This past week members and friends were surprised to receive the first negative mailer we have seen in the local election. It seems the race must be very close and both candidates are now changing their tactics.
Members received the following mailer last week and found it very interesting. At the same time it came with more details differentiating the candidates for mayor on the backside of the direct mail piece.
The additional details are listed in the photo to the left. Residents must be asking themselves "does this portend of a new era in LO politics?" Only time will tell and lets see what happens over the next week.
During this week COLA LO members also received an email letter from Mayoral candidate Greg Macpherson which provided some unique insights into the race. The letter is reproduced below.
While members reviewed the text they noticed that the contact to assist Greg Macpherson had a (202) area code. The location of this code is Washington DC.
Are candidates for mayor now receiving partisan professional political advice and support? More details are sure to be forthcoming as the election proceeds toward the final outcome. Stay tuned as the city awaits additional efforts by the candidates and the community decides.
