I know election season means negative ads as much as springtime means pollen. Though I don’t own a TV, so rarely see the ads myself, I’m nonetheless grateful to Patsy Keever and Timothy Murphy for pledging to run “mud-free” campaigns. I know it can get dirty in D.C. (or Congress, that is), but I want to know about real issues, specific ideas, envisioned plans and underlying values of the people seeking to represent the citizens of the 10th Congressional District.
I hope Mayor Bellamy will sign the clean campaign pledge too so that voters can learn about each candidate based on honest facts and records of service.
