Town manager was out of line
by Lisa Munro
Summerfield

Had I not seen it with my own eyes, I wouldn't have believed it. In the Nov. 1-7, 2013 issue of this paper I read a letter from the Town of Summerfield's town manager, Scott Whitaker. Shame on Mr. Whitaker for this submittal. Town managers should not ever make judgment, retaliate or bring forward and criticize the opinions of any citizen he represents.

Our country is founded on "freedom of speech." I know of "G Dunham," but not personally. This is a small town and people hear things. But the foundation of any governmental entity is to allow its citizens to have freedom of speech.

Yes, Ms. Dunham's letter to everyone was a bit overboard, but that is what democracy is about. If she wants to pay the costs of printing and mailing her election opinions, no matter how they are stated, then that is her right.
