A couple of days ago, I received this letter, allegedly from six out of the eight serving councillors, on behalf of “the Devaney committee to re-elect.” Devaney herself being one of the others. The other one endorsed her challenger, Shapiro. The allegations aren’t all that clear, but the rambling tone of the letter itself is unclear and unprofessional, which made me wonder if this was some sort of forgery. It struck me as unusual that sitting elected officials would participate in this type of communication, and while I hesitated to give it more circulation, I felt this bizarre tactic itself is newsworthy. Any reactions?
