To the Editor: Thank you, Mr. Buckley, for your statement issued Sept.17, “It’s clear from today’s vote that No-Plan-Victoria Sullivan does not inspire Manchester voters to go to polls, but does inspire racists…to turn out and volunteer for her extreme agenda.”
Ray Buckley, in the style of Hillary Clinton, has labelled 3,418 Manchester citizens who voted for Victoria Sullivan and those who will hopefully support her in November “a basket of deplorables.”
I am proud to be labelled a “deplorable” because I disagree with Democratic policies such as: out-of-control spending and taxation that has many cities and states bankrupt. Here in Manchester these policies seem to only benefit city employees and friends of the politically powerful.
Meanwhile, the problems go unresolved and quality of life in Manchester declines. What has Mayor Craig accomplished? Crime, drugs and panhandling not getting any better. How about Mayor Craig’s leadership on the school board? She was not able to control the petty squabbles and was part of them, which led to the loss of a fine and dedicated superintendent.
Victoria Sullivan proved when she served in the state Legislature to be hard working, knowledgeable and effective. I am asking the regular people of the city to join me and the other “deplorables” to please vote for a regular person, Victoria Sullivan for mayor.
