I believe The Bellingham Herald has once again done a great job of pandering to the liberal progressives in this community while making a mockery of the political process and one man's incredibly distinguished career. Dave McEachran has dedicated his life to standing up for victims of violent crime, many of whom can no longer speak for themselves, because they are not alive to do so. He has done this while working in a seriously underfunded criminal justice system, and still maintains his poise, self respect and a relentless work ethic.
If the liberals in this community are so offended by the fact that he identifies with the Republican party and may have some conservative values, then why don't they find a qualified candidate to run against him? Instead, they write in a dog. And The Bellingham Herald jumps at the chance to promote this!
It would be refreshing, if for once, The Bellingham Herald would strive to maintain some journalistic integrity and be objective in this situation. If you are going to dedicate so much print to a 9-month-old puppy, I sure hope you'll do the same for a man who is one of the greatest public servants this community has ever known.
