Letter to the Editor:

When I see the campaign signs of Tom McClintock purposefully placed directly in front of the signs of his opponent for 4th Congressional District, Charlie Brown, in numerous locations around my town, I gather the following information about his supporters:

1. They flout common rules of polite discourse, civility, and courtesy.

2. They approve of blocking the free speech of those with whom they disagree.

3. They believe that deceit and guile are necessary for their candidate to prevail.

I will vote for Charlie Brown for U.S. congress.

~ Eve Werner, Truckee
