To The Editor:

Hear, hear Ms. Cunningham! We strongly agree with all of the points in your letter to the editor of Oct. 5, 2013. Sen. Nieves has clearly demonstrated his bullying tendencies over the years, as well as his far right wing-not ideas.

More folks who agree with less radical agendas need to speak up and actively defend those conscientious enough to stand by their convictions in print as Ms. Cunningham did.

Sen. Nieves’ attitude does not represent the majority of Franklin County. It is disappointing that a few voters are able to get these types of politicians into office.

If more people paid attention and voted, perhaps we wouldn’t have to have politicians looking for loopholes in order to give away assault weapons as prizes for campaign contributions.
