Regarding “A woman knits, a board member is voted out as Ferguson Civilian Review Board meets” (Aug. 7): After reading the article about the problems facing the Ferguson Civilian Review Board as well as the poor attendance of one of their members, they might consider replacing Nader Abde with Angelique Kidd. She appears to be the only citizen who cares enough about the issues to attend every meeting.
