I read in the recent IT print issue (11/11-17) a letter from Mr. James Crawford where he shared his concerns about voting integrity and security risk with the immense number of paper ballots to process in this year's election. I felt it was a well thought out and explanatory piece by an individual *who was actually present in the room* and tasked with this challenge here in our County, who wanted us all to know about what he sensed and saw. Following this courageous action (i.e., his "exercise of free speech"), I learned he was served a letter from his employer, Tompkins County, notifying him he'd been placed on leave! Huh? Why!? Don't we all want the benefit of hearing a "watchman's" perspective? Would the County please inform us as to their reasoning for this action? I sure would like to know. Thank you.
