Letter to the Editor

Honor the will of the people

Monday, August 20, 2018

In the Aug. 7 election, Missourians, by a two-thirds majority, voted down Prop A. Since then, I have heard rumor that some state legislators are considering enacting such legislation anyway. Such action would be in direct opposition to the vote of the people.

Such legislative action would be a blatant assault on our democratic rights. We have made our opinions clear at the ballot box. Legislative nullification of our votes would indicate a major problem for us as Missourians, and as Americans.

I sincerely hope said rumors are not true. If they are, our democracy and its institutions are in trouble.
