Letter to the editor

Student will keep debating

March 2, 2007

I would like to thank the Student Voice for their coverage of the President’s Day Debate at the UC. Many of the participants were happy to see such a large turnout of students and community members for this event. The Student Voice coverage certainly helped to bring this information to a broader audience.

I, and several other participants, felt that some of the quotes used did not quite match what the participants said. After reviewing the audio tapes of the event, it was found that indeed some of the quotes did not match what was said. Have no Fear! I am quite sure that I will continue to offer opinions wherever a willing audience can be found (I have no doubts that other students who participated will do the same). I am also quite sure that I will continue to listen to and learn from the ideas of other members of the community, one of the points of the debate, to bring the best ideas from many divergent areas together.

There are many elections occurring in April in Wisconsin, among them are elections to the city council and to the state supreme court. I hope that the Student Voice continues to serve the student body by providing coverage of the important elections. I, as I often do, have my own opinions about the candidates for these elections and will offer these in the coming weeks through letters to the editor and wherever I can find a convenient soapbox.

Your readers, I am sure, will appreciate the unbiased version from your writers that will help them make informed, wise decisions about who they want to represent them and protect their rights.

Thank you for your continued service to the students of UWRF. I look forward to your coverage of the Wisconsin spring elections.
