Thank you for your article “Election complaints increase this year.’ I witnessed the altercation between longtime resident Roberto Gomez and a woman with the nametag “Martha” outside the polling place at City Hall. Mr. Gomez was being beaten about the face and shoulders by the aforementioned “Martha.”

I contacted the police and they were there immediately. Bravo to our police department, however, I am surprised that Mr. Gomez was cited, too. I value our community and the rights we all enjoy. Watching one person physically attack another, is not something I want to see in our future.
