Letter to the editor: The political process

As I drive around town, I see an abundance of political signs for the upcoming elections, and recognizing the names it appears that there are several local offices where there are multiple candidates who are qualified, and also some very clear choices in terms...

Letter: Sign the initiative to preserve San Benito County
