A2/Howell: Politics

Maria Stuart, in an op/ed published by the Livingston County Daily Press & Argus, defends the community of Howell in response to a recent NY Times essay by “outsider” Eileen Pollack of Ann Arbor. Pollack’s essay had described her trip to Howell as she tried to discern the political climate there. “Perhaps you can tell that Pollack’s story torqued my sense of indignation about the community I love, a community that outsiders seemed determined to forever leash to the former grand dragon of the KKK who died so many years ago. I sure wish that when people want to write about us, they’d at least take the time to do some basic research.” [Source]
