Reader: The Lakewood Library Director is Power Hungry

I propose that you write a news story pointing out the undesirable conflict of interest of the director of the Lakewood Public Library doing a televised interview of each candidate for mayor of Lakewood, and also presiding over a debate of these three mayoral candidates. The director of the library is a public official who directs a major, taxpayer funded instittution. As such, he is a legitimate target for criticism by any Lakewood mayoral candidates for any deficiencies in his performance. Local newspapers have published criticism of the director in the past few months, including The Plain Dealer (criticism by library employees), Lakewood Sun Post (flooding, closing computer center for seven months, etc.), the Free Times, and the Scene (wasting taxpayers money regarding the new library construction, etc.).
