Letter to the Editor

Latino hindsight-election editorial is asinine  

A recent editorial published in a Toledo area newspaper titled, “2006 Election Lessons to be learned” was so short sighted and ignorant it actually makes the classic case of why self described, old guard Latino leaders have got to be replenished with new leadership.

I can only believe that the editorial published was to illustrate why Latinos need, more than ever, to develop a grassroots voter-turnout campaign and not to discourage our own gente from running for political office.

Have you ever heard whites or blacks tell each other to step down so the other one could possibly win because we’re short on voters? Don’t blame Bob Vásquez—blame your own gente for not voting or perhaps voting for either Vásquez or Lourdes Santiago into city council!

I’m sure that won’t register in that small hood where the brain is suppose to be, but the author should come out and apologize to Mr. Vásquez and try and use his/her penmanship for something productive—like the 2008 Presidential Election!
