just an informative article. Granted, this is about his personal life, but this aspect of it affects getting voted into his job. When the president is elected, they look deep into his personal life. This is how people judge and get their opinions of someone. I am sure people have been reading the articles wondering how our auditor/treasurer can handle the county finances when he can't handle his own.
Working in a bank, I would be terminated from my job if I filed for bankruptcy. Why? Because if I can't handle my own finances, I shouldn't be handling those of others. It's the harsh truth of reality.
