Ads that misinform

Dear Editor:Recent attack ads against my campaign for Colorado State Senate contained substantial misinformation. The advertisements were mailed to local residents and were on the radio. They were created by the Trailhead Group, supporters of my opponent, Lew Entz, and were intended to cast doubt on my character and on my performance as your representative on the University of Colorado Board of Regents.Specifically, the ads wrongly claimed that I had wasted taxpayer dollars on expensive hotel rooms. This isn’t true, and now in an effort to set the record straight, Patricia Hayes, the Republican chair of the University of Colorado Board of Regents has prepared a statement regarding the true facts. Although Regent Hayes and I don’t share the same political party, we do share the belief that members of your community deserve accurate, honest information so they can choose their next State Senator wisely. Regent Hayes’ letter appears below.Gail SchwartzUniversity of Colorado Board of RegentsCandidate for Colorado State Senate District 5
