Keep up the good work

In response to two columns offering two very different but thoughtful perspectives on the Judy Manning appointment…

Dear Editor,

This letter is in response to both Hans Rollmann’s column “Don’t judge Judy” (Oct. 7) and Drew Brown’s piece, “Irresponsible Government” (Oct. 9).

I wanted to take the opportunity to commend Rollmann on his well-written piece detailing the recent appointment of Judy Manning. I too had joined mainstream media in questioning Premier Davis’ action. However Rollmann brings forth several good points and quite frankly his column cut me to the quick. This being the second time in days that I have caught myself with a somewhat sexist point of view. Hopefully it’s good that I’m catching myself but I’m a little embarrassed to say the least – I had to stop and ensure I still had all my female body parts. I bet you don’t hear that phrase very often in regards to your editorial coverage.

I wanted, as well, to thank Drew Brown and also commend you as Editor. It was quite interesting to later in the week read Brown’s rebuttal piece on Irresponsible Government. It was both educational and interesting with Brown offering a counter view point. And somehow he managed to breath life into an often dry subject, like parliamentary systems.

Thank you for the diligent work of you and your team. Please know it does not go unappreciated…keep it up.
