Leighton should resign over gas pump issue

Even young children shopping with their parents in a grocery store are taught that you don’t take anything unless you plan on paying for the item. If you or I decided we needed gas for our vehicle and pulled up to the city of Wilkes-Barre’s gas pump and took gas, we would be arrested on the spot. If you don’t think so, try it. Call me from the police station and let me know when you are being processed.

Is the mayor of Wilkes-Barre above the basic laws of society? No! And local and state law enforcement, even though they know this to be true, are lying low. Why?

Since this isn’t the first time the mayor of our city has been found to be “taking” – as, in this case, of not paying for something that isn’t free – he isn’t worthy of serving us any longer. The mayor of our city is paid close to $80,000 a year, in addition to operating a real estate company. And the man isn’t paying for gas?

If we are to maintain a civilized and just society, our elected officials need to be beyond reproach in their character.
