We do not reside in the city limits of Tracy, but we do have bested interest in the city and are concerned how the city is governed.
Quoting Larry Hite (“Political sign season heats up,” Aug. 20 Tracy Press): “I feel that by not doing my best to win this campaign, I would be letting a lot of sponsors and supporters down.”
We feel that his best should not include breaking the law.
Having run for council before, he should know the laws regarding posting campaign signs. Getting an OK from the city more than a month before the legal date is completely wrong. The right thing to do when he heard complaints would have been to remove the signs, but he chose otherwise, and his signs remain.
Our nation is built on the rule of law, and two wrongs to not make a right.
All candidates should be treated equally. Do you really want someone on your City Council making decisions that concern us all, who feels the laws do not apply to him?
Tracy has several honorable candidates running for City Council. We hope Tracy residents will make wise decisions in electing two new council members.
