Dear Mr. O'Neill and Mr. Spano,
Today I read BJ Nathanson's letter to the Pacifica Tribune, and she points out that both of you have gone out of your way to name Kathy Meeh as one of your endorsements within your official campaign literature.
In addition, Mr. Spano, you've gone so far as to adopt the name of the blog that Ms. Meeh co-manages, Fix Pacifica, as your central campaign slogan, and you have proudly referenced this connection on your Facebook site.
Kathy Meeh is co-administrator of the Fix Pacifica blog and has, with the unfortunate passing of former City Council member Jim Vreeland, posted inflammatory comments such as:
"This article is a story from Riptide about deceased Jim Vreeland, and they don't seem to want to talk about him, (and really, neither do we)."
"And, again, how much respect do you expect for someone dead or alive that works, or worked, so hard to bankrupt this city."
"My personal opinion is that Vreeland was kind of a smooth, smiley faced rat."
Sadly, there are many, many more comments proffered by Ms. Meeh in a similar tone about a great number of subjects posted on her blog. I think it can safely be said that her voice is not one of moderation or respect.
QUESTIONS FOR EACH OF YOU:
1. Why do you list Kathy Meeh among your endorsements?
2. What are your thoughts about Kathy Meeh's opinions as expressed on her blog -- was it precisely the nature of her opinions that caused you to seek her endorsement?
3. Do you approve or disapprove of the general attitude and tone of Fix Pacifica, the blog that Kathy Meeh co-manages?
