Endorsing Slocum, downtown street signs

To the editor:

I am happy to endorse Linda Slocum for Oberlin city council. I have worked with her for a number of years and have developed great respect for her honesty, integrity, thoughtfulness, and fairness. That she is willing to bring her skills to the service of the community is a matter for rejoicing and celebration. Please give her your thanks through your vote.

While I have the editorial “ear,” can I also mention the puzzling absence of street signs at the crucial intersection of Lorain and Main? Inhabitants know it, of course, but it puzzles visitors, especially if you suggest meeting them there, which is how it came to my notice.
