Letters to the Editor

Letter to the Editor: WHY NO RIGHTWING COLUMN?

Editor, Times-Advocate: Why do you publish “Leaning to the Left” by Don Long without an acceptable right leaning columnist? More than half of us in North County would like to hear the other side as well. Better yet get a centrist columnist and give old Don the deep six! (Only figuratively) lol. RANDY MORRIS, Escondido * Editor:  Sorry to see […]

Letter to the Editor: WE NEED LEADERS NOT NANNIES

Editor, Times-Advocate: Escondido City Councilman Mike Morasco’s vote against placing a sales tax increase on the ballot isn’t a “… stand against raising taxes” as Councilman Morasco touts. It was instead an egotistical move to decide unilaterally what the voters need. While Councilman Morasco is steadfast in his belief that he speaks for, and knows the needs and desires, of […]

Letter to the Editor: PROTECT OUR RIGHT TO VOTE BY MAIL

Editor, Times-Advocate: This election is the most important in my lifetime — but this national crisis will make it difficult for many to participate in it. That’s why voting rights experts agree: Americans must be able to cast a ballot by mail to ensure that they can safely and securely vote this year. Trump and his cronies are wrong: Mail-in […]

Letter to the Editor: WHO ARE THE RACISTS HERE?

Editor, Times-Advocate:  I have just one question regarding the letters to the editor negatively referencing Council member Mike Morasco’s June 11 opinion piece: who are the racists here?  Two letters in the past two weeks have used the terms “white male” and “white, old, conservative-leaning constituents” to describe Mr. Morasco and his district membership.  May I remind the “open-minded,” “correct” […]

Letter to the Editor: Thank you EPD

Editor, Times-Advocate: Escondido Chief of Police, I would like to express my appreciation to you and your officers. I believe your presence is vital to our community’s well-being.   Byron Culbertson, Escondido

Letter to the Editor: MORASCO’S OP ED WAS TONE DEAF

Editor, Times-Advocate: Recently, Escondido council member Mike Morasco wrote an op-ed, and it was pretty tone-deaf, to say the least. Despite the pleasant experience that he and his white, old, conservative-leaning constituents have had with the Escondido Police Department, other people in this city, particularly people-of-color have not had the same cozy relationship with the cops. And the supposed “inappropriate” […]

Letter to the Editor: ESCONDIDO HAS A HISTORY OF RACISM

Editor, Times-Advocate: In response to Mike Morasco’s Op-Ed “Reform ideas based on sentiments, not facts” (June 11), I found it incredibly bad form for the Councilmember to seek to discredit his colleague, Olga Diaz for her remarks at the June 3rd organized event in remembrance of George Floyd.   I don’t recall seeing Morasco at the event, but I was proud […]

Letter to the Editor: EXCELLENT, WELL-WRITTEN OPINION PIECE

Editor, Times-Advocate:  We want to thank Escondido City Councilman, Mike Morasco, for his excellent, well-written opinion piece that appeared in the June 11 issue of The Times Advocate.  (If you haven’t read it, please do!)  In addition we want to take this opportunity to express our 100% support for the entire Escondido Police Department (EPD) and especially for the men […]

Letter to the Editor: PLEASE, HELP MOVE THIS PROJECT ALONG

Editor, Times-Advocate: KB Home and the City of Escondido have been unable to work together to allow construction to start on the Oak Creek development near Felicity Park.  We thought we were fortunate to purchase one of the first five homes to be sold in this development. KB Home sold the lot/home in August 2019 with the promise of having […]

Letter to the Editor: RENAME KIT CARSON PARK

Editor, Times-Advocate: These are changing social times where America is confronting its racist past. It is time for the city of Escondido to re-evaluate the name of Kit Carson. A park honoring this “Indian” killer stands in Escondido, but overlooked is the racist hatred this man carried against Native people.  Kit Carson led genocidal campaigns to wipe out Native tribes […]
