If we don’t pay attention and get involved on the side of nonviolence in politics, the next attack could be worse, writes Hopkinsville attorney and U.S. Army veteran Sarah Brechwald in a letter to the editor.
In the past, the General Assembly has redrawn legislative maps virtually in secret, resulting in lawsuits, delays and accusations of gerrymandering, writes Eileen White, vice president of the Hopkinsville-Christian County League of Women Voters.
The Christian County Retired Teachers Association supports several community service projects, and the members are among 602 retirees who earn $21 million in combined annual retirement benefits that help drive the local economy.
Each side is being slowly misled into believing that members of their in-group are the only ones worth helping or protecting, and the other group lacks value, writes Hopkinsville attorney Sarah Brechwald in a letter to the editor.
"The way in which the nonpartisan doctrine is being communicated to the city is both confusing and secretive. This is precisely why I believe in working closely with other Democrats, Republicans and Independents. No one political party is an island unto themselves. All parties have their own strengths and weaknesses."
