Dirty politics; shame on Therkildsen

By October 26, 2010




Saturday I received the usual handful of last minute campaign fliers. I was extremely upset at finding one from the Craig Therkildsen campaign. Prior to receiving it I had no real opinion of which sheriff’s candidate would be better. I believe political campaigns should be run on issues and qualifications, not distortions or insinuations.

To link Mr. D’Agostini to the Hells Angels is the kind of campaigning I have come to expect from national and state candidates but certainly not local. In my opinion the supporters mentioned in the flier, including the Mountain Democrat, should be ashamed they are associated with this type of campaigning.

If this is the kind of tactics Mr. Therkildsen approves of I’m really worried how he would manage such a powerful position of authority.
