Poor taste

I am very incensed at the lack of sensitivity and respect concerning the headline 'Sawatzky takes out Lippert'

I am very incensed at the lack of sensitivity and respect concerning the headline ‘Sawatzky takes out Lippert’ you displayed on the front page of the Nov. 20 edition of The Morning Star.

Wayne Lippert has been an honourable, hardworking, devoted and honest mayor for his past two terms as mayor of Vernon.

He deserves our respect and a huge thank you from the citizens of Vernon. I trust you will acknowledge this in a future edition of your newspaper.
