Inexcusable |


I am saddened and disgusted that The Union has chosen to mount a smear campaign against Bruce Conklin. I had questions about The Union’s bias when Jeff Ackerman went after Michael Moore’s movie, but was still hopeful that I hadn’t moved to a repressive right-wing community when I relocated from the Bay Area.

For a well-read local newspaper to attack a local candidate is unexcusable, and I will have to reconsider my decision to continue taking this paper.

This has been a sad campaign year for America. I would hope that people would look beyond petty powermongering and vote for what is right for this country and for this county, but apparently we are kept hostage by those who will lie to obtain their goal. I am ashamed of The Union newspaper.
