Metsa worth your vote
To the editor:
I am writing this letter in support of Janet Metsa for State Representative. I had the opportunity to hear Ms Metsa speak early this summer. She has a degree from MIT, and has a deep understanding of science and technology. She spoke about a number of issues, and displayed an impressive grasp of the facts. She did not engage in rhetoric or slogans, but gave well reasoned analysis.
In an era when most politicians engage in nothing more than stirring conflict and hatred, it was refreshing to hear someone who was actually making a serious effort to consider the facts, and not merely repeating political slogans. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like there’s much of that in Lansing. Whether you agree with her on any particular issue, she will bring that ability and desire to deal with the facts first.
If we allow ourselves to review facts through the prism of ideology, our vision will be distorted.
