To the editor:
Looks like the political mudslinging has kicked into high gear. I recently received a negative piece of mail full of lies and distortions from Rep. Wardlow and his partisan supporters attacking Laurie Halverson.
These types of attacks are all Rep. Wardlow has to run on, but don't believe the lies.
Though he likes to brag about turning our budget deficit into a surplus, the truth is Rep. Wardlow and the GOP have left a $4.5 billion deficit for the next legislature to deal with.
Despite his anti-tax pledge, the truth is Rep. Wardlow and the GOP voted to eliminate the Homestead Credit, eliminating direct property tax relief for small businesses and 95 percent of homeowners.
Lastly, and perhaps most damaging, Rep. Wardlow voted in favor of borrowing another $2.4 billion from our schools—nearly $3,000 per student!
Let’s vote for a candidate who values an honest discussion of the serious issues facing our state. Join me in voting for Laurie Halverson on Nov. 6.
