Think, Then Vote

RECEIVED Tue., May 8, 2012

Dear Editor,
    Re: “Split Endorsement a Cop-Out: 'Grow a Pair',” [Postmarks, May 4]: Please inform Mr. David Lundstedt that his voting rights are hereby revoked on the basis that he is a puppet of the media unable to make informed decisions for himself, instead choosing whatever candidate he is told to vote for. We now know that Mr. Lundstedt will vote for Mike Martinez, Bill Spelman, and Sheryl Cole, not because he knows what their positions merit over the other candidates, but because he was told to do so by the Chronicle.
    The fact is that both mayoral candidates endorsed by the Chronicle will do great work for our city if elected. The real question for Mr. Lundstedt is: Which one will work for or against the causes he cares about? Apparently, the only cause that matters to him is being on the same side as the Chronicle's editors.
    Mr. Lundstedt, if you can't think for yourself, you should lose your right to vote.
    Thank you, Chronicle editors for giving us the tools with which to make informed choices. See you at the polls!
