Statement by John Broden on Trustee Michalski charges


Statement of John E. Broden, Chair, St. Joseph County Democratic Party

"I received word today that Olive Township Trustee, John Michalski, was indicted on
three felony counts following a grand jury investigation. It is clear from the indictment
that these alleged crimes stem from Mr. Michalski's use of Olive Township tax dollars
for personal gain. While I certainly respect Mr. Michalski's right to profess his innocence
and contest the criminal charges, I find the allegations so troubling that I am calling
upon Mr. Michalski to resign his position of Olive Township Trustee immediately.

The mere allegation that Mr. Michalski used Olive Township tax dollars for personal
gain is so serious a breach of the public trust that I can see no way that he can carry on
his duties as Olive Township Trustee."
