Dear Judge Gleb:

Today (June 26) I received your letter, and I wanted to thank you for all that you have done. I read the article written in the Times Leader newspaper online, regarding the finalization of my case, and the rather unflattering comments below by readers who likely didn’t get the full story from that news article. So with all due respect, I have asked all three city newspapers to kindly publish this letter at their earliest convenience, in the hope that the readers may gain a clearer understanding of what happened during my Right to Know appeal in your courtroom.

I brought forth an action for reconsideration because I truly believe that some further explanation was given with regard to the check and spreadsheet provided by the city. As fate would have it, there was more to this, and it was provided to another via an open records request. Yet I wasn’t aware of it until the story of my case was published following your initial court order of June 10, 2014. Mr. Lynott of the Times Leader made me aware of a city letter outlining what transpired, please see enclosed.

The point of this letter is merely to express my gratitude for how my case was handled. It’s no secret that many citizens have lost faith in our local governments due to overcasting shadows of our past; I left your courtroom feeling that I was heard, and you truly understood my concerns. You have restored my faith in the Luzerne County Court System. Thank you!

Frank R. Sorick, president, Wilkes-Barre City Taxpayers Association
