In response to your article on April 25, “Public records requests cost city thousands”: Oh boo-hoo, Sandra (Edwards, city clerk). What did you think “public” meant when you took the job?
The Public Records Act is a means of keeping democracy alive. The problem here, as I see it, is that there weren’t more than three Tracy citizens listed in the subject article over the past seven months who were deeply concerned about who was doing what to Tracy and why.
Tracy’s entire future growth and development is being determined right now. Only three people in Tracy care enough to know how this is being done! Shame on the rest of us! Let’s get involved, citizens of Tracy!
Transparency and integrity should be a goal, not a problem to be solved, unless there are people in positions making decisions for Tracy who are not prepared to act with integrity at every level.
Bea Culton, Tracy
