Letter to the editor: Congratulations to Brown as senator

Tuesday, June 3, 2014 - 12:01 am

We should congratulate Liz Brown for her victory over Ken Fries.

We learned that Fries is, indeed, a sheriff, but he was not necessarily perceived to be adept for the position of state senator. Also, Brown does have political “glitter,” but as we know, “everything that glitters is not gold.”

Thirty-eight years ago, conservatives nominated a political rising star by the name of Dan Quayle, who did also possess political “glitter.”

Later, we found that he was not thoughtful or well read in classical literature. Hopefully, Brown can rise above Quayle and show that having a law degree is not necessarily an indication of mediocrity.
