Saturday's Letters to the Editor

<b>Too much TV?</b>

EDITOR: Please let me see if I read this right? "Big Government: It equals less freedom. Forty-seven unelected czars make laws, and U.N. forces are being trained to go door to door to remove our guns" ("Enough change?", Letters, Tuesday) Poor Jan MacInnis. Perhaps eliminating conservative radio and TV would be a good thing.

<b>Quality of quantity?</b>

EDITOR: The district elections issue — Measure Q in Santa Rosa — is too important to become a casualty of slogans and fuzzy math.

If I am one of 10,000 people voting in a district election, my vote counts much more than when I am only one of 70,000 people voting in a citywide race for several seats. In government, quantity is no substitute for quality.

Further, I am most likely to get to know the candidates in a district election. The quality of my vote is likely to be far better when I can choose between candidates whom I have met and who live nearby.

Santa Rosa's present election system seems haphazard to me. I support Measure Q.
