I am responding to councilman Sheehan’s comments regarding the integrity of councilman Ken Jones [“Resident files ethics complaint against candidate,” Scarsdale Inquirer, June 21]. Councilman Jones is one of the most ethical people I know and has more integrity in his pinky than that of the rest of the council combined. Councilman Jones is honest, always direct and would be the first to recuse himself from a matter if he thought there was a conflict. It seems the ugliness of our federal politics is trickling down to a local level where those we have elected seem to not realize that words really do matter as do honesty and integrity. I think Councilman Jones is due a public apology. I personally am saddened by Mr. Sheehan’s lack of respect but certainly not surprised.
