I am writing to comment on my quotations in last Friday’s “UP CLOSE: Woodbridge loyalists question Salovey’s leadership”. Your highly selective use of what I said to you gives readers the impression that I am a major critic of President Salovey. This is simply inaccurate. I repeatedly said in the interview that I support President Salovey. The complete absence of these framing comments creates the impression that I do not have confidence in him. It is not acceptable to cite someone in a way that is counter to their main point.
