Root cause: Column motivated by anti-Jew feeling

Re: Editor Cal Beverly's column, “A suggestion on whom not to vote for in PTC” [The Citizen Review, Oct. 29]:

Faith in PTC voters was restored by election

My faith in the voters in Peachtree City was restored during the election on Nov. 2. Not only did they turn out in higher numbers than usual (almost 30 percent of registered voters), they cast their ballots to firmly say NO to annexation and NO to continued high-density development. Finally, the quality of life in our city took precedence over the huge profits of a select few. The majority has spoken, and developers should beware.

Congratulations to all winners at Northgate H.S.

Mayor's duty is also to represent non-voters

To Mayor Bob Lenox: As an elected official you do not have the right to chose which voice of the public you listen to; it is your sworn duty to hear all commoners' cries. After all opinions have been considered, then and only then must you make your decision. Your decision, if be you a loyal American, should be influenced by the common man's desires. If politicians such as you had complete control over the government (God forbid!), the effects would be cataclysmic. This great American Empire (yes, Empire) and all of its promises of freedom, gifts of human equality, and cornucopias of plenty would go marching backwards into the past. Back to monarchical rule. Back to religious persecution. Back to that horrifically funny ideal of Divine Right.
