    Romer’s attack ad smacks of “do/say anything to get elected.” Aren’t we all disgusted with politicians who lie and distort? We are better than that.

  2. female business owner says:

    stating truth and fact that happen to reflect negatively on a candidate is not “going negative”. Each has strengths and weaknesses and pointing out only the weaknesses does not “negative campaigning” make.

    You don’t have to like Romer or his campaign strategy to vote for him. Simply compare the experience/resumes and the higher qualified candidate is clear. This shoudl be a skills-based interview for Denver’s CEO not about whom has the best interviewing skills… SUBSTANCE OVER FORM PEOPLE!
