Feehan politicizes tragedy

To the editor:

There’s an old adage that says adversity doesn’t build character, it reveals it.

Unfortunately, the recent tragic fatal accidents on Hwy 14 have revealed Dan Feehan’s character. I am appalled that anyone would be so desperate to achieve elected office that he/she would politicize the deaths of accident victims and exploit the grief of their families.

Individuals from all walks of life and across all political ideologies have been working on completing this dangerous section of Hwy 14 for over 50 years. Unfortunately, for countless reasons, this section of road has never received funding. That makes Dan’s attempt to blame Rep. Hagedorn for these accidents for crass, political purposes beyond contemptible.

How utterly shameful.
