Editor, the Advocate:
There has been a very interesting discussion of who to vote for in the District 5 election. But it is very simple once you speak of real ethics, integrity and principals. Dr. Young is supported by the special interest of Victoria through thousands of dollars in campaign donations for a position that represents almost 70 percent of the minority and underprivileged population. And according to election records, he has never voted in a city election. Mr. Truman has run for office three times now and should know the rules strictly enforced by the Texas Ethics Commission. Yet he has missed campaign report deadlines three times in a row, which is a serious state violation. Now, Mr. Soliz has been criticized for having a family member currently on the council, which is perfectly legal. He has proven to be trustworthy and responsible with the citizen's taxes and fought hard against political favoritism.
Therefore, the choice is clear. I would ask you to vote Gabriel Soliz for District 5 because he is for the citizens of District 5.
Clara Ramos, Victoria
