I wanted to respond to Mark Cromas’s statement in a Feb. 3 letter to the editor that Imlay City does not want or need the progressive liberal ideas and values of the city of Troy.

Imlay City is a community filled with diversity which includes religion, race, political affiliation and personal values This area was built by people from all walks of life that contributed their time and talent which resulted in what our community represents.

We welcome all individuals who choose this area to make it their home. Even those from Troy.
