Letter changed my mind

Not long ago I read an opinion on this page, written by a Republican who stated that she would vote in opposition to her party on the 5th District race for Congress. It got me thinking, because I’ve voted Republican myself - perhaps without always doing enough research or giving the matter lots of thought.

That letter persuaded me to take a closer look at the facts, not just the party lines of either group, and resulted in a change in my perspective, as well as a change in my vote.

Letters to the editor actually do open eyes, spur some research, provoke thought, and change minds!
