Candidate critic hiding behind free speech rights

BRATTLEBORO — RE: “Allen: hardly standing for the working poor,” Letters, Feb. 20:

Mr. Mills, you, and people like you, are the reason why local citizens do not run for office.

You have no idea who I am. Nor have you ever attempted to call and have a civil conversation with me to ask.

You hide behind one of our most precious rights, free speech. You are a coward and a hateful person who lives in fear of everything. I will not attempt to correct most of what you wrote for I fear this will just add fuel to your hatred.

P.S. Thanks for voting.
