Equal Space for Candidates

Dear Editor,

The staff and news reported by the El Vaquero is well done and in good taste. I have one issue to take up with you and that is the almost one-half page photo of Vartan Gharpetian and his family on the back page of the El Vaquero. He is currently running for our board of trustees and this possibly can be construed as an endorsement by El Vaquero of his candidacy. I believe that a newspaper is supposed to be neutral in such matters and offer equal time (In this case an almost one-half page photo and article) for the other two candidates running for the board of trustees. I would appreciate that in your next issue that you provide equal consideration for Tony Tartaglia and Vahe Peroomian.

Thank you,
