Voting without threats

In regards to [a letter writer, Sept. 20], “Privacy issue misguided,” I believe that many people would vote in favor of the fire assessment but are not in favor of the annual adjustments that could increase every year, up to 3 percent per year, without a proposed limit on the number of years that these increases could continue. I also feel that if there were to be an increase, it should be voted on by the people, not by the board of directors.

As for your personal idea, [letter writer], about not voting the way you want and to put up a “Do Not Respond” list, maybe you have forgotten that American citizens have a right to vote the way they wish without being threatened by people like you.
