Letter: Holvik - Spears should not serve
I read in the Nov. 7 Sacramento Valley Mirror an article and letter to the editor from Brian Bonner that Bill Spears writes in his blog calling for a boycott of the Valley Mirror.
Mr. Spears is advocating canceling subscriptions, removing ads and encouraging citizens not to support businesses that elect to advertise in the Valley Mirror.
How dare Mr. Spears, a recently elected council member, advocate not supporting any Willows business? Is this how he responds to something he does not like or to someone who disagrees with him? It seems to me that Mr. Spears is deciding that some businesses are better than others.
What business will he target next? Where does it stop and where is the outrage from the business community?
Although I was not re-elected, I have had the opportunity to serve with a lot of great council members and this is not something any council member who cares about their community would ever think of doing. I would think the Chamber of Commerce and the business community would be demanding that Mr. Spears not take the oath of office or serve as a council member for the city of Willows.
We need people who will continue to support our businesses.
