Councilman should be ashamed for remarks

Editor, the Advocate:
I was appalled to read Tom Halepaska's comments in Wednesday's paper concerning Councilwoman Josephine Soliz. He said she was an "embarrassment" to the council. Why? Because she doesn't always agree with the "good ole boys"? If you're not ashamed of yourself, I am embarrassed for you, Mr. Halepaska.
Thank you to Clara Ramos and the other citizens and council members who spoke up about the withdrawal of one candidate and the possible effect on the runoff election. The council needs to understand that we are paying attention. We expect all of their actions to be open and honest.
