Letters to the Editor

Honest answers are needed in Langley | LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor:

In your June 1 article regarding “campaign” you quote: “…work to get the idea on the ballot started when the League of Women Voters held its forum on government models this spring.” I am challenging the veracity of this statement and the sources behind the statement and am asking the Record to review the truth and nature of those sources.

I have written the League of Women Voters to determine the following, and will file a formal protest if item No. 3 is accurate:

• Did the league initiate, organize and sponsor this forum without prodding from political groups?

• Did the league initiate, organize and sponsor this forum based on information provided by Ms. Seitle and Councilman Gilman?

• Did the league have any role in the forum; and, if not, was the forum an idea developed in discussions between Ms. Seitle and Councilman Gilman and presented under the guise of the League of Women Voters, an extremely unethical situation (as evidenced by discussions with Councilman Gilman and other council members) for the benefit of the secretive Change Government committee?

The League of Women Voters has a reputation for objectivity in local political matters.

I certainly hope their integrity is intact, and I am searching for honest answers regarding their involvement in this issue.
