Nasty threats

Dear Editor:

I’m not a very outspoken person. But I am sick and tired of hearing about the “bullying” tactics that Vallario is using in his campaign. I am proud of the way my husband ran his campaign. I am proud of the person my husband is and that he didn’t need to “bully” anyone to get a vote. I have heard of a couple of upsetting situations that I feel I need to speak out about.

I am tired of hearing how Vallario treats other people. Without naming any businesses, I have heard that Vallario, or someone close to Vallario, threatened two business owners that if they (the business) didn’t take his opponents (Tom Dalessandri’s) signs down they would “make sure” no one would ever come into those businesses again. That person didn’t just call once, but three times to one of the businesses.

It doesn’t really matter who it was, what matters is that this is America and its wrong. We were given the right to vote for anyone we choose. This goes for business owners too. It is their right to put political signs at their businesses if they choose. If people don’t agree with the business owner it is their individual right to not do business there. It’s wrong and uncalled for to call and threaten people who don’t believe what you believe. Vallario, or whoever did it, should be ashamed of themselves. Is Vallario afraid of the potential outcome? He should be – people have had enough. It’s time to elect someone as sheriff who has good morals, family values and ethics. And can provide the safety and security to the county. I am pleased with my husband’s choice to join and support Tom Dalessandri in Tom’s run for Sheriff.
