Holden's Remarks

June 18, 1995

It is traditional to congratulate the winner, and Stan Sanders did just that in his election loss to Councilman Nate Holden. But Holden's post-election comments ("Holden Vows Retaliation After Tough Race," June 8) showed the kind of sore-winner attitude that turns off voters and helps produce the kind of abysmally low turnout seen in that race.

There is much to admire in Holden's career from state senator to City Council member, but certainly not his threats to punish colleagues who may have opposed him--instead of wondering why they did.
