First of all, thank you for having a "letter to the editor" section so that our voices of Philomath can be heard. I appreciate knowing what my neighbors are thinking about as it relates to the town we call home. Often it's a different opinion and this allows me consider their perspective. Sometimes it's difficult to see the other side, but having the space to read about various opinions is surely a way to begin understanding and knowing our neighbors.
Another way to find out about our neighbors is to ask their opinions. In a small town such as Philomath, one can never assume what the perspective is of the majority of residents unless one asks.
