SOUND OFF June 29, 2012

Sound Off highlights anonymous, brief takes on the news offered via telephone by Daily News readers.

I’m calling about the article about too many people in Washington, too many tourists. I don’t have a business here or a restaurant or anything, but it’s very hard for these businesses to make money with the low population that we have here, and I am for having the tourists come in and plenty of them. I think it helps our businesses; it helps the town grow. I wish the paper really wouldn’t put in negative stuff like that. Just from one old grouch, I think it sends a bad signal to the tourist industry in general.
