I agree with Judy Hodgson's assessment of Aaron Newman continuing as a harbor commissioner ("Politics, Hunting — Both Sports," Nov. 27). It should be obvious that the fox is in the hen house and has been there many, many times, and knows how to avoid the appearance of illegal activities. His guilty plea to the charges when finally caught and his continuing as a commissioner indicate a lack of understanding of the role of elected officials. They are to uphold the laws of the community not flaunt them. I am dismayed that ethical standards are being ignored by citizens and commissioners alike and he is encouraged to stay in his position as a harbor commissioner.
I would like him to recognize his ethical conflict and resign.
