Attn: Sedona press, friends and supporters
Sedona, AZ (October 10, 2014) – I have made a decision to end my campaign for election to the Sedona city council.
In the past several months there is a long list of incidents and aggressive,
vindictive, hateful bulling actions against me, my family and my business.
These are far outside the possibility of coincidence. I have a whole list
of names and even video of persons involved, including my opponent. I
thought that being on city council would be a matter of simple public
service but it’s obvious that Sedona city councilors and Sedona Fire Board
members have much more influence than I ever considered. Some say it’s
just politics but not for me. I have a responsibility to my family
business and my staff. They are my priority and focus, not local politics.
I want people to know that I am not making this announcement as a ploy to
get votes because I can tell you I won’t take the oath of office to serve
even if I get the most votes. The direction that this campaign has taken
is not good and I am not going to run on that negative level. I want to
thank my many friends and supporters. I have learned a lot during the
campaign and apologize for letting their hopes down.
Thank you and sincerely
If I had “a long list of incidents and aggressive, vindictive, hateful bulling actions against me, my family and my business” that were “far outside the possibility of coincidence”, plus “a whole list of names and even video of persons involved, including my opponent”, I’d being going public with it and using that information against my opponent. I wouldn’t quit.
