Resident responds to a letter previously published

This letter is in response to Bill Kalmar’s letter published on July 7, 2016.
I guess, according to the wordsmith Bill Kalmar in his letter published on July 7, 2016 I am one of those “self-serving” and “usual suspects.” Because, I am one of the guilty in having written one of those letters for a candidate that Bill Kalmar found disturbingly lacking due to not having met or matched his expected expressions of exhortations and extolling criteria.
If Bill Kalmar had decided to not get into a candidate support letter writing fray this past election or for any other future elections that is his free will choice.
With others (as well as myself) who have chosen to freely exercise their 1st Amendment protected rights to express themselves in writing letters to the editor for the candidates of their choice or for any other reasons … I say, “Good on you” and “Have at it. ” Do not allow anyone to stifle, attempt to prohibit or chill the ardor of your mode of expressing yourself through your natural free speech rights and protections.
Please convey the disturbing news to Bill that I once again wrote a letter sharing my personal viewpoints and suggestions that probably and most likely did not match or meet his criteria.
Mary MacMaster
Orion Township resident

    Thanks Mary for your passionate treatise on the election. You always bring a smile to my face with your ramblings! Actually you could have saved yourself a lot of time by just reading the last paragraph of my July 6 letter which said, “And by all means, don’t listen to anything I have to say!” Have a good day!
