Your Opinion: Response to Torres on local community

Dear Editor:

Ms Torres, I read with interest your letter in the Oct. 13 edition about how bad a place Jefferson City is to live. It’s too bad you feel that way, but I must say I agree with one thing you wrote. I, too, am happy you no longer live here.

The nice people of Jefferson City shouldn’t have to put up with a hateful snob such as yourself. Jefferson City deserves better than someone such as you living here. Just because all the people you knew were on welfare (birds of a feather?) doesn’t mean everyone is.

So, please, stay where you are, and have your family come visit you so you don’t have to lower yourself by coming to Jefferson City.

Issue-oriented letters to the editor in response to this or about other local topics are welcome. All letters should be limited to 400 words. The author's name must appear with the letter, and the name, address and phone number provided for verification. Letters that cannot be verified by telephone will not be published.
