I read with interest your Nov. 7 online article “Gatto, Liu, Schiff handily hold onto their seats.” This voter was not surprised at all that Mike Gatto won by such a large margin. He has passed some great legislation, and is thoughtful, conscientious and articulate. When I email him, he writes me back.

Is it possible that you helped create the Greg Krikorian monster and thus the negative campaigning by giving Krikorian so much coverage? You and Krikorian were perhaps the only ones who thought he had a chance against Assemblyman Mike Gatto.
