Letters to the Editor: Election season should have clean campaigns

To the editor:

2010 is an election year for many city, county and state offices. Many candidates have filed to run against incumbents.

I would like to issue a challenge to all parties seeking election to run clean campaigns.

In some elections, candidates use fault-finding, mud-slinging tactics, even lawsuits in a desperate attempt to get votes. Voters in Oldham County are weary of this type of politics.

A candidate should promote his or her qualifications, experience and knowledge of the office they seek, not attack the opponent.

So candidates, I challenge you to roll up your sleeves, work hard and run clean campaigns.
