Keep Obici House discussions open

To the editor:

What in the world is going on with the City Council and their thinking concerning the Obici House?

I have not seen any explanation as to why several prospective buyers who are willing to restore the house have been ignored, with no explanation whatsoever.

I was brought up to believe that city business was to be conducted at council meetings, not behind closed doors, with no explanation given on the decision.

Please give us the whole story as to why City Council wants to tear down the home.

Mr. Obici was without a doubt the man who put Suffolk on the map. His home should be honored and respected. Much of what he contributed to Suffolk has been demolished or renamed.

I personally would like this prospective home sale to be thoroughly discussed at several council meetings.

The people of Suffolk deserve and explanation.
