Candidate Lennon Deserves Better


How is it that an article promoting Yitzy Schleifer’s candidacy in the City Council’s District 5 race ends up with a headline alleging anti-Semitism, based on one unsubstantiated quote from a Facebook post (“Alleged Anti-Semitism in Council Race,”  Jan. 15)?

The accused, Derrick Lennon, also a candidate, is a longtime community leader who has worked well with people of all races and religions as president of the Glen Neighborhood Improvement Association. The headline and accusation would even be inappropriate for the National Inquirer, much less  the Jewish Times. Lennon has served the association with dedication for many years and certainly deserves better.
