TACOMA: Mailer seems to try to mislead voters

I have just received the slick, glossy and endorsement-filled mailer from the “Fix Tacoma Streets” campaign. The convenient placement of News Tribune quotes and logo led me to believe that this too was an endorsement of Proposition 1.

In reviewing past issues of the newspaper I have in fact found that The News Tribune has not endorsed this proposition but in fact editorialized that voters should reject Prop. 1. Tacomans who received this campaign mailing should be aware that the implied endorsement is misleading and does not represent the stance of the newspaper.
