Worry for nothing

To the Editor:

I was worried about the Borough election until I reviewed the voter registration list for Petersburg.  I discovered that Petersburg has twice as many Republicans as Democrats.  (602 R’s vs. 297 D’s)  Since Republicans believe in smaller government, they will naturally vote against the borough since becoming a borough will expand governmental control by 100 times.

Simple logic now lets me sleep easier at night.  Borough = bigger government.  Republicans are against bigger government.  Therefore, Republicans are against the borough and will easily defeat it in the upcoming election.  Whew.  All that worry for nothing.
