As a constituent of wonderful Frederick County, I am mortified at the behavior of our elected official, county Commissioner Blaine R. Young. I don’t agree with his politics, but I am always open to listening and hearing the other side. I want to be informed, even if the facts don’t align with my political beliefs.The headline, “Anti-growth whiners…” (The Gazette, Forum, March 21), should have tipped me off. In a 20-paragraph commentary, there are only seven that do not denigrate his constituents that disagree with him. He says his detractors “whine” and “complain,” are “malcontents,” “selfish,” and “live in fantasy world,” questions their motives and says they deal in lies. What else did I learn? Oh yes, that the school system is fine, and developers don’t need to pay into the system because there are no problems.
