Statement re Grinnell Attack Ads
We have almost reached the end of our campaign for Mayor, and I am proud of the work we have done together and the race we have run. Every vote counts, and at this point, we are in the lead. So of course our Republican opponent has released another television attack ad.
But Rick Grinnell’s new attack on my character is not only false, it’s dead wrong.
Rick accuses me of not telling the truth when I said my family business hadn’t taken any new cases for the City of Tucson. Of course I was telling the truth; our firm has not taken a new case from the City in the last year or two. We have given legal advice – but legal advice is not a case.
Furthermore, I have already given up my ownership interest in my family business, and I have said that if elected, I will give up the practice of law.
I am that serious about doing the right thing and avoiding any conflict - or even the appearance of conflict - as Tucson’s next mayor. So these sleazy attacks are unfounded.
Rick Grinnell should be ashamed of himself for attacking my character. He knows that my family business has not earned a single dime of the $230 million spent by Rio Nuevo – zero.
Rick knows this because he is a Rio Nuevo Board Member. He was even the Treasurer!
