The Real Mesa Issues Sets the Record Straight

Well, I am quite honored to be mentioned in the Sonoran Alliance blog today, one of the best, if not the best political blog in the State. Who knew this hoopla over the copycat site would lead to some additional focus on this site and Mesa politics in general.

I think I need to set the record straight. Clearly, the other Mesa Issues is an anti-Scott Smith site. They have posted 3 posts, 2 of which slam Smith directly. Plus, thats not even to mention the LDS themes that were originally posted and then erased.

However, I don't think that I have been "stumping" for Scott Smith or any other candidate as the blog entry insinuates. The fact of the matter is that I haven't really made up my mind in the race. Sure, there is a lot more to criticize about the longstanding councilmembers, but that doesn't mean I line up directly with Smith. I have been attempting to call an even contest and point out the victories and flaws of all the candidates.

In fact, many people have told me that my post, Breaking Down the Mesa Mayor's Race, is one of the most fair assessements of the stregths and weaknesses of the candidates.

EDIT: Well, it looks like the other guys are Pro-Griswold/Anti-Smith.

I think you have called a very fair race and have been equally critical to all candidates involved. If anyone has followed my postings, I lean toward Smith because I'm fed up with the current slate of leaders we have, which I feel is a general consensus with many in the city. You've passed on many opportunity to slam the others and praise Smith and have not done so which is a testament to the coolness of your blog. Keep it up.
