Shame on Sandy Weidner. There are rules to political campaigning and she has broken one of the cardinal ones — do not openly lie about your opponent. As someone who has been active in politics for over 20 years, Weidner knows where the line is and she crossed it.
Cory Mason has stated in debates that he is opposed to building the arena. Alderwoman Weidner should know this; she was sitting only a few feet away from him when he said it. For Weidner to maintain that Rep. Mason is unclear on his position on the arena is a flat-out lie.
We need a person with integrity in the mayor’s office. With her ads in the paper, Weidner proves she is not that person.
