No Room for Alternative Facts

Letter from Barbara Campo

BY BARBARA CAMPO SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 29, 2017

Recently I was shocked to read threats made by local political operative Gabriel Hament against STOP! in this newsletter. I am a supporter of this organization and can't figure out why Mr. Hament would attack a local nonprofit in such a manner.

STOP! is working to make changes to Sarasota's zoning codes that allow the public to speak up about ways development in our city can be improved. STOP! is working with elected officials to help better manage the traffic congestion that is becoming a constant in our city. What is wrong with that?

Mr. Hament threw so many untrue charges at STOP! that it's difficult to see them as anything but an attempt to influence the upcoming runoff election. Let's return to a respectful conversation about the needs of our city and STOP! slinging mud at people who are working to improve Sarasota.

Barbara Campo, Sarasota.
