Un­fair crit­i­cism of Bob Morrow

The Hamilton Spectator - - COMMENT -

RE: Not a legacy we should be cel­e­brat­ing (Jan. 5)

Re­ally? You’re tak­ing of­fence at Bob Morrow, and an ail­ing one at that? Not only is he still Hamil­ton’s longest­serv­ing mayor, he did not one, but two terms as a cit­i­zen­ship judge, to name but a few.

You chose to take one is­sue from his long and stel­lar ca­reer, and high­light it. Say­ing he is not el­i­gi­ble for recog­ni­tion, be­cause of it, is ex­tremely harsh. Others have been rec­og­nized for a lot less.

Ev­ery­one should know he is so much more than the pic­ture you painted, and your words should not be why he is remembered. Laura Bernardi, Stoney Creek
