Pavley Fights Deceptive Coalition of Big Money
October 4, 2012 -
A deceptive coalition of large corporate interests has just purchased nearly $600,000 in TV advertising to oppose me in the 27th State Senate District race.
The money is being funneled through a group called California Senior Advocates League," which does not in any way represent the interests of seniors.
A recent article by Ventura County Star reporter Timm Herdt describes the group as phony and deceptive.
We knew special interests like the oil and tobacco companies would be propping up my opponent. They are working to defeat me because they want a vote they can rely on in the state senate. They know that my vote will never belong to them because it belongs to my conscience and my constituents.
I am not going to take the negative campaigning against me personally because it is not about me. It is about us. It is about our shared agenda to offer every child a quality public education, foster an economy that gives people of all backgrounds the opportunity to succeed, invest in a clean energy economy, and preserve our natural treasures for future generations.
We have the power to overcome those who believe elections can be bought. Please take a moment to sign up to volunteer or share this message with your friends.
