Kudos to Hagerstown for proposed smoking ban

To the editor:

I am a longtime conservative Republican and business owner. I do, however, support smoking bans in public places such as offices, bars and restaurants, and also outdoors such as beaches and parks.

Tobacco smoke can greatly bother nonsmoking families and others, even at a surprisingly good distance. Smoking and the resulting accumulation of unsightly and disgusting cigarette butts on the grounds of these areas should indeed be banned.

Congratulations to Hagerstown for moving ahead on the proposed parks and playgrounds smoking ban.
