The Supervisors’ race is heating up!
Below is the text of an email Supervisorial candidate Richard Holober sent out to supporters today. If anyone has the actual piece of hit mail he is talking about, please scan it and send it along…
Holober is mad about something (or he wants us to think he’s mad about something) but without the piece, it’s hard to figure out what the heck is going on.——-
Yesterday, I received a piece of campaign literature that attacked Gina Papan. I first learned about it when it arrived in my mailbox.
This mailer was sent by an independent political action committee. Because the mailer also discussed my candidacy, some voters might mistakenly believe it was sent by my campaign. It was not.
My campaign mail, phone banks and precinct walks are focused on my record and my plans to help San Mateo County. We are not discussing any other candidates.
I have no control over the behavior of others acting without my knowledge. I don’t agree with these tactics and I regret they decided to engage in this negative campaigning. I also expect that there will be independent groups supporting my opponents who may attack me as our campaign continues to gain traction with the voters.
Federal and state law permits this type of campaign activity by businesses, unions and others who operate without the knowledge of any candidate. While there is no legal way to stop this activity, voters are entitled to know who is responsible for the campaign literature they receive. I believe we need much stronger campaign laws to require very prominent disclosure of the names of the funders of mailers of this sort.
My campaign will not engage in this type of activity and it is regrettable it has happened. I hope voters will focus on the issues facing San Mateo County, rather than being distracted by negative campaigning.
