Personal problem on the front page

Dear Editor:

I was sorry to see your front page article on Brad Tuckwiller. Sorry that you chose to make someone’s personal problem front page fodder and that you chose to make this relevant to his bid for Commissioner. I am grateful for those who serve us in the political arena. It takes a lot of courage and fortitude to expose yourself to the public but there are people like Brad who do it in spite of the cost. We were well served with wise council and good judgment when he was a Commissioner before and I would assume we will benefit from this again. Perhaps others who run for public office will think twice… assuming your paper will use their personal problems as front page filler… or is it just the Tuckwiller family that you choose to target? I was glad that you at least allowed him to comment in his defense.
