LETTER: Mangicaro’s letter twisted the facts

— President Reagan had a lengthy record of supporting Republican causes and candidates long before he became a Republican, starting with his support of Dwight Eisenhower in 1952. Mr. Reagan became a Republican in 1964 and continued to produce a substantial record of achievement before Republicans chose him to run for president in 1980.

Undoubtedly, in response to this letter, Mr. Mangicaro will say I too have “sour grapes” and will point out that I resigned from the Cicero Republican Committee. That is true. I resigned because I strongly disagreed with the appalling direction Chairman James Corl Sr. and Mr. Mangicaro, his vice-chairman, are leading the committee.

So let me close by paraphrasing President Reagan when he was asked why he left the Democrats.

I didn‘t leave the Cicero Republican Committee, the Cicero Republican Committee left me.
