As some of you may know, last night an article concerning campaign contributions was published on a local website. I was mentioned briefly in the article in a parenthetical. I submitted the comment below to the website several hours ago, but that comment is still "awaiting moderation." Therefore, I am providing it here.
"Good morning. Because I am mentioned in this article in a parenthetical, I’d like to clarify a couple of things so everyone knows my views. First, I have not solicited or received any contributions, large or small, but am running a grassroots campaign. Second, I have been a vocal proponent of greater public participation in the GM/MEH expansion project, seehttp://www.reitinger.org/search/label/rfp, and wrote a letter to the editor about it. http://fcnp.com/…/letters-to-the-editor-city-should-involv…/. Best wishes, Philip Reitinger"
