This letter was prompted by the recent MDJ article regarding Marietta Councilman Philip Goldstein having to pay the city/people of Marietta $50,000 for attorneys’ fees after he lost his last legal appeal for the frivolous lawsuit he brought against the City of Marietta for refusing to allow him to build a massive/intrusive high-rise “Goldstein Monumental” office building on our small/quaint and beautiful historical town square.

It’s a shame, Councilman Goldstein, with his vast Marietta property assets, coupled with his adroit business and legal skills, could be a great asset and visionary leader for our beautiful city.

Councilman Goldstein, the people of Marietta need your commitment, drive, knowledge and leadership skills in helping us to revitalize/redevelop the dilapidated slum rental housing and atrociously poor living conditions in our inner-city neighborhoods.

As our neglected, destroyed and abused inner city neighborhoods, which surround our beautiful town square, are rebuilt and given a fresh/new lease on life and civic pride through a substantial revitalization program, it stands to reason your investment in our beautiful Marietta historical town square should be richly rewarded with substantial long term capital gains on your real estate investments.

Now that sounds like a win-win situation to me.

If Gold$tein were truly interested in improving Marietta, he'd move...taking his "adroit business and legal skills" with him.

Yep and if you look at the square most of the buildings are dilapidated rentals owned by Goldstein.

He only cares about the almighty dollar and nothing else.
