Ridenhour turned me off from the start
In response to “Matthew Ridenhour jumps into 9th District Republican primary” (March 7):
Matthew Ridenhour, who is vying for the vacant 9th District seat, was one of the early organizers of the Tea Party rallies. That in itself is more than enough to turn me off.
But two of his other statements definitely fall high on the list of ignorant ones. He said he is running because “the voices of socialists are growing louder and louder. ”According to Rid en hour “They want to ban air travel, farming, and bankrupt our country.”
Does he honestly believe that, or is he just fear-mongering? Some people never cease to amaze me!
