Letters to the Editor

Lincoln Daily News welcomes letters of appreciation, information and opinion on matters pertaining to the community. 
Controversial issues:
As a community we need to be able to talk openly about matters that affect the quality of our lives. The most effective and least offensive manner to get your point across is to stick to the issue and refrain from commenting on another person's opinion. Letters that deviate from focusing on the issue may be rejected or edited and marked as such.

Give Dr. Kottemann his position back

Send a link to a friend 

Editor's note: LDN has received no information on the reason for Dr. Kottemann's leave of absence. We encourage readers who value this doctor to keep sending your letters, but, please make your letter one of support for his reinstatement.

To the editor:

I am shocked to see that Dr. Kottemann has been put on leave from Family Medical. After I learned on what grounds this leave was based upon, I was even more appalled. This is ridiculous. Dr. Kottemann has been my doctor since I was a baby. The reason for firing Dr. Kottemann is selfish and arrogant on the administrators' part of Family Medical.

Dr. Kottemann is a veteran doctor that CANNOT be replaced. I as a patient demand that justice be done by giving Dr. Kottemann his position back.
