Harassment always unacceptable: Community must find common ground | Letter


The training flights of the Navy Growler planes continue to create controversy in our community.

There are strong feelings on all sides, yet we need to find common ground to move forward.

Name-calling, harassment and intimidation is unacceptable behavior — from anyone. Bullying tactics further polarize neighbors and do not bring our community closer to solutions.

I believe that the road forward is found with mutual respect and civil discourse.
