WL Maner's letter published on the Opinion Page of The Virginia Gazette (March 2) titled “Time to retire the Electoral College” is spot on. The problem is (no disrespect intended) that it is published in The Virginia Gazette.
Hopefully, this letter was also sent to our elected representatives in Washington by Mr./Ms. Maner and sent — by means of photo copy or tearing from the Gazette — by everyone who reads it to those same people. The original letter — or copy thereof — should be sent to every presidential candidate with the hope that it will be brought to the attention of all our leaders and, sooner rather than later, become a reality.
