This is an open letter to Michael Lenz.
Michael Lenz while in his campaign for the Council of the City of Hoboken, in the Fourth Ward, in November of 2001, brazenly filed a complaint against Joanne Turso, who at the time had been working for the campaign of Christopher Campos, who was eventually elected to the Council by an overwhelming vote over Mr. Lenz and the other candidate in the field, stating that Joanne Turso had committed some type of fraud, while attempting to assist voters in their constitutional right to vote by absentee. Mr. Lenz continued his vendetta against Joanne Turso on election day, all because she had the audacity to speak against his candidacy. It is my understanding that after all investigations were undertaken, there was no finding of guilt against Joanne Turso.
I write this letter because I happen to know Joanne Turso and know she would not do anything that was of an illegal nature and for Mr. Lenz to make such an accusation while attempting to blacken the good name of this woman and then just fade into the darkness, is a travesty of justice. If the truth be known Mr. Lenz should be the one being investigated, because his only reason for instituting this complaint against Joanne Turso, is that he was obviously disappointed with the fact that Joanne's husband, who happens to be a commissioner with Hoboken Parking Authority, would not support him for a position with the authority. I know there is no legal way one can stop these types of frivolous complaints being filed, but it does seem unfair that a person can file a complaint such as this, well knowing there is no truth to it and then suddenly slip into the darkness and the person who the complaint was made against, has to live with the doubt left in the minds of the public at large, created by the filing of such a complaint.
A friend of Joanne Turso,
