Spare the patronizing

Dear Editor:Although I do agree that we, as voters, should be informed about whichever candidate is running, I do no appreciate the implication that Ms. Frometa's condescending "lecture" took. ("Informed Voters," Letters to the Editor, 8/16/12) In it she seems to imply that we, the Downey Hispanic population, are too stupid or too lazy to research whom we are voting for, so we'll just vote for the Hispanic last name. We know, as the responsible voters that we are, that we will research, we will ask questions and we will vote for the candidate who is best qualified to run our city, regardless of their race. We just don't need anybody patronizing us. A.P. Garcia Downey
