Letter: Quiring entitled to opinion


“We can no longer afford to have that type of mentality in public office if we are to make change,” said Diana Perez (“Quiring remark sparks outrage,” The Columbian, June 28).

Really? I believe this is called having an “opinion” and “understanding of history.” Eileen Quiring and Perez are both entitled to theirs. Why would some be allowed to bypass the process to impose their will on the rest of us? Ms. Quiring is currently part of that process and not using her position to do that. Ms. Perez appears to be attempting to do just that.

Bad form, indeed.
