Letter from L. Alan Gray

Anyone who thinks there is race discrimination within the ranks of Santa Clara City government is wrong. Just go down to City Hall some weekday morning and look at the employees. People from all walks of life, cultures and religions work for the city. And they serve the citizens well.

And since we’re on the subject of discrimination, what about salary discrimination? Most City employees are salaried double or triple what city council members are paid.

Let’s show more respect and appreciation for our mayor and city council members who work full time while earning part-time salaries.

So to all you race baiters and divisive winers get off your high horse and exercise the muscles between your ears.
