Whatever the election results turn out to be for our beloved little town I would like to put out a call for civility for all everyone in the community to embrace.
What an ugly, ugly mess this election run was. I mean, just gross and low class.
The sad thing is that most of the players involved are parents and grandparents. Yet, the behavior was despicable. The lying, the backstabbing, the anonymous comments and impersonations of candidates on the blogs. All very disturbing.
The deceptive mailers, the half truths and flat out lies were evil and immoral (they may have worked too which is truly depressing).
It has to stop. We can't let this be the path of Encinitas politics. We have to be better than this. The seething anger in this country towards anyone who disagrees or is different, it's seeping into our sleepy little beach town and it's going to destroy us.
Everyone take a deep breath, have a nice dinner, enjoy your family, take a hot shower to wash the filth out of your hair and get a good night's sleep. Let's start over in the morning.
We can all be better than this.
