Judgmental in Cheswick

Vickie Roolf, in her first year on Cheswick Borough Council, has been blatantly rude, inconsiderate and openly judgmental of both current and past council members.

In her mind, she and Councilman Jonathan Skedel are the self-proclaimed, chest-thumping saviors of the borough.

In her Oct. 18 letter, “Cheswick problems II,” Roolf cited the Bible, saying “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” She, however, is a public hypocrite. This is the same person who spent about an hour at the beginning of the May council meeting inappropriately criticizing decisions of previous councils.

Her letter is hypocritical too, because it was judgmental.

It's sadly ironic that these two are promoting their “Judge not” campaign now that Roolf has become the puppet president of council.

Everyone should be careful of whom they listen to. Remember, anyone can quote Scripture, but that doesn't mean they live by it.
