I have lived in this county all my life and never before have I been so deeply disappointed. Watching the hatred, the anger and the mudslinging toward some of our local candidates, even by professional people who were hired to protect us, has left me profoundly concerned.
Seeing the local paper seeming to relish in destroying people on its front pages concerns me further. I would like to challenge the U-B to be a front runner in setting a tone of unity, of building one another up vs. tearing down, of standing by one another and being respectful to all.
Maybe I am an idealist but I believe we can start today by supporting our local elected officials by ending the spreading of lies and stopping the mudslinging.
I believe we can build a community that is outside the norm.
