Letter to the Editor
Reader feels parades are not a place for politics

December 12, 2012

Dear Editor,

It was a festive, fun Holiday Lights Parade Saturday night, but I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw a float with the elephant of the Republican Party placed in the middle after a year of being surrounded by posters, argumentative commercials on TV and radio, to see that "politics" placed itself in a holiday parade.

Perhaps what would have been more appropriate would have been a float wishing Jewish families and friends a Happy Hanukkah, since it began the night of the parade.
