The following post card from Lakewood write-in candidate Paul Serwatka appeared in my mailbox this morning:
The text pledges, “Truth, Transparency & Accountability.” He asks that people vote for him alone.
Serwatka quotes incumbent Lakewood Village Trustee Gary Sexson as saying in his campaign piece,
“The Sportsplex development is currently a dead issue with no vote from the board planned.”
Serwatka then quotes Village President Erin Smith:
“Gary’s statement is misleading and I suggested that he word it differently. Based on my conversation with Gary, I understand that ‘Dead’ was Gary’s way of communicating the same message that we have communicated in the Village newsletter: that we do not YET have a redevelopment agreement that is ready for formal consideration.”
“Gary along with fellow trustees distributed these deceptive flyers.
“It’s time to vote for REAL transparency, not ‘wiggly words’ and deceit.”
