Letter about R-P referendum

Letter about R-P referendum

To the Editor,

This letter is in response to the commentary featured prominently in The Journal on November 26, written by Brett Kues, about the school referendum. I have never heard of Mr. Kues, even though I’m also a resident of Rushford, but he explains that he’s new to the area. Mr. Kues’ commentary is full of so many errors and misleading statements that it’s hard to know where to start. He makes a lot of statements but never cites specific sources, unless you count Google maps, which he used to find out how far it is to Peterson (he could have saved time on Google because any local person would have been happy to tell him how far it is to Peterson).

But what bothers me even more than all of his fear-mongering and untruths is his negative portrayal of the people of Rushford. Like Mr. Kues, I am not a Rushford native; I have been a property owner here for thirteen years. During that time I have witnessed the people of this town rise to great heights demanded by a lot of challenging situations. I’m very proud to be from Rushford, which is why Mr. Kues’ commentary made me angry. When you accuse our city leaders of being dishonest Mr. Kues, you’re not talking about some political leaders far away. You are talking about our own citizens - people who live in Rushford, have families, work here and have pride in our community, both present and future. For you to suggest that any of the boards or councils in Rushford are made up of less than honest, hard-working people is unbelievably insulting to all of us. Have you attended any meetings of local boards and councils? Well, I have, and what I see are sincere people who are willing to sacrifice their time to study issues of importance and make sometimes difficult decisions after careful thought.

Maybe where you came from leaders were dishonest and false in their efforts to improve their communities, but that’s not how we do things here. We all get one vote in the upcoming school referendum, Mr. Kues, and frankly, I don’t care how you vote. But I hope you’ll take the time to make sure you have your facts straight. More than that, I hope you’ll open your eyes and take another look at the people of Rushford because you’re reading us all wrong.
