To the editor: Mr. Joe Leschinskie’s comments concerning the Home Rule Study Commission offers no solutions, just misinformation.

While it is obvious and American to be able to voice one’s opinion, and I certainly support everyone’s right to do so, it is troublesome to me that there remains such a campaign of fear mongering, misinformation and misleading commentary. One needs to ask, what is everyone afraid of when there is a ballot initiative to simply form a Home Rule Study Commission? It is a “study commission” to fact find, hold public hearings and develop a plan to move Shamokin to a viable solution to govern and address issues and concerns that have plagued the city.
