Letter to the Editor: Crashing the Senior Picnic

To the Editor:

Unbelievable. Apparently, Hopewell Township Committee candidate Courtney Peters-Manning saw the Hopewell Valley Senior Picnic, held on Thursday, September 19, 2019, as a campaign event.  

There she was: neither a senior nor helping-out at this non-political gathering, which she clearly politicized by her inappropriate presence.

We seniors may be a little slow on the up-take, but, by definition, we were not born yesterday.

Frankly, even if Ms. Peters-Manning had been there to help-out, her new-found altruism would not have hid her real motivation that she was obviously fishing for votes. 

Crashing the senior picnic, in my view, evidences a distinct lack of judgment as well as disrespect for tradition.

Anyone that desperate to get elected clearly should not get elected.
