So, once again, Jaimie Zielger, Peter Candland’s wanna be pit bull, is going after me.
When I sent out the pledge for all candidates to sign in late July, what I received back from Peter Candland was a letter questioning the validity of Advocates for the Rural Crescent. I sent a hard copy letter in response immediately. In fact, I was forced to send a hard copy to his campaign address as Mr. Candland did not have the common courtesy to include a direct e-mail or a phone number. Let me add, that a current campaign worker for him has known me for several years.
Here is what was what was said on the not so truthful blog:
The ONLY basis for Ann Wheeler’s claim Peter Candland does not support protecting the Rural Crescent is Candland’s decision not to sign the Rural Crescent Pledge authored by liberal activist Elena Schlossberg-Kunkel. Candland asked for more information from Schlossberg-Kunkel about the organization and the political agenda being advocated by her, but got no response.
But Candland then got smeared with the false claim that he did not support protecting the Rural Crescent.
First of all, I have never smeared Peter Candland, I have simply acknowledged those who signed the pledge and their commitment to the Rural Crescent.
