Name-calling no substitute for ideas

I recently saw James Powers quoted in The Daily Star as having accused Rep. Kosmer of grandstanding, an intent to deceive the public, and a wish to be a hero. Apparently this referred to his proposed plan for saving the Manor. 

I hope these citations were incorrect, but if they were not, I would like to suggest that if you differ with the proposed plan, it would be more fitting to put forward your position in a thoughtful manner. County reps, as well as other persons, of course, should not mistake name-calling for a valid argument, which might be supported by other persons (those who elect their county reps, for example). I am surprised and disappointed that you do not know this.
