False Rumor

Apparently, for reasons unknown, several democrats approached Elisa Ball and told her that I was running for 6th Ward Alderman in an attempt to block her from getting the Conservative line.

Allow me to set the record straight.

I am not, nor have I been, nor will I be a candidate for Alderman or any other office in 2013.

It has also gotten back to me that these same Democrats have been spreading false rumors about Republicans running primaries against certain legislators.  Those rumors are also untrue.  It would seem attempts are being made to sew discord amongst Republicans and Conservatives.  It is childish and should stop.

I do intend to find out exactly which person or persons started this false rumor about me.  When/If  I determine the guilty party, I intend to confront he or she and demand an explanation.

I think the democrats need to deal with their own discord in their party. Leave the other parties alone. Just because you all cannot get along doesn't mean the rest of us have to go down that path.

Thank you for your kind words.

Sad to consider that your statement about truth being absent from an election is in itself the truth.

Rich, don't pay attention to rumors. They are from those that like to act they have an inside track to all that going on. Most of the time they don't have a clue.

Does Ball even still live in her ward?

My understanding is that she now lives in an apartment in Ward 6 on South Manor Avenue.
