ELECTION RANCOR AND MALICE IN OUR MIDST
It will be hard for anyone not to remember this election. The election rancor and display of malice that has bombarded us on a daily basis by many of the candidates, and those supporting or opposing ballot measures, has been destructive if not disgusting. The disrespect shown the American people will not be forgotten soon.
VENTURA IS NO EXCEPTION
We are disappointed to report that 40% of the “No on Measure O” street signs that were placed in the last month have been stolen and taken down. We do not know who but we know why.
It is one thing for individuals or groups of individuals to disagree with ballot measures and to make every effort to convey their message to the voters. That is what our republic is about and that is why we enjoy the right of free speech; however, those who claim “their” free speech and then deny it to others just because they disagree deserve universal contempt.
The No on Measure “O” signs will be replaced. Regardless of how you vote we ask that if you see anyone destroying or removing political signs for any candidate or any measure that you report it to us and/or the police department. It is a crime in this state to remove or destroy a political campaign signs.
