YOUR VIEW: I don't support the Bristol Democrats

To the Editor:

Earlier this week, I was stopped at the traffic light at the intersection of routes 72 and 229 waiting to take the left turn under the railroad trestle.

There is an electronic billboard next to the bridge. One of the e-signs is extremely misleading and I would like to add clarification. It reads, “Bristol’s backing,” then the next line has the photos of the local Democrats running for office, then the final line reads “We the People.”

I am a Bristol resident. However, I do not back the Democrat candidates. Therefore, the use of the contraction “Bristol’s” meaning “Bristol is” is totally incorrect. Some of Bristol is backing those candidates, but not all of Bristol.

I am quite annoyed that the creator of the sign has assumed that they speak for the entire city.
