No push polling on Whidbey by Rep. Bailey camp

This is in response to the letter from Ms. Georgia Gardner that was posted in the Saturday, May 26 edition of the Whidbey News-Times. She stated in the letter that she had received a “push poll” phone call asking a question about Senator Haugen’s use of transportation funds to pay for campaign expenses. She further alluded that Barbara Bailey may have been responsible for it.

First of all, we were as surprised as anyone about the call. Second, we would never authorize a call of that type. They serve no purpose other than to agitate people and detract from the real issues facing us. And we all know there are plenty of issues to debate and keep us occupied on a professional level.
