Yates and Somerset officials shouldn’t send Letters to the Editor in official town capacity

Posted 31 January 2018 at 7:39 pm


When Letters to the Editor are signed as Supervisor or Councilman/Councilwoman for the Towns of Yates & Somerset, it is an unfair representation.

I certainly do not agree with your way of thinking in Yates and I am sure there are some residents in Somerset who would also agree with me. I think you have a right to your personal opinion, however, as board members you do not speak for all residents of both townships.

Therefore, your letters should be signed as a resident only.
