Impeding the debate

EDITOR: I am responding to Judy Kennedy's letter in Monday's paper ("District elections"). As a former Santa Rosa City Council member who ran three times, I can assure our citizens that no candidate ever receives "tens of thousands of dollars" from any association or individual.

The city has strict campaign contribution limits, and they are carefully scrutinized since they are posted online for the public to see.

District elections have legitimate pros and cons, all worthy of debate. But slinging unfounded accusations doesn't further the debate. In fact it impedes the democratic process as we can clearly see in all levels of government today.
