I went to my mail box this afternoon and found your huge three-color mailer. It didn’t motivate me to vote for Cary Kennedy. It made me wonder why, in last night’s debate, she refused to call you out on misleading and negative ads.
The fact that Cary Kennedy, who promised a clean campaign, would not see how negative your mailer actually is, convinces me that she is NOT the right leader for Colorado. Leaders don’t profit off of lies and innuendo.
Jared Polis started a charter school. That is true. It was a school for immigrant children who needed a little help because of language and cultural barriers. Please explain to me how that “aligns him with conservatives” who want to separate mothers from their kids at the border and deport them all? Don’t bother. It doesn’t.
What bothers me most is you took things from 10 or more years ago to try to tell me that is how Jared Polis is thinking today or would govern tomorrow. I’ve read his plan for education, and honestly it makes more sense to me than anything that I’ve seen from Teachers for Kennedy.
What pissed me off the most is your comment “now he’s spending millions hoping you’ll forget it.” He is spending his own money on his campaign, that is true. But he isn’t hoping I’ll forget anything. I’ve met him on several occasions. I’ve asked him questions. He has always answered the questions candidly.
I can’t say that about Cary Kennedy, who seems to be clueless about the impacts of oil and gas development in Colorado, or the growing body of work that equates health issues in communities near that development with exposure to toxic chemicals in the air, soil and water.
I was supporting Jared Polis before I got your mailer. I always thought that Cary Kennedy would be a good second choice. Her acceptance of your support changes all of that. I will not vote for a person who accepts the support of salacious negative advertising. Yes, I know that she cannot coordinate with you. But she had the opportunity to condemn your ad in a debate and she refused to do so, just as she delayed talking to environmentalists in Longmont after she was endorsed by Anadarko Salazar. Sheesh. Even Frackenlooper said he was disappointed in that ad.
You blew it for your candidate. I do believe our actions define us. Your actions prove that you are nasty and irresponsible, and by extension that your candidate does not deserve my support. #JaredPolis4Gov#CaryKennedy4rehabilitation
