We forwarded this letter to the Patch in response to their article about the Town Hall tapes.  We are hopeful, but doubtful that they will print it.  Our research shows that the Patch often reports in this fashion.  Kelly Campbell was the exception but to the best of our knowledge no longer reports for the […]

Many mailings were sent out against Elizabeth Black by William Spencer’s Campaign.  All are misleading in some way.  The reference to headache’s was a quote that is attributed to another Huntington BOE member, and has nothing to do with Elizabeth Black.  To depict a woman popping out of cupcakes and making reference to sucking is tasteless at […]
