On Flyers, Attacks, and Civility

Recently I learned of a flyer that had been distributed to some homes in the city. Tamara from the Pioneer reached out and asked for comment but we did not have time to connect last night. I let her know that I had not yet seen the flyer and asked her to send it to me which she did.

While I support everyone’s right to express themselves in whatever manner they see fit, at times that occurs in ways that I personally do not approve of. To be clear, I do not condone or support these tactics.  

We should be able to discuss any differences we may have civilly without resorting to personal attacks.  If voters are interested in learning about me, or any of the other candidates running this November, I encourage them to do their own research, review each candidate’s website to learn more, ask questions, and make their own decisions.

My goal throughout this campaign has been to be as clear as possible regarding my positions and how we should move forward as a city. This is why I write in detail at my campaign website. My preference is that residents support candidates of their choosing that best represents their interests. If that is me, then that is fantastic. If it is not, I respect people’s choices and that is the process.  I wish all the candidates the best of luck this November.
