Support for Roggeman

Donald Hildmann has penned a "Letter to the Editor" to the Denver Post in response to George Merritt's April 10 story, "Council candidate indicted in 1981":
I cannot imagine what purpose your article served except to sully the character of a really good man, Mark Roggeman. This article dealt with an incident that happened 26 years ago. Charges were eventually dismissed. What really happened is that Mark was trying to save a girl's life. Letters she had written to her parents showed she was on the verge of suicide. Mark helped to locate her. I know Mark Roggeman to be a compassionate, honest person who can be counted on to take action in tough circumstances. West Denver has tough problems. That is exactly the kind of person I want as my city councilman.
