On the night Martin Howrylak was late to his own Town Hall meeting with State Rep. opponent Mary Kerwin, Troy residents were subject to an immature robo-call wherein Martin accused Mary of refusing to sign a pledge to run a clean campaign.
He also submitted this op-ed to the Oakland Press, whining about her lack of response to his purported request.
Mary Kerwin had an answer for Martin in this op-ed.
Now, one need only look at the lifetime accomplishments of each candidate to see that Mrs. Kerwin is not only CLEARLY more experienced and capable of the job, she also has a legacy of service, volunteerism, activism and leadership that far surpasses that of Mr. Howrylak.
But putting all that aside, one could look ONLY at this campaign tactic to know who the obvious choice in this particular race should be.
Ask yourself -- with the history of grand-standing shenanigans that Martin Howrylak has, would YOU have accepted a letter from him at our home? A letter from your opponent sent in this fashion:
So what does Martin Howrylak decide to do with HIS campaign time? Slander Mrs. Kerwin. Create drama around this letter and her supposed refusal to run a clean campaign.
He put the photo on his campaign Facebook page -- Mrs. Kerwin's address included, by the way. *I* deleted that bit, as well as his...because MY PARENTS raised me properly. When I responded on that page to inquire if he felt this was the work of someone running a clean campaign, my comment was promptly deleted, and I am now banned from responding there.
Seems Martin doesn't like being called on his tricks. So we'll just put it HERE instead.
Let's plan a November surprise for Martin Howrylak. Let's deny him the chance to live on our tax dollars.
VOTE FOR INTEGRITY...and clean campaigning.
VOTE FOR MARY KERWIN -- State Representative.
