I'm With Tristan
To the Editor:
I am voting for Tristan Rader for Lakewood Council at Large.
Forty years ago I was one of the co-founders of the Lakewood Democratic Club. The organizers of the Club felt that Lakewood was facing a crossroad and progressive Democrats had to organize in order to put our agenda out to the public and elect Democrats to Lakewood offices. In that effort I think we have been largely successful to the benefit of Lakewood.
Today I think we still face some significant issues such as a massive giveaway of City assets and thinly disguised discrimantory laws such as breed specific ordinances.
I have watched Tristan Rader on the campaign trail. He first of all recognizes these kinds of issues. Secondly, he has logically thought them through with a fresh look and a respectful recognition of our past.
It's time that we in Lakewood catch up with our future again!
I'm with Charlie and I'm voting for Tristan Rader.
