Show of support lacked unity

By Don Ahern


Dear Editor:

I commend Hank Lohmeyer's balanced reporting covering the women's march-affiliated gathering in Cedaredge, Jan. 21. The snowy-day assembly affirmed generally shared values, but as he reports, partisan presentations detracted from a unified show of local support for the global women's march organizers' expressed priorities: furthering women's rights to health, economic security, representation and safety.

Hopefully, follow-up events to such grassroots movements as the women's march will grow and provide meaningful results in our local area. I also hope Mr. Lohmeyer will continue providing his perceptive coverage of any such future events for the DCI.
