Yes, Elfers is off the mark

I totally agree with what Joe Marks wrote in his letter, on July 5, titled “Elfers is off the mark denigrating Republicans,” especially where he said, “the article is mundane and meaningless; insulting and demeaning.”

It was a well written and interesting letter for us, Republicans, to read.

I’ve read that piece myself that Marks had talked about that was published in the Auburn Reporter on June 21. And my reaction after I’ve read that piece were these words: “a perfect reflection (cut and paste) of the fake news media.” So I just kind wiped off my shoulders of that “dirt” and moved on to other pieces to read.

I just want to say to Joe Marks: “Yes, thank you for writing that letter. I enjoyed reading it.”
