Last night I participated in the last forum for my race for city council. Sharing here the public comments that I made about the attack ads sent out against my opponent by an independent committee.
I did not like them when they were used against me in the primary and I don’t like them used against my opponent.
I am upset, angry, frustrated and wish they would stop. I do not condone them nor was I able to give any input into their use.
These are Independent expenditures, which means by law a candidate must have absolutely no contact with those sending them.
Anyone can create an Independent Expenditure, but, as a candidate, I cannot have interaction with the group creating and mailing them.
Make no mistake, I do not condone these type of ads and I wish they would stop.
