Last week, several businesses received the following flyer, with Deborah Schwartz campaign materials, from an organization that does not exist, but LOOKS and SOUNDS like the Milpas Community Association:
The language in the flyer is meant to make you think this is from the MCA, and tries to capitalize on the hard work we have all done in this community to make the Milpas corridor a safe place for everyone. Do not be fooled! This group has no website, and we can find no record of their existence. It’s therefore a campaign tactic meant to confuse voters.
While it’s irritating that a campaign would try to fool voters this way, we know where this is coming from. A recent poll indicates 38% of likely voters would take the MCA’s recommendation ‘very seriously’ in deciding how to vote. Clearly, this campaign is trying to capitalize on that poll’s information.
To be clear, this did NOT come from the MCA, and we have NOT endorsed Deborah Schwartz.
