Dear Billy T and Somerville/Medford News Weekly Speakup Line,
How many people already in Somerville got the phone call this past weekend claiming to be a survey company? They ask the basic survey questions of how they would vote in the upcoming election and save the best question for last which is “If Joe Curtatone was in this election would you vote for him?”
Let me tell you Bill firsthand, I can tell you right now that this is coming directly from the Cassesso and the Ballantyne campaigns because they are shivering right now that you are going to win this election hands down. What they are trying to determine is if a last minute endorsement from Crooked Joe Curtatone will help them or not. In other words they are playing Mutt and Jeff. Both Cassesso and Ballantyne are Joe Curtatone‘s puppets and Joe and Cassesso’s husband Peter Miller and Ballantyne‘s husband Rich Neilson want to still control the city once Joe’s term expires in January. And I should know because this past weekend I defected from one of their campaigns to join yours. The proof is in the pudding. Joe put Cassesso and Ballantyne in the race to split your votes.
So warn your readers not to be fooled by this sneaky political tactic that Curtatone, Cassesso and Ballantyne are pulling the wool over their eyes.
