I have to express both my astonishment and outrage that your paper, one that preaches civility of public expression and prints the name of each person expressing an opinion in your publication, would publish an anonymous attack ad against a candidate for Town Council.

This type of biased and irresponsible journalist behavior does not meet the standards of the small-town neighborly community that you serve. We all seek responsible development within our community and expect all discussions and decisions to be done civilly in the public forum.

The names of the contributors should be published to go with their opinion ad and an apology issued to the candidate so attacked.
