Letter: Legitimate, bipartisan concerns


Friday, February 17, 2017

John R. Cleary’s letter to the editor on Feb. 11 says that Democrats need to ‘get over it’ and accept the new Republican administration. But, there are some issues of concern that cross party lines.

I don’t think it’s whiney to ask that a law be passed to require the Treasury to release the president’s tax returns. It’s not being a ‘poor sport’ to ask for an independent commission to investigate Russian meddling in the U.S. election.

These are legitimate concerns that I hope both Republicans and Democrats share. I love America and I care deeply about it. It’s our job as citizens to be engaged in the democratic process and to actively question things that don’t seem right.
