Letter: Putting Aside Politics

Letter to the Editor

To the Editor:

As the mother of a wounded warrior, I am appalled at Del. Barbara Comstock’s (R-34) apparent inability to put aside partisan politics to honor our wounded men and women and their families. (“Clemyjontri Park Welcomes Wounded Warriors”, Aug. 1, 2012). The ordinance that wounded the military members and changed their families’ lives forever did not consider whether the soldier was a Democrat or Republican. Wearing a Romney t-shirt at the Yellow Ribbon Fund picnic was disrespectful. This was a non-partisan event. Campaigning for Romney, and reportedly bashing President Obama, crossed the line.
