Letter: Fed up with negative political ads by Dona Damon
We are all aware everyone is fed up with election ads when the TV stations admit they are getting complaints. I can only assume both parties have the same script writers. One party, doesn’t matter, Republican or Democrat spouts their statistics and the next ad is the opposite party with the same numbers. Someone is lying. I think both are, and what’s the point?
Does our average voter have the reasoning power of the first grader? They are telling me the mayor has the sole authority to raise taxes? That the mayor is responsible for low numbers in our graduating classes? That last statement was dropped when it was announced the “National Teacher of the Year” was a young lady from Milwaukee! Wouldn’t it be wonderful to see a positive ad instead of “I did this and he did that,” over and over and over?
