Protest characterization offers misleading view

Thirty public speakers does not indicate a mass turnout

Re: Sewage decisions delayed (News, Nov. 16)

Since when does a “mass public turnout” involve 30 public speakers? There’s no indication in the story that there were hundreds, much less thousands at this well-orchestrated protest. To suggest otherwise is misleading and playing into the hands of the small crowd.

Tens of thousands of people support the sewage plan as the right thing to do.
