Bailey should be ashamed of mailers | Letters

We have reached the last straw at our home. We have again received nasty mail from Barbara Bailey. What has happened? She has sold her soul. At the beginning of the campaign season we found a few “nasty politics” mailers from her, and got angry enough to avoid all of the political process.

Barbara Bailey already has a job and has apparently been recruited to push Mary Margaret Haugen out, no matter what she has to do.

If you want a job, your ethics and morals should be determining your behavior. Her mailings speak volumes.

Not one word describes Bailey’s ability, past successes, future plans or goals. The entire card is laced with photos of Mary Margaret and pieces of things she has said, taken out of context. The message is that she doesn’t listen. If Barbara Bailey wants to help the GOP take-over state government to reduce taxes, just say so! Those of us that would like to have appropriate services want to pay our taxes, and in fact are very upset about property taxes going down. It has to come from someplace.

Mary Margaret Haugen has been the most involved leader/politician in our area. She has responded to me and many others I know, each and every time we have reached out to her. I have called and written over the years, and I have always received a thoughtful response, even if it was not what I wanted to hear. I respect the fact that she represents all of us. She has always listened. Please don’t let a “Koster-style” campaign with untruths and nasty mailings sway your vote. Mary Margaret deserves more for her years of service. She deserves our votes. Bailey should be ashamed.
