Re "Greuel calls 2 top foes liars," Feb. 21

The negative turn that the Los Angeles mayor's race has taken is heartbreaking. City Controller Wendy Greuel is my candidate, but the field includes several others with the integrity and intelligence to make great mayors, giving our city the kind of proactive, focused leadership that we sorely need. One will win, but must the others emerge from this contest bruised and enemies?

Is there no way for an electoral contest — especially when the political differences among the candidates are relatively minor — to be waged without the kind of acrimony that alienates voters and sullies the democratic process?
