I belatedly received this comment on my "Your Reporter Speaks" Blog Post. I will print it in full.
"Does this mean you will be reporting on events and seeking and verifying the facts, or will it be more of the opinions you gather at the Wheel by the townsfolk with an agenda who seek you out. Either way-best of luck-I think Bayview has replaced its' town Mayor!! Congratulations."
It was probably a good thing that this person, (unwilling to identify themselves) brought forth these points. Point one, my blog is mine to do with as I please. It is, so to speak, my sandbox. I will continue to offer opinions that are mine. I regret that you think I am of such low intellect, that I am swayed by whomever happens by. Having said that, you will note that all of my blog posts are in my name, with my e-mail address and so far, even my home phone number. I own what I say.
I may not attend those meetings that are held by rump organizations that I don't respect. I don't have to. I will make myself available when and where I can, consistent with my schedule. If you wish to make YOUR opinions known to me, you must first identify yourself. Only Cowards hide behind anonymity.
As to my column in the Spokesman-Review, you will not find such editorializing. I am going to write about community events, human interest stories, and news of common interest. Now, Sir/Ma'am, you will not have to guess from where I come. It would appear that this person hiding behind "Bayview Resident" is the one with an agenda here.
As to town Mayor, I do not choose to lead. I will leave that to those that I write about.
