Enough is enough! We’ve had it with malignant attack ads coming at us from all sides.

Yesterday we returned home to find a flier blaming Nalbert Tero, a Democratic candidate for state representative, for allowing welfare abuse and fraud, with an innuendo that he somehow is connected to terrorism. They left out the part about him not being in office yet.

We understand that politics is now considered to be a blood sport, but this comes with consequences. Which of our promising young citizens would want to run for office knowing they’d be subjected to such fabrications? Especially after a candidate has made every effort to offer positive solutions to real problems that face our state.

It is disturbing that these ads come from state organizations without the authorization of a candidate. Now more than ever, we need to support candidates based on their innovative and optimistic ideas, not on negative, ambiguous attack ads.
