Welfare as we know it: in defense of Ashley

To the Editor:

Having read the letter to the editor from Ashley S. to the Caledonian-Record on the 9th of March where she pleaded for folks to support the People's Budget Campaign, I was taken aback by her self-described circumstances.

Several days later, I read several letters to the editor that attacked Ashley and her apparently self-serving request for support of a policy that would benefit her directly.

While my first reaction to Ashley's letter was identical to those that took her to task, I now have to come to her defense in this matter.
