Ted Raper: Huge difference

March 25, 2014 

Regarding the March 22 news article “ Tillis: My college doesn’t matter”: Thom Tillis does not seem to understand why people are upset about his education credentials. He was perfectly correct when he said it should not matter which college he attended, but what does matter is misrepresenting the actual school.

I attended both University of Maryland at College Park and University College. UMD is a prestigious school. University College is mostly an evening class, mostly adult education school. A huge difference!

Perhaps we should be concerned about what else Tillis has misrepresented in his years of public service.
