Poor sports at BriarPatch

Attention all BriarPatch members who don’t like the election results: Please learn to accept change. If you can’t, then vote with your feet by requesting a membership refund and going somewhere else to shop, so the rest of us can be spared your worldview of suspicion and negativity.

Attention headline-writers at The Union: Please don’t advance the possibility of a flawed BriarPatch election when, as the article clearly states, there is no evidence for it.

People who question the integrity of outgoing board member Eddy Sitzer and her husband, newly elected board member Lew Sitzer, prove only that they do not know these fine people and would rather hurl accusations than gracefully accept change.

I’ve had the privilege of working with Lew, the executive director of NCTV (our community TV station) on that group’s board for two years. Despite his very low pay for the part-time job, Lew has devoted thousands of volunteer hours to NCTV because he wants to serve others. He is a retired Nevada Union teacher and Peace Corps member. Edy has also devoted many volunteer hours to both NCTV and BriarPatch. This couple’s integrity and commitment to community is indisputable.

It’s over, BriarPatch complainers. Give it up already.
