Bridges to Somewhere

There is no question that you have rights and I don't have time to sit and debate in a 5 year old fashion, what you can and cannot do.

In my letter no where did I mention your name, I was talking to everyone that feels the need to meddle somewhere they are no longer residing or paying taxes. Your letter was just the one that put me over the edge. But you felt the right to point your finger at Jerilyn and I. Well we are not the only ones to feel this way, and I'm sure you felt this way when you resided here when people tried to but in on your community.

My letter was just pointing out things I have heard in my community of Ketchikan, concerns about children and families being able to stay locally.

And I will say again - FOR THE BRIDGE, AGAINST THE BRIDGE - FOR THE ROAD OR NOT - when you move back here and start paying local taxes and actually start participating in the community that you say you love so much, then maybe we can have a cup of coffee and I will listen to your opinion, but now you're an outsider and well your opinion just seems like meddling.

So sit down take a breather - have a cup of coffee and remember I have rights too and I am constitutionally insured that I can speak the way I feel also and I am a Ketchikan Tax Payer.

Please have a good evening Don. Don't stress on this subject of the bridge it is really bad for your health, and just remember if you voice your opinion others will voice back.
