ELECTION: Connelly’s campaign tactics are despicable

I find the majority of Jack Connelly’s state Senate campaign pieces utterly despicable. One can only hope that the voters of the 27th District recognize half-truths as well as out-and-out misrepresentations when they see them.

As a lifelong voter, I have never seen such a negative local campaign. I find it very discouraging that anyone running for public office would base a campaign on such false information and smear tactics. By his actions, Connelly has shown himself to be unfit to hold public office.
