Re: “UP mayor owes $71,902 in back taxes” (TNT, 7-9).

If you examine the information given in the article it is very clear that Ken Grassi has chosen to suffer personally rather than reduce his staff through layoffs. This may appear to some to be an unwise business decision. However much can be said for treating employees as valuable and doing what it takes to retain them.

Regardless of your opinion of him as a businessman, his willingness to sacrifice personally for the good of others certainly says a great deal about him as a human being.
