Writer wrong about Rep. Currie

Published 12:09 pm Thursday, January 5, 2017

Dear editor,

I am writing in reference to your Our Opinion column in the Daily Leader on Friday December 30, 2016. One does not have to wonder about your motivation in writing this column and slamming Representative Becky Currie and President Elect Donald J Trump. Thankfully, you are not the only one who has freedom of speech to express our opinions. You might consider the fact that Brookhaven is a very conservative community when addressing your readers and subscribers.

Representative Becky Currie is well loved and held in very high esteem by many in our community as well as the rest of her district. Perhaps, in hindsight, she should have proof read or spell checked her Tweet before sending out a Tweet with a misspelled word. However, a good proof reader or use of spell check is certainly something the Daily Leader might want to consider for your newspaper. In other words you might want to consider the log in your eye before noticing the speck in your brother’s eye.

In your editorial this past Sunday you mentioned that our (yours and mine) President Elect Donald Trump needs the people of God to pray for him. Your own words in Friday’s column could certainly be applied here “It is so far beyond hypocrisy  it’s laughable” after questioning President Elect Trump’s faith.

In regard to Russia’s possible interference with our Presidential election that has yet to be proven but is certainly an over used talking point for the far left. The United Stated needs to maintain good relationships with Russia as well as all countries in as far as is possible while maintaining a strong defense and hopefully avoid World War III.

Thank you for considering my opinion.

David Holland


Editor’s note: The “Our Opinion” referenced in this letter was about Rep. Becky Currie’s pro-Russia position, not the misspelling of a word in a tweet.
