Your response to the Sun propaganda was spot on. In the 2004 election cycle the Sun would print no opinion that criticized any candidate that was an incumbent. They printed every letter that came in making derogatory comments about Mr. Guzman and Mr. Dodd. In fact Dodd was hardly mentioned if it would take space away from slamming Mr. Guzman.
It appears the incumbents, Ferre, and hopefully Garcia, will use their connections in the Sun again in their campaigns to fight off a well deserved recall. They can discuss no issue because they have no idea what the issues are unless it's to fumble through the agenda and pose for pictures in the chamber rag. It is evident when a citizen comes into the Council meetings and addresses Ferre or Garcia with a direct question. Tom Schwab will answer because they can't. I believe the biggest fear Ferre has is to be placed in a position where she would have to answer a question concerning City business. She can't. Being Mayor to her is a social position.
The article is without a doubt written by a "Friend of Ferre" campaign person because if they had done any research they would have found that the recalls are not a "just for the heck of it".
The Recalls are serious. The recalls are a result of years of research of the mismanagement and untruths by the Council and Tom Schwab. It is time to put a stop to the 'Good Ol boy politics" that have made the friends of Ferre wealthy at the expense of the City. Here is a challenge. Council women Ferre and Garcia make your income tax returns public from the time you came on to the Council to present. Won't happen if they have something to hide.
