Letter to the editor: Mudslinging getting worse

This year's political campaigning is absolutely sickening.

Every day we are inundated with flyers about one of the candidates. Every other evening we are called about how we are going to vote.

At this point in the campaign, I really think we should have a candidate who would be absolutely loyal, can't tell a lie and loves people — namely my dog, who unfortunately passed over the Rainbow Bridge.

I don't know where all this mudslinging has come from, but there is no way anyone in our house will vote for a mudslinger — even if that person was originally my choice.

This week I received a letter from an incumbent candidate who has never contacted us previously to ask our opinion about anything.

Every year the mudslinging gets worse but no one bothers to tell us what they would like to do in Santa Fe.

This needs to stop.

Candidates should tell us what they want to see accomplished and not throw mud. I am sick of the whole thing.

Why should folks vote, if these are our best choices?
