Jozelle Smith and Fireworks

May 11, 1986

Those of us (and we were the majority) who voted for Jozelle Smith for councilwoman in Culver City feel betrayed by the trust we placed in her campaign promises to oppose the sale of so-called "safe and sane" fireworks in our city.

Councilman Ron Perkins was defeated because he favored the sale. At least the voters knew where he stood and voted against him.

But Smith sang a different tune during her campaign. She said she was not in favor of the sale of fireworks and the voters believed her and voted for her.

Her change of mind to continue the sale reveals that she is unfit for public office and is typical of politicians who will make favorable statements to win election and then renege on promises made to the voters.

We do not need persons like Smith to represent us. Jozelle Smith should be recalled.
