Brad Malamud, San Clemente
In the Sept. 20-26 edition of the San Clemente Times, Mr. Smith and Ms. Baker hurled personal attacks in their letters to the editor. I prefer to stay with issues. Mr. Smith’s sole argument is “the last lawyer we had on City Council…wanted to pave over Open Space.” Ms. Baker argues “three (council)members…are listening” and district councilmembers will make selfish decisions.
They do not dispute that Talega, RSC, Forster Ranch, Marblehead and North Beach residents have not been represented and that Councilmembers Chris Hamm, Kathy Ward, Tim Brown and former Councilmember Wayne Eggleston do not represent everyone.
If district elections are approved, local communities will elect local councilmembers. You have a choice of neighbor representation. District elections make sense, unless you want the same moneyed interests to retain control of our city.
