Letter to the Editor: We object to USG's handling of Referendum No. 3, but condemn attacks on our peers

“As leaders of an objection regarding USG’s management of Referendum No. 3, we strongly and unqualifiedly disavow those who have harassed the Chief Elections Manager, or alleged that he operated in bad faith. His was a simple and honest mistake.”
