Readers React: Alex Johnson’s shameful campaign attacks on George McKenna

To the editor: I agree with Sandy Banks’ assessment of Alex Johnson’s attacks on George McKenna in their campaign for a seat on the L.A. Unified School District Board of Education. (“Quote’s context sheds better light on LAUSD candidate George McKenna,” Column, July 25)

I voted for Johnson in the primary. But after receiving his hit-piece mailer assaulting McKenna with a collection of carefully snipped phrases, I mailed it back to Johnson’s headquarters with my scrawled note that he actually had my vote but no longer did.

I hope some staffer showed him my message. I doubt that he saw it — or, judging by his horrible attacks, that he even cared.
