What in the world is happening in Oakdale? Our family has lived here for almost 30 years and I have never seen such nasty tactics being used in a local election. Large signs, both misleading and untrue, are being put up all over town demeaning Frank Clark. Unidentified phone calls are being received by Frank and his wife that are obscene and threatening. More than 100 of Frank's signs, including two on my property, have been removed and destroyed. Who is responsible for this?
Frank's opponent disclaims any knowledge of these activities, though he is "appreciative" ("Signs' origin remains a mystery," Oct. 11, Page B-2). There is something inherently wrong when, during an election, a group of people can spend several thousand dollars trying to influence the results, take away people's rights to place a candidate's sign in their yard and never make their identity known.
What is their agenda? Frank Clark has conducted a positive campaign, publicly expressed his views and goals for the Oakdale Irrigation District, and, despite claims by his opponent and the mystery people, will not sell our water to San Francisco.
