Dear Loveland Voters,
Four candidates running for Loveland city council-- Brent Zuch, Rob Weisgerber, Dave Bednar and Ted Phelps proclaimed that they are Republican endorsed. Yes, they were endorsed by the Loveland Republic Club. Did you know that Brent Zuch is the president of the club and that Weisgerber, Bednar and Phelps are also members of this "club". Isn't that convenient and self serving???
These guys take credit for everything so it is apropos that they should endorse themselves!!!
I am a Republican and the majority of Loveland voters vote Republican. I never hear of this group except around election time when they try to pull a sleight of hand and pass out a pink slip on election day telling you that you should vote for the republican endorsed candidates (just because you are Republican and obviously can't make your own decision based on facts and qualifications.) I foolishly think this is supposed to be a non partisan race (when you look at the ballot you will note there is no designation behind any of the candidates names).
What matters to me AND what should matter to all voters is whether the candidate will vote for OUR best interests NOT whether the candidate votes a particular party line or feels compelled to vote as a body to keep that endorsement.
The other 3 candidates --Linda Cox, Pam Gross and Barry Kuhn--are ALL Republicans. Are they any lesser Republicans in belief or ideals or goals for the city of Loveland just because they didn't endorse themselves?? I don't think so!
As a Registered Republican I am insulted by these cheap tactics obviously designed to sway votes. IGNORE the mail outs and on Election Day, ignore the pink slip, because this so-called "republican endorsement" is meaningless. Don't be taken in by these guys. Remember they endorsed themselves.
