Irene Newell: Override’s passage lacks civic compassion
To the editor:
On June 27 the Gazette published a letter in response to the passage of the Proposition 2½ override on June 25. I have since read this letter a dozen times because it so intrigued me.
I came to the realization that one word in the letter — compassion — meant so much. This vote did not show compassion.
Yes, Northampton, shame on you.
