Miloscia has courage | Letter to the editor

Taking a stand is sometimes a lonely place if you touch a nerve with your honesty.

I’m proud to stand with Sen. Mark Miloscia, who apparently has either hit a nerve or has been intentionally misunderstood.

I think it’s safe to say that most people in our Federal Way-area know Mark Miloscia. Mark has been voted into office(s) for the better part of 20 years.

We have elected, re-elected and trusted Mark to represent us.

Who among us does not want honesty? Do you want politically correct leaders who remain silent, or worse, mislead you?

This brings me to “Mr Federal Way.” The humor “he” may intend has become tiresome. The playfulness is now a petulant tantrum.

Let me be honest too, the posting of an anonymous column on the Editorial page reflects on the newspaper editor and publisher. It reflects in a biased political sense.

One last thought. We live in a county with a precious Bill of Rights. Yes, our opinions are protected.

“Mr Federal Way” analyzed Mark Miloscia’s comments about protesters who were vandalizing, intimidating, swearing and hateful.

Then “Mr Federal Way” flipped Mark’s call for civility and peace as though Mark was controversial!

In the words of Whoopi Goldberg, “We’re here for a reason. I believe a bit of the reason is to throw little torches out to lead people through the dark.”

Thank you Sen. Miloscia for your courage in holding a torch of decency to lead us to see that we can disagree without being disagreeable. And we can peacefully assemble without vulgarity, cursing and threats.

We’re going to be needing little torches of honesty to find our way through this election cycle.

Maureen Bernardy, Federal Way
