Letter: Show that you care about Tiverton — vote on Oct. 10

Posted

To the editor:

I have just finished reading the letter to the editor written by Donna Cook printed in the September 5 edition. In it she advises people to not vote.

Not voting is certainly not a useful way to express how you feel on a issue. In the particular upcoming vote to which she refers she states that the recall of Katz and Coulter is politically motivated by a person, or persons, who are upset at the outcome of the last election for town councilors. She says this is a back door attempt to negate the results of that election.

Explain, then, why 1,178 signatures were obtained to support the recall. This has more to do with the actions of these two town councilors, and less to do with pure politics than Ms. Cook would like us to believe.

My advice to all registered voters in Tiverton is to VOTE on October 10. If you agree with the recall then vote in favor. If you don't agree then vote against it. Please don't stay at home, VOTE. You can do an absentee or early ballot if necessary. Show that you care about what happens in your town.
