New feature: Letter of the week

Introducing a new feature at YDR Insider: The letter of the week!

Each week, I will pick one letter to the editor to highlight on video – and the lucky writer gets a fabulous prize! Well, maybe not exactly “The Price is Right” fabulous. Actually, just a small token of appreciation for contributing something interesting, fun or provocative to the local public discourse.

I’ll try to be diverse in my choices – some liberal letters, some conservative, some that have nothing to do with ideology.

And even some complaint letters.

That’s how I’d classify the first winner, Jennifer Nesbitt of Spring Garden Township, who wrote this light-heart holiday-themed complaint letter in response to a recent YDR story that sort of spoiled one of her Christmas gifts. Sorry, Jennifer. Maybe the fabulous prize will make up for it?
