Army veteran outraged by planned party for 'all the immigrants coming in from Mexico who take most people’s jobs in Willard'

EDITOR’S NOTE: The following letter to the editor was submitted by Christopher C Shepherd of Willard.

A little about me. I live in Willard. I am 34 years old and served in U.S. Army five years with one tour in Iraq in 2005. I am in outrage with other people in Willard about this Issue at hand. And you can use my name in anything needed on this subject as long as its correct on what I said.

Willard is throwing a party for all the immigrants coming in from Mexico etc. who take most people’s jobs in Willard. They don’t pay city taxes nor do they help with anything in community and half of them are hear illegally. I am not against them in any shape or form. I am not raciest. I just believe in what’s right for everyone. The city has never done anything for people here year round paying the taxes. They haven’t done nothing for veterans who are here working paying city taxes and put their life on the line.

Willard said it can’t afford to keep Willard pool open for people in the community, but they can afford to have a party for people who don’t pay our taxes nor do anything for our community. I have attached what our city council has said. And it’s a lie if you ask around in Willard. E

veryone I have talked to is in rage and unhappy. I plan on contacting Ohio immigration so they get ones here illegally. I also plan on contacting our Ohio governor about this issue and anyone else will help me against this spit in the face from our city council.
