News of our town has been the subject of controversy here so I thought I would add this.
I moved to this lovely place 11 years ago and have never encountered a disagreeable person.
It is truly a great town.
It seems well run and has always been accommodating to me.
There are 13 neighbors along my gravel road and I don’t know the political affiliation of any of them.
I never asked what political party someone preferred and no one ever asked me.
It would be unseemly to do so. But I do know they would come to my aid, and have, if I needed it.
I have never put a political sign on my property. Others have a perfect right to do so, but I have never seen one along my road.
I was raised that with good manners, religion and politics were private and voting was done in a private booth where you exercised your constitutional right and went home and were quiet about it.
I think it would help a lot if we tried that.
Recently a woman named Virginia Heffernan wrote an oped for the L.A. Times about her neighbors, I hope her attitude never surfaces in Sequim.
It’s a great place to live. For everybody.
