Ferrer is an asset

It has been saddening and disturbing to learn of the recent racial insults and harassment directed at Alvin Ferrer and his family.

Dr. Ferrer has taken on the business risks of operating Cambria Drug and Gift, our town’s only pharmacy, which provides a crucial service to its residents. In addition to taking on the business at a time when the demands upon it were formidable after the closing of the other pharmacy, he managed to weather the first months while simultaneously bringing several major improvements to the store and its operations. He has also pulled together a competent and helpful staff.

Dr. Ferrer and his family are true assets to our community, while the people who have insulted them and caused them grief are losers.

Welcome, Dr. Ferrer. May your tenure in Cambria be a long and happy one.
