Dear Mr. Heyward Robinson. I am an officer of Menlo Park Matters. You issued an hysterical press release regarding a so-called “slate mailer” we purchased which endorsed Lee Duboc, Mickie Winkler, and John Boyle, calling it a “scandal” and a “fake endorsement.”
- I assure you that Menlo Park Matters has enthusiastically endorsed Boyle, Duboc, and Winkler – even moreso after observing the kind of smear campaign you have run.
- I note that your shocking press release failed to mention that one of your endorsers, former councilmember Paul Collacchi, and former councilmember Steve Schmidt were endorsed by similar slate mailers during their campaigns, and that Ira Ruskins has appeared in one in the current election year.
- You also conveniently failed to mention that the mailer expressly stated on the front in capital letters that it was not an endorsement by any political party, that it contained a large photo on the cover depicting our esteemed Senator, Diane Feinstein, and inside contained the names of many major politicians in California.
Are you accusing them of scandal and fakery? Are you accusing Senator Feinstein? Mr. Robinson, do you have the ethics to run for Menlo Park City Council?
