9th District Race

March 18, 2001

* Re your March 12 article on the 9th District City Council race: I was appalled to read about candidate Woody Fleming's racist and inflammatory remarks concerning candidate Jan Perry's husband. Surely it is incumbent on candidates as well as reporters to raise the level of debate. With the overwhelmingly complicated issues facing the 9th District, it is crucial that we move beyond personal attacks and the rehashing of 2-year-old, dismissed lawsuits.

Since it's at the core of our city, I'm sure we would all like to know the candidates' visions and solutions for improving the 9th District, which contains the greatest extremes of wealth and poverty in Los Angeles.
