Letters to the Editor

Higher standards

It’s letters like this one of April 30 — “Fresen’s record” — that make one worry about the future of our country.

Regardless of one’s opinion of former state Rep. Erik Fresen’s track record in office, the idea that letting public servants commit tax fraud (or other corruption) would be “compassionate” is absurd. Public servants should be held to a higher standard.

Scrutiny of public figures’ financial affairs is the only thing precluding corrupt candidates from running. Good candidates have nothing to fear from disclosures.

Let’s not elect or tolerate any more public servants like Fresen.
