Tracy residents urged to vote in recall

To the editor:

I just wanted to write an open letter to the citizens of Tracy who we approached to sign a petition for recall because there were several who would not sign for fear of reprisals or repercussions. When you vote it is private. It is also a privilege and a responsibility we have as Americans.

This a privilege of a free and democratic government which our forefathers envisioned and which a lot of our brave citizens and military people have died for to keep us a free democratic government. A yes vote is to recall Tony Peterson and remove him from his position on the council. A no vote would be to not remove him and let him continue to be on the council.

Please vote your conscience for a better city with our city leaders following all the ordinances and statutes that govern our city. Please vote Tuesday, Feb. 13.
