Dr. Kimberly Ho is proving that she is anything but timid in her quest to unseat one of the two sitting Westminster city council members: Sergio Contreras and Diana Carey.
The first volley – a giant 12 x 13 postcard mailer – that depicted Contreras and Carey as “reckless and dangerous” landed in mailboxes last Saturday. I suspect this is to neutralize any claim from the Westminster Police Officers Association that the two incumbents are strong on public safety. As of date, the WPOA have spent approximately $20,000 in positive mailers supporting Contreras and Carey.
The second volley – a 9 x 12 postcard mailer – that further questioned the “law and order” record of Contreras and Carey. It is quite clever for the Ho campaign to turn Westminster crime statistics and the repeal of a local ordinance which prohibited registered sex offenders from entering city parks against the incumbents. This mailer arrived yesterday.
Between the two incumbents, Sergio Contreras does have the resources to respond to the attacks. Diana Carey, I suspect, will also have some form of response to this as she recently loaned her campaign an additional $12,000.
Just another 13 days to go…
