Three days before the April 9 election I received through email a flier from “Civility and Transparency in Government.” It was nothing but mudslinging against a candidate for village president and the type of repugnant behavior we are hoping to end in Bartlett. Anyone paying attention to the politics in Bartlett is also aware that this mudslinging began at a recent candidates forum by one of the other candidates.
What I found particularly disturbing about the mailing is that, like Twitter and other anonymous platforms, there is no accountability by this group to reveal their identities or agenda(s). I can only hope the other recipients also recognized this dirty politics tactic. “Civility and Transparency”? Not from this group.
