Letter: Carpetbagger, defined
Re “Who are you calling a carpetbagger?” (Monitor Forum, Jan. 10):
My dictionary defines “carpetbagger” as a person from another state or who recently moved into the state and meddles the state’s politics. I go further: a person who moves into or takes temporary residence in a state for the sole purpose of running for office. Their intention is to represent themselves, not the interests of citizens of the state!
