Letter: About civility

I appreciated Garfield Republican chair Carrie Couey’s measured and civil response to the protests surrounding Sen. Cory Gardner’s appearance at a county Republican fundraiser.

She concludes: “We do not, however, believe that a confrontational approach is productive for any group demanding an action and will probably even make the possibility for such action they purport to want even less likely. It would be refreshing to have people, once again, go through the proper channels and exercise civility to achieve their aims.”

How refreshing! Because if you have eyes to see and ears to hear, you know that we live in toxic times. Incivility reigns, and it starts at the top.

I urge Ms. Couey to send along her positive message to President Trump.
