Pete Favazza, candidate for Kitsap County coroner, recently sent out a most disturbing mailer, which seeks to justify his entire campaign on the basis of one unfortunate incident which took place almost 13 years ago.
The Kitsap County Democratic Party executive committee has expressed concern over this piece, as it is our understanding that the family members involved were not consulted prior to the publication and distribution of this campaign literature.
We find it most deplorable that Favazza would attempt to capitalize on personal tragedy to further his own political gain. We do not support his candidacy, and he has not been approved or endorsed by the Kitsap County Democratic Party.
(Olson is chairman of the Kitsap County Democratic Party.)
