How disappointing that our local politics has become so nasty!
It used to be that we could all agree to disagree if we had a difference of opinion and remain civil to each other.
Some of the opponents to Measure U resorted to name calling, conspiracy theories and calls for grand jury investigations. How petty! This childish pettiness has carried over to the upcoming election for Town Council.
Jennifer Collins has been personally vilified by certain blogs with name calling, out right lies and attacks on her family and marriage. Her only sin, as far as I can see, is that she supported Measure U.
She supported Measure U because it was the only option presented that would pay for the sewer system that we desperately need as well as other vital services needed in our community. Good for Jennifer!
She cared enough about the future of this community to step out and do something rather than sit back and write poison pen articles.
I have known Jennifer for several years and am impressed with her professionalism, integrity, energy, sense of humor and her desire to serve this community.
Jennifer’s motive in running for Town Council is to be involved in making this town a thriving, economically viable community now and in the future. She wants to be a part of positive solutions to ensure that this town does not die.
In my opinion, she will make a fantastic council member. I would encourage everyone to keep this election about the issues rather than childish name calling. Let’s respect each other’s right to have a different opinion from our own and stop the childish name calling and character assassination! Let’s treat each other with respect and vote for the candidate you feel will work the hardest for this town.
