Disgusting Hit Piece Against Tony Kranz

A disgusting hit piece arrived in my mailbox this weekend that could only be from Jerome Stocks and friends.

Shameful, Shocking and Distasteful. Though Expected (Considering the obvious source).

I was not happy to receive an expensive political mailer in my mailbox this past weekend attacking a respected leader in this community running for city council, Tony Kranz.

And not just because I voted for Tony. Because it disgusts me when politicians blame the other guy for problems they have, to confuse the voters.

After all, our mayor, Jerome Stocks, is known for his many displays of anger, confrontation, sarcasm, condescension and divisive language at city council meetings and elsewhere. Here is just one of the websites with evidence of this. Yet he attacks another candidate for his problem?

It's obvious that it could only be friends of Jerome Stocks or he himself using money from his out-of-town developer supporters who sent this out. Our little town of Encinitas does not need this level of spending on a campaign, nor the unneeded vitriol. And any candidate who thinks they need to attack their opponents to this extent is certainly not worthy of being voted back into office.

Goodbye Mr. Stocks!

I was also shocked to this this mailer. It was ridiculous. Whoever put out that mailer cleverly edited the picture to shown the demonstrator showing a sign with America. The sign said "Destroy America" If you have served this country and you are patriotic it it's hard to say nothing. I would have also probably done the same thing. Shame of them to publish this this fake medical report with no signature. I believe people in Encinitas are smarter than that. Tomorrow let show the door to Mr Stocks and tell him he is not welcomed. Ciao Mr Stocks.
