Before the primary, I received a mailer announcing the “Leadership Straw Poll” results from the NE Tarrant Tea Party, headquartered in Grapevine.

As I looked through it prior to disposal, I noted that the poll represented the opinions of six anonymous group “leaders.”

This made me wonder why six people have the audacity to think I would consider this kind of mailer.

Moreover, the “poll” of six unnamed persons did not favor state Rep. Diane Patrick or Peace Justice Mary Tom Cravens Curnutt. This made me think even less of the opinions expressed in the mailer.

I voted for Diane and Mary Tom because they are outstanding individuals, demonstrated exemplary leadership and understand the needs of our area.

Given the importance of this election, I sincerely hope Arlington voters would have cast their ballots without regard to the opinions of groups from elsewhere that could care less about our city.
