MacMILLAN: Robbins Offers Fresh Outlook

LETTER from ROGER MACMILLIAN

Robbins Offers Fresh Outlook

To the Editor:

I wish to clearly support the candidacy of Mary- Margaret Robbins for trustee of the Village of Cooperstown. She is forthright, inventive, courageous and smart, having no hidden agendas.

Her allegiance is to Cooperstown, not any political party, though she does have bipartisan support!

Further, she has the maturity and circumspection to not support flying the rainbow flag from the village flagpole. She represents the opportunity to add another voice of reason to the Village Board.

MacMILLAN: Reserve Village Flagpole For The Stars & Stripes
LETTER from ROGER MacMILLAN

Reserve Village Flagpole

For The Stars & Stripes

To the Editor:

I am opposed to flying the rainbow flag from the Cooperstown village flagpole during Pride Month this June.

Let me make myself clear, I have many friends who have their personal orientation and I fully support them in every sense of the word. As such, it is none of my business concerning their individual persuasion.

However, I believe that the American flag flown from the central village flagpole represents all of us citizens and should not promote a particular minority or cause.

I have been informed that presently “on the books” is a decision by the trustees to fly the rainbow flag on the village flagpole this coming June. The decision by the trustees to do so may be revisited once the new board is elected next week.

I know that Mary Margaret agrees with me concerning the above, so I urge you to vote for her to keep the U.S. flag alone on the village flagpole.

In a previous letter I explained my many reasons for my preference for her and I am voting for Mary Margaret. Remember, every vote counts, so vote in this coming election.

MacMILLAN: Limit Flagpole To Stars, Stripes
LETTER from ROGER MacMILLAN

MacMILLAN: Limit

Flagpole To Stars, Stripes

To the Editor:
The citizens of this village owe you a huge debt of gratitude for last week’s editorial! Its message will hopefully serve as a wake-up call.

Some of the Village Board’s decisions have been stupefying, like injecting a suggestion to fly the POW/MIA flag on the village flagpole. Another future issue will be flying the Rainbow Flag on the village flagpole.

That proposal is outrageous. That flagpole should only fly the national flag, period, and not reflect the arrogance of an individual board member
