Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
Many of us are disappointed in the choices we have been given when we vote for our next president. I don’t know if either candidate has what this country needs. Luckily, when it comes to our local candidates, we have better choices.
The thing I would like to see in someone who holds office is integrity. Webster’s defines integrity as “ moral soundness; honesty; freedom from corrupting influence or motive”. Only one local candidate has shown this type of campaign. Ben Cantu is that candidate.
For years he has warned us of the developers’ influence in the council and how it can burden the general population when they are allowed to write off millions of dollars in payments to the city. We didn’t listen and it continues to happen. So we continue to build new homes, but the infrastructure suffers.
It takes someone on the council with no ties to developers, with the good of the city in mind, to end this. It takes someone with integrity. Ben Cantu has integrity and we need him on the Manteca City Council.
