Englewood Mayor Michael Wildes says his fellow Democrat, Assemblyman Gordon Johnson, should resign from the Englewood Council following revelations that he gave $1,850 to Lyndon LaRouche's PAC.
"I have known two Gordon Johnsons in politics. One is avuncular and knows what the politically correct thing to say is. The other is divisive, mean-spirited and profoundly lacks common sense, " said Wildes.
I believe the latter Gordon Johnson repeatedly donated to Lyndon LaRouche PAC. It was that Gordon Johnson who solicited contributions from city employees on government property for a “Clean Election.” And I believe it was that same Gordon Johnson who saw nothing wrong in what he had done," Wildes said. "This is the Gordon Johnson that a diverse city like Englewood cannot afford. It is easy to tear people apart. Keeping people united in purpose and in understanding is not nearly as easy a task."
