The Sept. 22 Editors Mailbag has a letter from Eric Larson. He writes: “It is sad to see how evil, hateful people have taken over the City of Jefferson.”
I would inform Mr. Larson that his definition of evil needs to be reviewed. He also states that “Ms. Hamby and her cabal have bullied their way in and taken over.” The cabal that he refers to are members of the Lions Club who provide services to those who require help with hearing and sight; Community Center Board of Director members who provide a place for the community to gather; Friends of the Library who have raised thousands of dollars to build a new library; Jefferson High School Booster supporters who donate hundreds of dollars to support sports activities; Food Pantry volunteers who work countless hours; local business owners who offer products to residents; faith community mentors who offer spiritual guidance; and the many diverse and dedicated folks who serve on multiple government and nonprofit committees which enhance Jefferson’s quality of life.
I am proud to be a part Jefferson and celebrate with those who live, work and play in Jefferson!
