Mudslinging has no place in Morris political races

Published: Friday, March 8, 2013 5:00 a.m. CDT

I have recently learned of the circulation of a political letter from the “Grundy County Young Republicans” personally attacking mayoral candidate John Brooks.

Like many people in the community, I consider such campaign tactics to be negative and distasteful. It is unfortunate that the Young Republicans would support Mr. Muffler in this manner.

Last week, I also learned that Mr. Brooks’ campaign was making negative statements about Mr. Muffler. This back and forth mudslinging reminds me of cafeteria food fights and raises the obvious question whether either of these men have the maturity to be mayor.

On top of everything, we have Mr. Bojovic pouring gas on the fire.

We live in a nice friendly community. Let’s keep it that way.
