Property maintenance code unneccessary law

February 1, 2014
The Marietta Times

Marietta councilman Roger Kalter submitted a "Special Opinion Piece" to The Anchor (Nov. 20, 2013) applauding council for unanimously passing the 2012 update to the International Property Maintenance Code, along with an enforcement official to give it "teeth," as the headline put it. So far, so good. The piece began objectively, as expected of any competent reporter, but it ended by referring to those challenging such legislation as the "lunatic fringe." Earlier, councilman Kalter denigrated his opposition, having referred to them in committee as "tin foil hat wearers." So much for tolerance of differing viewpoints. Such descriptions do not foster the free exchange of ideas and opinions.
