Letters to the editor: Manlius village president showed courage

I want to applaud Manlius village president Gene Menard for taking the stand that he did last week. The trouble with so many of us today is we don’t take a stand for our beliefs and we crumble under pressure. That’s what is wrong with this country. We need more men like him who will stand up for what is right regardless of what the personal cost is.
I talked with Mr. Menard and told him I was going to use him as an example in my adult Sunday school class because we just finished studying how Peter took a stand and what it means for us to stand up publicly for what you believe in. He certainly lives his faith and it was quite obvious in our conversation. We are all going to be called to take a stand and I hope I have the courage to do as Mr. Menard did.
My hat goes off to you Mr. Menard and I challenge others to use his courage as an example.
Nancy Carper
