Letter sent to Temple Terrace homes says Muslim candidate unfit for office
by Paul Guzzo
City Council candidate Wael Odeh has lived more than three decades in this town of 25,000 straddling the Hillsborough River.
He is a husband, father of four and grandfather of three. As a civil engineer, he has designed bridges and roads throughout the United States.
Odeh is also a Muslim, born in Palestinian territory, and someone believes that's enough to disqualify him from election to the City Council.
An anonymous letter has been mailed to a number of addresses in Temple Terrace questioning whether City Hall is safe with a Muslim working there and whether Odeh has ties to terrorism.
