A recent Scene article that raised questions about how the city of Fairview Park handled the departure of a major taxpaying business and the arrival of a non-profit, non-tax paying private school has struck a nerve with Mayor Eileen Patton, who went on the political offensive this week.

The original report, "Stress Test," focused on the Qadax building and contained harsh words from three Fairview Park residents. For example: "From my standpoint, if you look at something like this and you cannot think of a good reason why it was done, what kind of reason does that give you?" says Kreps. "It leaves either incompetence, or worse. You don't want either of these in your city. It disturbs me."

Mayor Patton defended herself Monday.
