To the editor:

I think it’s important to note that the number of shoreline property owners who are funding Gary Tripp’s PAC is actually quite small.

Though many of us object to some of the more restrictive provisions of the SMP, that does not necessarily mean we approve of Mr. Tripp’s methods and tactics.

I am concerned that in the long run the divisiveness of those tactics may have done more to hurt than help our efforts to reach an equitable compromise with regard to shoreline regulations.

I am also concerned that in implying all shoreline owners support Mr. Tripp your article actually exacerbates that divisiveness.
