We strongly object to The Times' statement (Metro Digest, Jan. 22) that the successful recent Bell Gardens recall campaign "was largely funded by absentee landlords." The implication intended by the line is even more disturbing. We are each candidates for the City Council positions in the March 10 election. (Two of us are renters; only one is a landlord.) We have been active in the Bell Gardens No Rezoning Committee, which was formed to protest the city's removal of low-cost rental housing, and other abusive conduct of the City Council.

Less than a year ago the victorious new City Council members of Bell Gardens--ordinary folks who overnight became more potent than they had ever dreamed--confidently pushed through a throng of well-wishers. The winners in a historic landslide election the week before were surrounded by proud members of the Latino political Establishment--state senators and assembly members who had never heard of Frank B. Duran, Josefina Macias, Rodolfo Garcia or George T. Deitch before the election.
