Strong opinions about ‘Who’s electable in the City of Compton?’; some voices reasonable, others rancorous

Letters regarding the commentary, “Who’s electable in the City of Compton?” published Feb. 11, 2017.

“I loved the article you wrote. Thank you for taking the lead and “putting it out there” as the saying goes. For far too long we have been victims of the “Business As Usual, nepotism, cronyism, or hedonism” and also the lack of moral integrity, independence, creativity, humility, pragmatism. After speaking with you [in the past] confirmed my concerns about having to deal with the spiritual warfare that underlies most of the issues that we currently have in the city. For 16 years I have waited for this election. The time is now.”

Tomas Carlos, Compton

 

“This article (“Who’s electable in the City of Compton?” Feb. 11, 2017), is funny and insulting. Funny in the sense you have no idea what is going on in the city of Compton, and insulting for the same reason. Why are you not reaching out to the community to see what events are planned within the community, could it be you don’t know who to reach out to?”

Gilda Blueford, Compton

 

“The Compton Herald has eyes on the city council meetings every week. Why are you so argumentative. You’re one of the fractious elements that hurts the city. Apparently you haven’t read the Herald. Know what you’re talking about before spouting. If you’d read it, you would know our “All Aboard”  calendar sums up what’s going on in the city every month. And, understand what you read, Blueford; the “reach” was to candidates, who apparently don’t know how to use a newspaper to advance their message.”

Jarrette Fellows Jr., Compton Herald publisher/editor

 

“I am glad that you find me to be [a] fractious element that hurts (my) city, since there are many who would disagree with you, candidates included. You have just strengthened my resolve. And I can “spout off” anytime I choose under the Constitution of the United States, I cannot however shout fire in a crowded room.”

Gilda Blueford, Compton

 

“Spout you may, Ms. Blueford, but not to me. If you find the Compton Herald “funny and insulting,” don’t read it. That is your choice, too. There are 100,000 other readers per month across America who respect the Compton Herald.”

Jarrette Fellows Jr., Compton Herald publisher/editor
