Fire petition

Dear Editor:
My husband and I were approached at our home by someone requesting we sign a petition for the fire department.
The woman stated that she worked for the fire department. I knew this was a lie. The woman said she had a list of registered voters for our neighborhood and my name was bold-faced on the list which meant that I already signed the petition.
I told her that after reading an article in the Downey paper, I feel like I was mislead into signing the petition and I wanted my name removed from it. She said she couldn’t do that. She was very rude and ignorant.
It bothers me that I got bamboozled into signing a petition under false pretenses.
Unfortunately, due to the misleading nature of these petitioners, I will not be signing any more petitions and will politely ask them to leave my property.
