Letter: Palumbo doesn’t represent District 1 values

In response to candidate Guy Palumbo’s assertion that he shares the values of 1st Legislative District Democrats: (Sept. 8, “Republican 1st District senate candidate sees path to victory”.)

Palumbo could not earn the endorsement of paid members of the 1st Legislative District because he does not share the values as he states!

Here is another example of how money trumps democracy. Palumbo has a deep pocketbook, filled by moneyed supporters in Medina, etc.

He used character assassination against his opponent to convince voters to support him.

He is a supporter of charter schools, contrary to 1st District members’ position on this issue.

For Palumbo to assert that he shares the values of 1st District Democrats does not match with reality of a majority of active members.
