Forced to respond again

For the second time in two years, I find myself responding to a letter

submitted to The Garden Island by Robert Yount.

The first time was during

the very heated political battle for or against “same sex marriage”.

Mr. Yount apparently was displeased with anyone who didn’t have the same

opinion as he, and continually expressed this in the newspaper.

After Mr.

Yount felt the need to belittle my opinion in The Garden Island, I replied back

and at that time gave him way more credit for his opinion than he


Now, he is insulting the integrity of an organization I choose to

be a member of BECAUSE of its integrity.

Mr. Yount, it is part of the

League of Women Voters’ mission to keep citizens informed on issues for each

election. Sponsoring a public forum to discuss any “Constitutional

Amendment” questions falls under that category.

Perhaps it is Mr.

Yount who should apologize to the citizens of Kaua`i and Ni`ihau for subjecting

us to the hate mail he feels compelled to keep submitting to The Garden
