PORT CLINTON, OH (Toledo News Now) -

City council members in Port Clinton spoke out Tuesday for the first time since they received nasty letters last week.

The council members said the letters they received have shaken their sense of security.

All five members received a letter last week, which contained obscenities, sexual content, and political rants, according to Port Clinton police.

The letters were immediately turned over to police, who are investigating the situation and trying to determine who sent them.

"When you get a letter like that, my concern about it is you don't know what was in this person's mind," said Council President Linda Hartlaub. "So if they're not going to get their desired result, what could happen next? Maybe nothing, maybe it's just a one-time thing. But you don't know."

Police Chief Robert Hickman will continue to be present at council meetings, but council members are still concerned.

"I have a family to look out for," said Councilman Mike Snider. "Again, you don't want to go to that extreme, but you just never know in today's society what could come of this."

Council members said the letter didn't express anger over any particular issue or council decision, so no one knows who sent them or why.

Only one of the letters was opened because police wanted to preserve the others for fingerprints.
