Dear Editor,

I’d like to express my appreciation to the officers of the Mesquite Police Department for responding to a number of calls regarding the aggressive behavior of several people approaching voters waiting in line in an effort to obtain signatures on a petition. The issue was handled very professionally by the officers even though one of the people involved continued to argue. Every citizen should be able to cast their vote without being accosted. Once again, I give many thanks to the Mesquite Police Department for their response to citizens’ concerns and enforcement of election laws.
