David Wheeler has lost his vote

Letter to the Editor

It is rare that I send a letter of support during election seasons. I prefer to send my message at the voter’s booth. In the case of David Wheeler vs. Steve Hattamer, I am making an exception.

Mr. Wheeler may want to consider such a process before publishing his claims against Dr. Hattamer, as noted in the flier I found in my mailbox addressed to me, my wife and my mother.

I would also ask Mr. Wheeler to also consider removing my long-deceased mother from his mailing list. Her death has been a matter of public record for many years. Given that she was a local town clerk for more than 25 years, she would have found it appalling you did not have a better grasp of the constituency.
