Dave Sullivan is not being completely honest in his portrayal of our positions on a senior center in the city ("Candidates not being totally honest on senior center," Mailbag, Oct. 14). During a forum in September, we discussed this issue at length with him and others present. Instead of using our complete answers to all of his questions in his comments, he chose to focus on a brief answer Connie Boardman wrote when she was allowed only 50 words to respond to a three-part question about the senior center.
Connie didn't run for reelection in 2004, in part, because she was caring for her elderly mother, who had Alzheimer's. She currently is coordinating the care for her father. Connie understands the needs of our seniors and needs no lecture from Sullivan about the generation who served us in World War II. Her father is a World War II veteran who received both the Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. She understands and appreciates the sacrifices this generation of Americans made at home and overseas.
