Board, not Izzy, voted to remove Leipzig from panel

A recent article in your paper states that Marguerite Leipzig was removed from the sanitary advisory commission because of a unilateral decision by Izzy Martin. This is untrue. She does not have that power. It was a unanimous decision by the BOS, with one abstention. The board then appointed unanimously Melody Wilson, who serves on the Lake Wildwood BOD and who is highly qualified for this position. These facts were not included in your article – one wonders why.

Marguerite has served her community well, there’s no argument about that. She’s been on the sanitation board for 10 years. There’s been a lot of problems, and it is time for change. She should realize that she does not have a lifetime appointment and accept the decision of the BOS gracefully and not turn her disappointment into a political football.
