Letter to the Editor

I am disturbed by Dr. Kathie Allen’s insensitive comments regarding her opponent, Dr. Brian Zehnder. Attacking others for their sincerely held religious beliefs is offensive and undemocratic. Allen has apologized, but that simply isn’t enough. It is obvious that she doesn’t have the temperament necessary for an elected official. It is my belief that Allen should withdraw from the state Senate race as soon as possible. I strongly urge Democrats to find a more stable, qualified and electable candidate; the people of Senate District 8 deserve it.
