I was preparing for bed and decided to take a look at today's mail. I received another campaign mailer Paid for By Better Sacramento Political Action Committee, major funding by Western Electrical Contractors Association, Inc. Good Government PAC, Mark Friedman and Frank Ramos.
The mailer has a photo of a pastor written next to him are the words:
Bonnie Pannell has disappointed us.
"All too often I have witnessed her stand in the way"
Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson is working hard to improve our community--- to create real jobs, grow economy, reform our stagnant government, and increase much needed public safety.
Sadly, our Mayor can't count on City Councilwoman Bonnie Pannell to listen honestly and without the influence of 'other interest." Instead of helping, all too often I have witnessed her stand in the way of progress.
I firnly believe that to move our great city and district forward, it's time for visionary new leadership.
signed Dr. Darryl B. Heath, Pastor.
The back of the mailer states:
BONNIE PANNELL HAS FAILED OUR COMMUNITY:
Voted to cut 82 police officers' jobs while hiring a new city manager for $300,000 a year. Sacramento Bee, 08-11-11
Asked, "why are we spending more money on thepolice department if we have the second highest crime rate in the state?" Sacramento Observer, 09-09-11
"While voting to cut public safety, Bonnie Pannell voted to pay a new city manager $305,000 plus a $150,000 bonus- making him the highest paid employee in Sacramento history."- Crime Victims United of California Advisory Board Member Sabrina Berhane
Bonnie Pannell "is stunningly tone-deaf...pay hikes for top bureaucrats ought to be off the table." Sacramento Bee, 12-18-10
Pannell told a citizen: 'Screw folks' constitutional rights." Sacramento News and Review 12-08-11
She even called a 61-year-old woman an "a**hole." Fox 40 News
The Sacramento Bee says Pannell is "Stunningly tone-deaf:"" While laying off workers and cutting services, she demanded big pay raises for two of Sacramento's highest paid bureaucrats, saying they were "underpaid."
Does this pastor live in our district? Is the church in our district?
The mailer fails to mention Councilmember Pannell is endorsed by the Sacramento Bee and Sacramento News & Review.
This is absolutely unbelievable. For a pastor to state "All to often I have witnessed her stand in the way" is unbelievable. I invite the pastor to come on this site and share all the times he has witnessed Pannell stand in the way. In the way of what?
Sadly, residents in District 8 can't count on a Pastor to see through deceit--unbelievable.
Williams is blessed. Councilmember Pannell decided to not fight dirty and send out mailers pulling all her quotes out of context.
Councilmember Bonnie Pannell has not disappointed me.
Dr. Darryl B. Heath, Pastor has disappointed me!- and without a vision the people will perish. Unbelievable!
