To the editor,

In recent letters to the editor concerning the city council and the new city water park, we have read repeated disparaging references to Benito Juarez and by association, the Hispanic community of Stephenville. We feel these statements are racist and insensitive to our Hispanic sisters and brothers. We celebrate our Hispanic community and thank them for all they do to make Stephenville a great place to live. We look forward to enjoying the new water park with everyone and support the city council for providing a quality recreational facility for everyone in our community.
