Letter to the Editor Writer says tickets were stolen in Miss Kempton Fair contest

Thursday, September 5, 2013 by The Press in Opinion

To The Editor:

I am writing in response to the controversy over the Kempton Fair queen.

In a previous letter to the editor (The Press, Aug. 29) there were some details that need to be clarified.

The first issue I would like to address is it states "One of the contestants was unhappy with the results and allegedly started a campaign to discredit the winner." This is so untrue.

It was never to discredit the winner. The issue was two of the contestants' people's choice ticket containers were broken into and tickets were stolen.
