To the ed­i­tor:

RecentlyI a let­ter ap­peared in the Times Chron­i­cle reJDUGLnJ PDLOHG fly­HUV SUR­vid­ing mis­lead­ing in­for­ma­tion. Mrs. El­iz­a­beth Barn­hart wrote ex­press­ing con­cern about a news­let­ter she re­ceived from me which con­tained an ar­ti­cle on voter ID. The ar­ti­cle of­fered no opin­ion on voter IDI just the facts. eow­ev­erI it be­came out­dated by the time it was de­liv­ered to homes in Abing­ton Ward U. On Oct. OI there was a court de­ci­sion ad­vis­ing vot­ers (ex­cept for fiUVW-WLPH YRWHUV) WKDW SKRWR IDs would not be re­quired to vote. Upon learn­ing of the de­ci­sion and know­ing my news­let­ter was al­ready mailed via bulkI I im­me­di­ately or­dered post­cards ad­vis­ing res­i­dents of an up­date to the in­for­ma­tion in my news­let­ter.

Ad­di­tion­al­lyI it has come WR Py DWWHnWLRn WKDW D flyHU was dis­trib­uted to the res­i­dents of the ward I rep­re­sentI ac­cus­ing me of de­lib­er­ately dis­tribut­ing false in­for­ma­tion. ThisI of courseI is ridicu­lous and against ev­ery­thing I be­lieve in. As al­waysI the pur­pose of the news­let­ter and sub­se­quent post­card was to be cer­tain all res­i­dents of Ward U could vote on Elec­tion Day. Most im­por­tantly the news­let­ter con­tained sev­eral ways to contact me if there were any ques­tions or con­cerns.

Ms. Barn­hart also wrote that she hoped I would do the right thing and sin­cerely hoped I was plan­ning on send­ing out a cor­rec­tive mail­ing. She will be happy to know that I did just that — and it was de­liv­ered this past week­end.
