Unwilling to let multiple attacks on them go unanswered, council members Sergio Contreras and Diana Carey took turn firing back at Dr. Kimberly Ho.
Sergio Contreras went first with this 8.5 x 11 postcard mailer that attacked Kimberly Ho on her “less than perfect” attendance record as a planning commissioner. This mailer landed late last week.
Diana Carey then followed up with this 8.5 x 11 postcard mailer that questioned the legitimacy of Kimberly Ho’s doctorate degree. Having the Doctor or “Dr.” title in front of one’s name does not necessarily mean he or she is an M.D. or a physician. A person with a Ph.D (Doctor of Philosy) or a Pharm.D (Doctor of Pharmacy) can also be called a “Dr. Kimberly”. A clever piece nonetheless as deception is part of the political game. This mailer arrived yesterday.
The design for these two mailers have some resemblance. It could have been generated from the same consultant and graphic designer.
Contreras and Carey are not allies. In fact, they don’t like each other very much. Since their election to the city council in 2012, Carey joined the Lou Correa machine while Contreras aligned himself with Mayor Tri Ta.
Political survival brought these two Democrats together.
Just eight more days to go…
