Davis Patch received the following letter from a Davis Ace Hardware employee Tuesday afternoon.
The previous night, a letter was posted on DavisWiki that was sent by Davis Ace owner Jennifer Anderson to her employees encouraging them to vote for Mitt Romney.
Here's the anonymous letter. Share your thoughts below:
As an employee of Davis Ace, I commend the people of Davis for voicing concerns on Jennifer Anderson’s means of expressing her political agenda. However, I would like to implore you all to do so with phone calls, letters, petitions, and for those of you in journalism, with interviews and media coverage; and I ask you, please, do NOT boycott Davis Ace.
Anderson’s mistakes aside, Davis Ace IS a local business. It keeps money in the local economy. More importantly, it employs over 100 people, all of them residents of Yolo County. We do not agree with or condone the political actions of our boss, but if you boycott our place of employment, it is us, the employees, who will suffer the most. As much as I disagree with Anderson’s poor choices in dispensing political information and the inappropriate implications in the recent letter, I want to keep my job, and I don’t want to see a local business fail. I am very grateful that there has been such a response from the community on the subject. And I ask the people of Davis to please express their displeasure and to demand change in a way that does not endanger a valuable source of local economy and the livelihoods of your neighbors. Thank you.
