In the recent Howard section of The Baltimore Sun Larry Carson, when reporting on the upcoming Columbia Association elections, stated "that the CA board will remain an all white body for at least one more year in a town that celebrates diversity." ("What next? Watson has several paths to consider," April 3.) This is correct, but it is not the whole story.
When I decided not to run again this year for the position of the Village of Long Reach's CA representative, I first told two local African-American friends and asked each to announce this at their respective primarily African-American churches. I also stated that I would be willing to talk to any potential candidates to discuss the responsibilities, duties and few perks involved in campaigning and serving if elected.
