Will a Teamster hijack this election? | Letters

Voting is in high gear right now, and it’s obvious there are some shenanigans going on from some of the candidates.

Has anyone else noticed that Anthony Murrietta, city council candidate, placed the majority of his signs the day the ballots dropped and that the signs are placed illegally?

They are all over the city in very prominent places.

That’s a high-impact strategy that is not only illegal, but is being allowed to perpetuate because the city isn’t enforcing its own sign code. They are allowing the signs to stay up, even though they directly impact two other candidates’ campaigns.

And, who is Murrietta anyway? Does anyone even know him? All we know is he’s a Teamster. Other than that, he hasn’t attended a single city council meeting (that I’m aware of), he didn’t bother to go to the Municipal League endorsement interview, he didn’t participate in the Red, White and Blues Fourth of July celebration, and no one I know has ever heard of him.

Yet, he has enough money to drop a high-end mail piece on the eve of ballots coming out, and to place these signs illegally all over the city.

It’s like he’s trying to steal the election. I hope others can see what’s going on. We don’t need a person who tries to hijack an election and isn’t involved coming in and taking over. We have enough problems.
