Letter writer Jim Pitts asserts that as a “female Hispanic Republican,” County Clerk Mary Louise Garcia is “a pioneering example of the new diversity in American politics.”

Let the candidate speak only to the demands of the office and the fit of earned credentials thereto, and rise above superficialities, thus the public is served.
