I am writing in response to the article by Thadeus Greenson ("Blog Jammin'," March 20) writing about Fortuna wanting political signs up earlier than 30 days before an election, so that there can be "an opportunity to let political signs shape their (the voters') decisions."
I laughed out loud when I read this and then realized this is probably true. Whoever has the most money has the most signs. And we see these signs everywhere and when we get in the polling booth, we tend to vote for the familiar name because we have not taken the time to understand why this person is running for office and if they are an incumbent, we vote for them because we know their name and assume they are not doing any harm. Please don't assume when voting in the June primaries for the county supervisors. Educate yourselves. What exactly is going on? Are we on a dangerous track as stated in a letter to the editor recently? Please be aware that the one with the most signs may not be the one who truly has the people's interests at heart.
