Horner is off base

I think Frank Horner is simply wrong this time (The News, Sept. 18).

The so called “Gang of Three” campaigned for change and were elected decisively on that platform.

There were others options which the voters rejected. In fact Luchtmeijer received more votes that Mayor Westbroek.

For them to proceed differently would be unethical. To suggest the community should be surprised by their position on development is to question the intelligence of the voters.  As Frank Horner pays more attention to local politics that most others I find his thoughts surprising.
