Letter From Don Herbelin

It seems that about this time of year, thoughts turn to the tragic turn of events on Sept 11, 2001; and prejudices arise with hateful spite towards people who are of a different ethnicity than the “good ole boy network,” the “wasp” or white, anglo, saxon, protestant. Election time is rapidly approaching and there are a few people of different ethnic backgrounds who are seeking public service in the city of Santa Clara. Give them consideration when going to the polls or submitting your absentee ballot.

They may have better ideas and more purpose than the current and repetitive slate of councilmembers, school district board members and bottom feeders.
