I understand your need to have headlines that grab people’s attention, but I was dismayed by the “Council Rejects McGann” headline in last week’s paper.
While the article seems to be clear as to the facts of the meeting, the headline is quite prejudicial, especially so close to the mid-term elections.
While I support Mary McGann, and know for a fact that she has put a lot of hard work and time and energy into this job, I would hope that I would feel the same way about this headline if it were “the other party.” I have really appreciated the non-partisan government we have now in Grand County, with more voices representing a larger portion of the public. I am so sorry that, even in our small community, we seem to be headed the way of the rest of the country with left against right whether we like it or not. My wish would be that we could have more dialogue and be able to really listen to each other’s hopes, fears and visions for our community as a whole. Maybe then we could work together to create/maintain/whatever this wonderful community that we have all chosen to live in.
Very sincerely, one person who wants this community to “just get along.”
