Letter: Be respectful, please

About a week or so ago I was thinking how politely political our citizens of Glenwood Springs were — we have two three-way council races and one controversial ballot issue. 

It seemed as if citizens were engaged by attending public issues and answers, writing letters to the editor and openly discussing their points of view. It was exciting. 

And now, citizens, proposed candidates and proponents/opponents of the ballot issue are in a street fight of sorts.

I’m not writing to get into the game of verbal assaults but to simply say — are you really thinking about the good of the town or your ego(s)? Let everyone get their facts straight before speaking. If you have a “plan” to help Glenwood then state it, share it. 

And lastly, you don’t have to agree with one another but be respectful. The preverbal Golden Rule, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” never goes out of style.
