Signs we need!
After two weeks to simmer down from ongoing county campaign incidents, I feel level enough to make a, I hope, coherent comment.
After viewing a letter to the editor in early October praising Carol Whitmore's achievements, I couldn't help but react to the phrase: "Her campaign signs are everywhere." Yes, they are.
However, Terri Wonder's signs are being systematically removed, in the middle of the night. Also going away is the support of our Democratic process and the absence of fair play!
Ms. Wonder's campaign signs have either been vandalized or stolen in too many numbers at a time to be seen as a random acts by individuals who merely disagree with her.
While not minding the absence of her opponent's signs, I would hope Ms. Whitmore is appalled at this type of insidious behavior as it puts her in a bad light. I would not think she condones this kind of mind-set -- thuggish behavior and lack of moral ethics, the kind of stuff we all certainly don't want to see more of.
Terri Wonder, a researcher, keeps herself well informed and thinks things through. Her ideas for the future of this county are sound and responsible and in the long run should prove beneficial to the future of Manatee County and its people. Ms. Wonder is behind us. We should all rally together and get behind and support her on Nov. 4.
