No doubt Rhodesia Ransom’s campaign has turned desperate.
The most recent sign of desperation is a letter to the editor signed by a fellow named Bob Young, critical of Bob Elliott (“Council seat shouldn’t just be stepping stone,” May 4 Tracy Press.
One wonders, is this the same Bob Young who gave $500 to Rhodesia Ransom on Feb. 15 of this year? A quick check of the online reports on the Registrar of Voters website finds a donor with the same name who lives in Tracy and lists his occupation as “retired.”
In a classic example of the “the pot calling the kettle,” Young criticizes Elliott’s decision to leave his post on the City Council. One might observe that his candidate, Ransom, must abandon her city planning commissioner position to seek the supervisor’s chair. Perhaps Young has overlooked that fact.
Rather than throwing rocks at her opponents, Ransom’s campaign should stick to trying to promote a positive agenda, as Elliott has.
• Editor’s note: Mary Park is the treasurer for the Elliott for Supervisor 2012 committee, according to campaign finance documents filed with the Registrar of Voters.
