Dear Editor:

It is a pleasure to be able to highly compliment the article "Residents protest proposed layoff of 3 police officers" written by Rick Grant regarding our 2011 budget difficulties. The article is totally factual, accurate and complete, showing no bias toward township citizens or Board members.

Your reporter put in the time and effort needed to get the story right and township staff and the board of supervisors sincerely appreciate that effort.

Having complained many times about erroneous and garbled interpretations of the actions taken at the Kidder Township board of supervisors meetings by various voice and print media representatives it was a pleasure this afternoon to read an article that told it like it was.

Thanks

Larry Polansky,

chairman

Kidder Township

board of supervisors
