Mark Musselwhite make Clean Campaign Pledge, asks other candidates to do the same
Takes down all advertising mentioning his opponents and urges Hawkins to
do the same
) – This past week saw an unfortunate negative turn in the State Senate campaign, as Lee Hawkins hurled charges at Mark Musselwhite and Musselwhite responded forcefully to those charges. GAINESVILLE
In response to this week, Mark Musselwhite has made a unilateral decision to take down all advertising mentioning his opponents and has urged the other candidates to join him in ending all campaign advertising that mentions their opponents.
“I have gone completely positive this July 4th weekend,” said Musselwhite. “While I felt it necessary to defend my record, I also think a person leads by their actions. I believe it is time to get back to campaigning strictly on our own platforms.”
Musselwhite asked his opponents, Jeff Williams and Lee Hawkins, to join him in immediately ending all advertising that mentions their opponents and “staying strictly positive” through the end of the campaign in either July or August (depending on whether a runoff is required).
Musselwhite asked his opponents to make a decision about this so-called “Clean Campaign Pledge” by close of the day Tuesday, July 4.
“I have already spoken with Lee Hawkins about this, and I will be calling Jeff Williams as well. The Clean Campaign Pledge is simple: if any ad, mailpiece, or other item mentions or refers to your opponent, then it is not permissible,” said Musselwhite. “I hope my opponents will join me in this pledge.”
When asked what he will do if an opponent refuses to sign the Pledge, Musselwhite was clear.
“I will stick by this pledge if my opponents will,” said Musselwhite. “But if they don’t, I will aggressively defend my service and my reputation. There is no reason it must come to that, but if it does I will return to defending my good name.”
