Focus on the issues

In response to Town Mother Shelle de Beque’s letter of July 2, I have lived in Carbondale for 13 years. My husband and I have a business in Carbondale. I am employed in Carbondale. I love my town and its future means everything to me. Your letter seems to say that because of my employment, I have no right to voice my opinion.

I have no financial stake in the outcome of the CRMP. Since you know me, a simple phone call to check this out would have been more neighborly. You have insulted me by insinuating that my opinion doesn’t count. How dare you!

My letter was positive. You need to stop the personal attacks and focus on the issues. You did not even respond to the issues that I brought up.
