Letter: Oak Harbor’s mayor isn’t speaking for everyone


I write to agree with the “Navy Brat’s” letter of Aug. 14 regarding the mayor’s letter about the state AG’s lawsuit. The mayor indicated that we all agree with him. No, some of us would like to ask the Navy to be more reasonable.

Treat us as people, not objects.

The signs in town thank the Navy for jobs and businesses. Fine, that keeps Oak Harbor going, for sure.

But what about noise? I am used to planes off their path going right over my house. Let’s not add more planes.

Will there be some signs put up in town suggesting that? No, wouldn’t want the Navy to think we don’t love them.
