Defending titanic comments

I was taken aback by a letter in your March 26 edition referring to remarks made at the recent DEQ ozone hearing. The writer implied that a CURED representative is responsible for our nationís economics, passage of Obamacare, pension costs of public sector employees, sage grouse endangered species candidacy and the natural resource extraction industry. What?

I attended the meeting and heard reasonable, well-researched and profoundly insightful comments from multiple Sublette residents and neighbors. Though we may not agree with everyone, our community is best served when we defend our neighbors using their First Amendment right to speak freely on a topic of concern to them, in this case clean and healthy air for everyone. Many of our neighbors will not take their personal time to attend a public meeting and speak out as they are afraid they will be subjected later to personal attacks. Our rights as citizens of our great nation, specifically the First Amendment right to free speech, must be exercised or we will lose the rights we hold so dear. 

Jocelyn Moore, Cora
