"Swift Boating" Guy Houston
Original post made by Hal Bailey, another community, on May 21, 2008
We are seeing the most disgusting form of "Swift Boating" in the defamation of Guy Houston as a District 3 Supervisor Candidate. Aggregated politics in Contra Costa County is attempting to protect a Board of Supervisors that is serving special interests and abusing communities and neighborhoods.
The mailings and website accesses being provided are presenting distortions and indictments that do not have any basis in fact about the services of Guy Houston within his commercial activities, as an assembly member, or as the former Mayor of Dublin.
www.truthaboutguyhouston.com is a regional political smear campaign to distract voters from fair evaluation of all three candidates for District 3 Supervisor. Such "Swift Boating" simply wants you to ignore the performance of the current Contra Costa County Board of Supervisors and accept the abuses that group has delivered during the past 3+ years.
Vote your choice but be sure you have fully and fairly evaluated each candidate.
