Editor’s note: The following letter is in response to the letter “Anne Gerwig And Canal Cleaning” by George Unger, published last week.
Let me say loud and clear that Councilwoman Anne Gerwig has stood strong in representing her village. She continues to withstand outrageous attacks from those who wish to silence good elected officials, of which in my experience in the elected world, most unfortunately, is not many.
George Unger has for years ravaged the reputations of women elected officials in the Royal Palm Beach/Wellington communities, attacking their characters with lies and innuendos. Using the power of the editorial page to publish his false allegations, he has counted on the readers to believe his baseless accusations.
The Village of Wellington could not do better than to have someone of Ms. Gerwig’s honesty and intelligence to serve as their mayor. I hope that come 2016, the residents support her integrity and look for others to serve on the council that will honor them with the same public service.
Martha Webster, Royal Palm Beach
