Ferlita Strike Back With a Kneecapper

Wayne Garcia wrote a piece in Blurbex.com about the Ferlita vs Swanson Hillsborough County Commissioner race and the inaccurate negative campaigning by puppet Brad Swanson.

He noted that "Ferlita's campaign finally struck back in a mail piece titled, "Why is Brad Swanson running a negative campaign against Rose Ferlita?" In it, Ferlita uses Swanson's own quotes and admissions from the St. Petersburg Times about his lackluster college record and unspectacular employment record. "So here's his record: Asked to leave the University of Florida; In 7 years has held 4 different jobs; Never owned or operated a business. Now he wants to run a $3 billion budget.

Go Rose! I don't know why anyone would vote for Swanson to begin with.

I heard that his wife is an architect and hence has ties to...what else...developers just like the thousands of dollars pouring into the coffers from other developers trying to keep the commision approval oriented. Check out Mark Sharpe's contributions from real estate and developer interests even out of this county. They see to constitute the majority. SO who is running the county?
Swanson offers nothing and Ferlita has been doing a good job. Go Rose!
