Defends votes


To the Editor:

I found the Sept. 26 Grosse Pointe News opinion article "71% of voters OK needed school bond" offensive. I did not vote against the school bond issue, but I will defend the right of the people who did vote "nay."

The former USSR won most of their issues by votes of 99 to 100 percent, but they are not someone I wish to emulate. The News should be thankful that the bond issue was passed by nearly 75 percent of the voters; instead, you resort to name-calling and downright insults.

The opinion piece reference to 2,070 "Scrooges" and "narrow-minded, short-sighted voters" is unwarranted.

As long as we live in a free nation, voters should be allowed to voice their opinion without fear and intimidation.

I believe the News owes the people of Grosse Pointe an apology.
