Letter: Surprised by response to official reacting to diversity


Monday, August 13, 2018

It came as a surprise that the official who responded to the New York Times editorial espousing that New Hampshire needs to diversify was facing disciplinary action for his response.

When that editorial was posted to the internet it received almost all responses in the same voice. Why should the government even contemplate any change so we can “fit in”?

Spend an afternoon on Main Street in Concord on a Saturday and it will be obvious that New Hampshire is inclusive. The reality is that the immigrants you’ll see are trying to assimilate, not change New Hampshire.

As for me, the letter writer/government employee was expressing my sentiments exactly.
