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: MORASCO’S OP ED WAS TONE DEAF

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 […]
