Letter to the editor

By NEMS Daily Journal

I wish to apologize for the letter written in anger asking all citizens of Lee County to boycott the election on Aug. 2.
I have been irritated by the state of the nation’s economic plight and the inability of our Senate to work together and find common ground to ease the sufferings of our fellow Americans.
In no way do I have the right to ask people to give up their right to vote, their personal voice in government.
It was never my intent to disclaim any local candidates seeking office. For this I humbly apologize.
On Aug. 2, I shall exercise my right and vote my conscience.
