Publishing of comment was inappropriate

In the article entitled “Navarre wins re-election” that was published on October 8, the Clarion quotes people and the reasons they voted for the candidates running for Borough Mayor. One of the voters from Nikiski stated that he voted for Tom Bearup because he thinks Mike Navarre is a crook. This is irresponsible journalism to publish such an unsubstantiated allegation.

I have known Mike Navarre for over 25 years both professionally and personally. Although we disagree with each other on many political issues, I know that he is a man of character and is honestly doing what he feels is in the best interest of the borough. He is not a crook. The Clarion owes him an apology.
