Nicklin’ and diming

Peter Nicklin’s recent letter to the editor insinuated that a local citizen donated “thousands of dollars, or was it tens of thousands of dollars, to defeat the straight shot in the last election.”

If Peter had taken the time to review the public record he would have found that the Citizens for a Small Town Entrance received contributions from 137 people and that no household (much less individual) contributed over $1,000.
