EDITOR: When considering the issues surrounding the Serrano homeowners’ election, Julie Samrick’s article, “Serrano election marks turning point,” is a good starting point.

My vote is for Steve Ferry

EDITOR: I have known Steve Ferry for about three years and know him to be a man of great integrity. Being a veteran, I was interested in Steve’s views on the military.
