Reading the letter to the editor in last week's Times form a person in Minong regarding our city clerk was very disturbing to me. I felt there were several judgemental statements and gross exaggerations.
We all sin, make mistakes and use poor judgement. Some mistakes are more obvious than others. Mary knows she has made mistakes and is truly sorry.
Loosing one's livelihood is certainly more than a slap on the wrist.
Mary Holte is my friend and I hope citizens of Westby can deal with this issue with kindness and compassion.
