Letter to the editor: Thanks to Bloom for standing up to board

Thursday, March 21, 2013 - 12:01 am

The plan to abolish the Allen County Board of Voters Registration and put the duties under the majority-party control of the county clerk has failed.

Linda Bloom should be commended and recognized for her stalwartness as she withstood the strong accusations of flip-flopping and standing in the way of progress by her fellow Allen County Commissioners, Nelson Peters and Therese Brown. The motion failed because of the unanimous vote required.

This action should forestall in Allen County the voter suppression movement that has surfaced in many other counties and states of our nation.

Our present bipartisan co-directors and employees of the Voters Registration Office have served voters well with a protective policy of balance and efficiency as they prepare for the countywide election of officers next year.
