City Election Hits New Low

Letters

BY DENNIS ADAMS SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY APR 25, 2015

The Sarasota County Democratic Party has downgraded the City Commission runoff election to a new low with a recent attack ad on Eileen Normile. I received the oversized mailer yesterday. It alleges Normile is misleading voters with a dirty campaign of lies and hidden agendas.  There is a picture of a mud-covered Sarasota skyline and the typical good picture horrible picture lineup of the candidates. The problem is the ad does not provide a single fact or shred of evidence for its claims. It is a complete fiction.

The Democratic Party is doing a disservice to voters with these distortions in this important election. Critical decisions will be made during the next two years on homelessness, development, the bay front and fiscal policies that will have long lasting affects on our city. The focus of the campaign should be on competence and leadership not smears and distortions. 

I typically vote Democratic but I am embarrassed by the Democratic Party's antics and its candidate.

Dennis Adams, Sarasota
