Dear Editor -
I'm sure everyone is by now aware that Rep. McClintock's Town Hall was a good event - spirited questions and discussions, loud at times, but all sides were well represented and, even when not agreeing, were appreciative of the time Rep. McClintock spent.
But sadly, outside things were not as good. 5 tires on 4 cars were slashed; all the cars belonged to progressives, including one woman who had just become a US Citizen (and a shout out to Lou Cordero of Speedy Lube who immediately offered to replace all the tires, first at a discount, and then at no cost due to the donations that were received - he will cover the difference).
And continuing the stain on our town - the house on 140 that has progressive signs and slogans in its windows - had two more windows broken the night of the Town Hall (rocks through them). A couple weeks ago one of its windows was broken; now three are broken. (The owner says the donations given to cover the first window should cover the new windows as well.)
Shame to those who slice tires and break windows when they disagree with someone's political positions. But a big shout out to heroes such as Lou Cordero and the people who gave donations in both cases; they are the best of Mariposa.
If anyone knows anything about the tire slashing or the windows, please contact the CHP (209-966-3656) or the local sheriff (Anonymous Tip Line 209-966-3476).
