Ladies & Gentlemen, My Name Is Carl Anderton and I Owe My Opponent An Apology
Last night voters experienced something never seen in a local campaign before.
A mailer was sent out last week on behalf of Carl Anderton that was not very kind towards Delegate Norm Conway. Mr. Anderton had absolutely NOTHING to do with the mailer and had absolutely no knowledge it had been mailed.
Once Mr. Anderton saw the material he was appalled. Rather then putting it aside or ignoring it, even though these forums are very limited in precious time, Mr. Anderton took it upon himself to take up his entire opening statement to personally apologize to Mr. Conway on behalf of the republican party.
He explained how he had nothing to do with it and that he spent a lot of time on the phone with the republican party expressing his disgust with the piece. He went on to say, needless to say I highly doubt I'll be receiving a Christmas Card from them this year.
All that being said, my hat is tipped to you Mr. Anderton, that was a very classy thing to do.
