The race for state Senator in the 26th Legislative District has been overrun by attack ads, but there is a clear difference between the two sides.
Ads attacking Sen. Nathan Schlicher have targeted his votes and his positions on issues. For example, his votes in favor of higher taxes and raising more revenue.
On the other side, ads attacking Rep. Jan Angel directly target her character and intelligence. They claim she doesn’t read bills before signing them, when she not only reads bills thoroughly but keeps a detailed record of how and why she voted a certain way.
Angel has spent years working hard for her family and her community, takes pride in representing her constituents and has reached across party lines to do so. She is strong, well-spoken and a role model for many young women in our community, including myself, and she has left her opponent grasping at straws.
When Schlicher’s attacks against Angel’s record were unsuccessful, they decided to go after her intelligence. Their campaign has become desperate, smearing her character instead of looking at the facts.
Elect someone who cares about every person in the 26th District, not just winning elections. Vote Jan Angel for state Senate.
