A vote for Sears

Dear Editor:This is to share with you and my fellow citizens in District 4 my thoughts about the person who I want to represent me on the City Council, such as: I want a female - preferably a mother - better yet if she's a grandmother; as well as a person who is closer to my age (needless to say, senior citizen category!), of which there are many of us in our fair city of Downey. As far as I can tell, there is only one person running who fits into all of the categories I mentioned. There is only person running for District 4 that has been supporting many organizations in my city for many years. To list just a few, and quoting from The Downey Patriot's Sept. 23 edition: "Warren High PTA, Downey Council PTA and PTA Helps and scholarships; Downey Rose Float Association; Soroptimist Club; Relay for Life cancer walk; Downey Emergency Preparedness Committee; Downey Parks and Recreation commissioner…" and many more! Frankly, she was very modest when she listed the organizations she has supported for many years. I've seen her many times at many other events (not listed above) that this lady was working her tush off doing whatever it took to get the job done. I've oftentimes wondered just how she does it all. My choice for District 4 is Lee Ann Sears, and I trust it will be yours! -- Bernice Stumps, Downey

Dear Editor: I'm ready for a more balanced City Council in Downey. We need a person with the city's best interest at heart, not someone using the job for networking with a business. We need a person that has spent many years volunteering for the betterment of the city of Downey. That's right, a person like you and me that has lived here for many years and loves this city. Lee Ann Sears will help bring the people of Downey to City Hall. Please vote; it's a privilege! -- Helen Burns, Downey
