Letter: Perspective On BOE Candidates


Share post:

To the Editor:

We’ve only been Verona residents for 24 years, but I knew after listening to all the candidates at the League of Women Voters session that I was voting for Mike Boone. He had the most to say, but Drappi and Verzella also impressed.

I admit to leaning Verzella because of the earlier poisonous letter alleging she didn’t share “our values,” though checking her Twitter feed revealed her commitment to protecting our children from gun violence (as well as making sure we’re proactively including special-ed kids)! Meanwhile (as reported on this site 10/19), Ferrera and Spiegeland share vast financial support, some of it from out-of-town. … No matter, since they gave no good reasons to vote for them.
