To the editor;
With the Surrey election looming quickly around the corner, I’ve been noticing mayoral signs popping up everywhere and I find one of them particularly distasteful. Mrs. Rasode has a slogan on one of her signs that reads “One Tough Mother,” and her arms are folded, only accentuating the arrogance of that comment.
Personally, as a real mother, I find this offensive. Who is she reaching out to for votes? ‘Gangstas’, perhaps? So many things come to mind in seeing those words. That slogan is derivative of what? One Tough Mudder? Or One Tough Mother Effer? One tough anything is too tough for me.
Words are powerful tools. Choose the right ones and show some respect for the real mothers of Surrey.
The last thing Surrey needs is a mayor with the gangsta mentality. I’m tired of the same old games and rhetoric. Surrey needs solid, sound, practical and proven leadership. We need Doug McCallum back! To coin a phrase, may the best man win.
