… and that reminds us:
It’s also almost August, but if you visit my opponent’s web site, you might think it’s Christmas.
When my opponent has my head dancing across the top of his web site that means I have gotten into his head. That tactic has a flop sweat smell to it. Somebody is getting worried.
Let’s look at the banner of my website:
That’s me and my wife, Mary Pat Tyree, and our city’s skyline. (And I’ve heard the line that the party is running the wrong Tyree. Mary Pat just might agree with that so please don’t tell her.)
I think my opponent has, inadvertantly, summed up the difference in our campaigns. He is mired in the politics of the past. I have a vision for the future.
In keeping with the Christmas theme, there are no gifts attached to those who donate to my campaign, and I won’t use the office of sheriff to personally enrich myself.
I do not and will not have any ownership or financial interest in wrecker companies, food services or any other county-services provider. There will be no badges, cars and guns because you are a friend of the sheriff. No wonder I am portrayed as the Grinch on my opponent’s site – he knows I will take away the toys and non-competitive bids.
As R. Neal noted in his blog, it’s a slick site and “sounds like Jones is worried.”
My opponent had to dig and distort and flash images across the screen that look like some newspaper version of that first-generation computer game of Pong.
A $60 million budget belongs in the hands of someone who is responsible to the taxpayers – someone who was properly put in office.
J.J. Jones and Tim Hutchison celebrate Black Wednesday.
It’s Wednesday. Never forget.
And, remember, this time YOU decide!
P.S. I’ve added my photo tag to the blog. This picture is a marked improvement over the driver’s license shot and was taken this week. So that should officially end the ridiculous notion that I’m too much of a relic for public office. 🙂
