Letter: Resident wants graffiti erased off bridge on West Streetsboro Road

Published:

Although not totally surprised, I am once again appalled that our city has been desecrated by immature vandals. The recent graffiti on the railroad bridge over West Streetsboro Road has been perpetrated by a few of our darling little Hudson High "Seniors 2014."

They are obviously not grateful to a community which has provided them a fine education and have now shown complete lack of respect for their schooling and for our residents with their in-your-face "artwork." Am I the only one who believes this eyesore should be immediately eradicated?

While I realize the bridge is the property of the railroad, I also know that they will do nothing to paint over this disgrace. To substantiate this, just look at the second adjacent bridge heading west on Route 303 which was vandalized last year in tribute to the 2013 Hudson Senior Class. The ungrateful seniors who created this recent graffiti will most likely never confess their deed and their enabling parents will undoubtedly never be held financially responsible. Herein lies the conundrum. Who will take charge and paint over this orange mess which now adds an inner-city, urban looking blight to the central downtown area in our upscale community?

I have been a proud resident of Hudson for over 25 years and I take pride in the appearance of our charming little town. I firmly believe our local government should take action and order our tax-paid city workers to correct this situation and do whatever possible to prevent a recurrence. How about sending Hudson High School an invoice for labor and materials?

David Kindt, Hudson
