Letter to the Editor:
There are several of us involved in this activity; none of us are fond of anonymous letter-writers. However, because of the circumstance of the case, anonymity is an absolute necessity.
You or somebody on your staff mus do a background check on city council candidate Jacob Oppelt. His rap sheet just became available to us and to say the least, it’s frightening to think a person like this might be elected to a decision-making position in our city.
In short, this man has a checkered legal past, including not one, but TWO hit–and-run incidents and TWO episodes when he lied to the police.
He was found guilty several times of misdemeanors, and in at least one instance, October 2008, he was jailed briefly and paid a $300 fine for “Making A False Statement To A Public Official.”
Less than 5 years ago he was charged with Theft 3 and pleaded Not Guilty.
We feel this information should come out as soon as possible.
Please, Mr. Wilson, don’t let the anonymity of this letter deter you from checking out Mr. Oppelt’s past behavior. this is legitimate information that surely, you, as a reporter can track down and verify.
We call ourselves…
The Committee To Keep Corruption Off P. A. City Council.
