On Oct. 31, Eric Krieg described Hammond and other communities as "failed North Lake County cities."
Failed cities? My office is next door to a church where volunteers help people in need.
Failed cities? This "failed city" prevented extensive damage during the flood.
Failed city? Most of Krieg's citizens once lived in one of these failed cities, and in this failed city integrity is a trait of character, not an advertisement in a political campaign.
Krieg can exercise that trait of character by withdrawing his failed remarks.
