North Bay Po­lice As­so­ci­a­tion ‘dis­mays’ reader

North Bay Nugget - - OPINION -

‘the po­lice have a cer­tain amount of power in a com­mu­nity, but telling us who to vote for is not one of them’ to the ed­i­tor: i was very dismayed to read that the po­lice as­so­ci­a­tion is go­ing to take out an ad list­ing the can­di­dates that it sup­ports in the up­com­ing mu­nic­i­pal elec­tion.

if, as an or­ga­ni­za­tion, you want to send a let­ter to your mem­bers rec­om­mend­ing cer­tain can­di­dates, go ahead. but oth­er­wise stay out of the elec­tion process.

if i am pulled over for not stop­ping at a stop sign, am i go­ing to be asked who i plan to vote for. the po­lice have a cer­tain amount of power in a com­mu­nity, but telling us who to vote for is not one of them.

We all have the right to choose whom we want to vote for. if i needed your help in de­cid­ing i would have asked.
