Editor,

On March 6 at the Berlin Library, a scheduled informative lecture on impeachment … was canceled [and a] notification read, “The program’s purpose had been misrepresented and a number of people have taken to the internet and social media to express their opposition of the presentation.”

Some threatened to disrupt the presentation and to use the event to hold a rally. Those postings raise a concern for the safety of those who planned to attend and the patrons of the library, including children using the library at the time of the presentation.

I took the liberty and called the [Library] Director Jennifer Ranck, a wonderful asset to the county. Due to the threatening nature, she made the call to cancel.

What about my rights as a resident and citizen to receive informative information? Is this going to happen if I take a class at Wor-Wic college?

Enough of these minority people disrupting our lives. Ocean City belongs too not only the residents, but the many visitors.
