I am writing about Amy Horton who was fired by her employer, WWTI-TV/ABC50, because of her intent to run for a seat on the Watertown City Council.

To begin, I don’t know if her constitutional rights have been taken from her. Only a lawyer can answer that, but I would question that.

ABC50 should have allowed her to run. At the present time, she still has to survive a primary in June.

If that is successful, she still would have to prevail in November’s election to win the council seat. In her case, she is only running for a two-year term.

She should be allowed to run. If she loses, she will be out of her job and her political ambitions will be gone also.

ABC50 should stick with her until she might be elected. At that time, ABC50 could then decide to take action against her. She should have her job back until such time that she wins in November’s election.
