Letter: Care to vote for South Portland dog ban

I think members of the SoPo Dog group are very selfish about Willard Beach. They care only about their own and their dogs' social lives.

They don't care about all of the people who have been bitten by dogs. They don't care about the 82-year-old woman who was knocked down by a dog. She hit her head and was dazed. Luckily, she had a friend who helped her home.

They don't care about the little girl screaming in fright because a strange dog knocked her down. They don't care about the elderly who are afraid to walk the beach because of the dogs.

They don't care about the people living along the beach who can't sleep in the mornings because of the barking dogs and the people chatting as if it were the middle of the day.

Well, I do care. I believe that people are more important than dogs and I'll vote for the people.
