The cost of destroying evidence? Nothing for councilman. Cincinnati taxpayers lose

From his perch on Cincinnati City Council, Wendell Young has acted above the law and regularly thumbed his nose at the very taxpayers who pay his salary.

This has to stop.

Young is no longer fit to serve in public office after his attorney this week admitted that the Democrat destroyed evidence in an open meetings court case. Young blatantly destroyed the public's trust, and the only way he can truly be held accountable is to be removed from office.

But can true accountability be achieved?

Short of Young himself deciding to resign, I see no clearcut way to get him out of office before he's term-limited in December 2021. There is no recall provision in the city's charter.

1. It would be better for Cincinnati and the city council if Young stepped down.

He's a retired Police officer and gets a good retirement there, one would think.
Young has little to offer in way of improving the city; others can do much better.
He misses many committee meetings, which are an inherent part of the process of getting anything done..
His health is compromised; he had a heart problem during last year's election season and for all practical purposes didn't participate. His name recognition, Democratic endorsement and wife's efforts pulled it off for him.

Some might think he's just collecting an easy paycheck.
