Disappointed in National Night Out coverage

Editor, Manteca Bulletin

This last Tuesday night August 6, 2013 was the annual National Night Out.  I always thought that this event was to show the bad guys that our neighborhood was united to combat the bad guys. I know that our neighborhood and several other neighborhoods put on this event to show our support for this event.

However, on Wednesday morning when I opened the Manteca Bulletin, it seems that only Del Webb community was actively participating.  Several articles and pictures were describing the activities at Del Webb, great for them but I think a little more spreading the news of the other neighborhoods and what they were doing would have been more a fair assessment of all the action of the night.

Most of us putting on these events are long time residents of Manteca and are proud of what we have and what we are doing. I think a more complete coverage of these events would be greatly appreciated by those putting them on.

In closing, I would like to thank the one SHARP unit, the one SAFE unit, the one Police Explorer unit and the one police K-9 unit that stopped by our event.  We greatly appreciated that.

I thank you for your time and I sincerely hope that next year’s event gets a more uniform coverage.
