Letter: A different choice for Catalpa

If you liked last year’s proposed noise ordinance, you should re-elect Sue Hansohn to the Catalpa seat on the Culpeper Board of Supervisors.

Supervisor Hansohn was the architect of the proposed noise ordinance that allowed jail time for using a snowblower to clear your driveway at 4 a.m. so you could make that long, hard and cold commute to work.

Culpeper citizens woke up and came out in droves to oppose the Hansohn noise ordinance. On September 2, the Board of Supervisors voted 6-1 to kill it. Supervisor Hansohn was the only YES vote.

Rich Dykes is the Republican nominee in the Catalpa district and opposes onerous regulations like the Hansohn noise ordinance. As a retired Army officer and common sense conservative, he knows the “consent of the governed” is needed before even the most modest new regulations are proposed. He also realizes government should not criminalize activities that are part of everyday life.
