Letter to the editor: No logic or common sense in politics

I was dismayed when I read the letter from Jack Davis espousing how Shirin Elkoshairi’s letter “called out all the misinformation about the La Center mayor and city council being posted on social media.” First of all, the council meetings are taped, Jack, and can be listened to later, so there’s no way to know how many residents get the information.

Anyone can request information through the Public Release of Information Act.
