To the editor:
I would like to take exception to Alayne White’s letter in your recent edition of Feb. 20, 2014. Ms. White shows a complete lack of respect for the experience of one of our town’s senior political leaders and lack of understanding of the principle of majority rule. Mr. Faria had the good sense to admit that the party may have made a mistake in endorsing a certain candidate who broke his word at the very first opportunity. Most of us registered Democrats will respect Mr. Faria all the more for his speaking up at this time. An endorsed candidate who broke his word on a very important issue after being elected is not unusual, but he definitely does not deserve the continued support of his political party.
Ms. White unfortunately completely misses the point of majority rule. Her unwarranted attack on Mr. Faria also shows a complete disregard for the honesty and integrity which we expect from our politicians.
