Kellar blatantly misrepresented

My comments are directed to two letters to the editor, Feb. 17, written by Richard Kratz (“Kellar damaging city’s image”) and Lois Eisenberg (“Two sides to every story”).

Kratz wrote that City Councilman Bob Kellar declared “that he is ‘a proud racist.’”

Anyone who has been paying attention knows Kratz blatantly misrepresented Kellar’s statement.

Kratz argued that Kellar is preventing “new business” from coming to the Santa Clarita Valley. Kellar was speaking out against illegal immigration, so the only businesses which would not come to our valley because of Kellar’s stand against illegal immigration would be ones interested in locating in a city which favored illegal immigrants and their exploitation, and we don’t need them.

Kratz claimed Kellar is “damaging the economy” in the city.

The unemployment rate in Santa Clarita is about 7.5 percent, compared to double-digit unemployment in the city and county of Los Angeles.

The national unemployment rate was 10.2 percent when Kellar made his statement against illegal immigration, and has since dropped to 9.7 percent. Keep up the good work, Kellar.

After The Signal pledged to objectively report both sides of the Kellar story and in the same breath wrote that his statement was “infamous” (worthy of a bad or evil reputation and detestable) one would have thought The Signal would apologize and state it meant to say Kellar’s statement was “widely publicized.”

But no, it publishes a letter by self-proclaimed “bleeding-heart liberal” Lois Eisenberg praising The Signal for its blundering editorial.
