Committed to goodness

My experience of Bruce Conklin has been that of a man committed to goodness. He is a man dedicated to improving the lives of all without restrictions based on ideology or creed.

The tenor of your editorials has been extremely disturbing. This is a man who has earned the respect and admiration of this community through years of dedicated service and high ideals put into action. I find that the general attitude of arrogant disdain seems to be the tool used by those on the right to belittle their opponents, to deem them somehow less than worthy, both locally and at the national level. While the left invites discussion and debate, the right seeks to avoid open and candid discussion of issues in favor of smear and diversion.

I invite Mr. Ackerman to bring Mr. Conklin into his office and engage in a direct and comprehensive interview, rather than publish his perceptions (developed in his short time as a resident of Nevada County) in such a sarcastic and rhetorical manner during a hotly contested supervisorial contest.
