Examining Claims of Two Candidates

Examining Claims of Two Candidates

Editor, Surely after a round of gratuitous candidate bashing (“Political Briefs,” Oct. 10) the Indy is going to give equal time to actual rather than fabricated discrepancies in what Rob Zur Schmiede and Toni Iseman claim about their records.

Unclear Undercurrent in Candidate’s Statement

Unclear Undercurrent in Candidate’s Statement

Editor: I was surprised by Rob Zur Schmiede’s letter in the Sept. 19 issue of the Indy distancing himself from Village Laguna’s endorsement.

Endorsement Does Not Threaten Candidate’s Independence

Endorsement Does Not Threaten Candidate’s Independence

Editor, Rob Zur Schmiede is concerned that Village Laguna’s support of his candidacy along with Toni Iseman’s might be interpreted to mean that they were running as a slate. We want to clarify that our support does not create a slate. Village Laguna is recommending two candidates for Laguna voters to support. It does not […]
