Letter to the Editor: Lancaster Stands Up Supports Long-Held Community Values

letter, LTE

My family has lived in Lancaster County since 1715. I have lived in the area for all of my 62 years. I am also a member of Lancaster Stands Up.

I am dismayed by Congressman Lloyd Smucker’s fundraising letter, which suggests I am among those “infiltrating the community” with radical ideas. My values are rooted in the Christian values passed down by my ancestors. I support all of God’s children and work to ensure all are protected and cared for without regard for their race, religious beliefs, age, physical or intellectual abilities, country of birth, financial status, gender identity or whom they love.

Lancaster Stands Up is committed to preserve what is good about Lancaster County. Smucker’s attempt at slander suggests he is not.
