Letter: We vote where we live



I take Mr. Smith’s comments (in the Dec. 8 edition of Current in Carmel) to indicate that only property owners should have a vote and renters should not. Maybe it’s his opinion that we should have no apartments in Carmel. Or maybe he’d like the presidential voting parsed out by sex, race, age and faith so we can blame the Carmel results on certain other attributes.

Luckily, that’s not the way it works. We vote where we live.

It’s amazing that Mr. Smith knows that it was the renters that tipped the election results to Biden. I’ve owned a home in Carmel for over 30 years and disagree with Mr. Smith’s thinking.
