Re “Marks is best for the Assembly” (Letters, May 18): The letter writer said The Modesto Bee is endorsing Cindy Marks for Assembly! Actually, The Bee endorsed Virginia Madueno and mentioned Ms. Marks as a “back-up.” I agree with The Bee, Madueno is the best candidate in the race and she is the only one who is truthful, experienced and well equipped to be our Assemblyperson.
A 13-year-old girl who would have bee a freshman at Modesto High later this summer was killed outside her home early Monday. Her brother was wounded trying to shield her, family members say. Deke Farrow/jfarrow@modbee
