Letter: Petitioners deserve credit for standing up
To the editor:
Thanks to Mark Fernald and Gail Cromwell for being willing to stick their neck out and offer up solutions whether they think they will be popular or not.
It is not easy taking difficult positions, and Mark and Gail have both been willing to speak up and work together, even though they often sit on opposite sides of the political spectrum.
We need more of all of that, and more people willing to respectfully and carefully listen, even when we disagree.
It would be foolish for anyone to assume my position regarding Article 8 from this letter.
