Alderman John Arena Sets the Record Straight: Campaign responds to political smears

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Tues., Feb. 17, 2015

Alderman John Arena (45th) today responded to a number of false political attacks from his opponents, and released a document that sets the record straight on his positions. Despite Ald. Arena’s attempts to run a positive campaign focusing on the progress the 45th Ward has made over the last four years, his opponents and their allies have worked to distract voters from the issues and spread misinformation.

“These negative attacks range from taking things out of context to downright lies,” said Ald. Arena, “and I decided it was time to make sure voters know the facts.”

Alderman John Arena Sets the Record Straight is available at www.arenafor45.com/facts. It focuses on the truth behind six specific false attacks made by opponents.

“I’m sure we’ll see more political smears over these last eight days of the campaign,” added Ald. Arena. “I’m going to stay focused on talking to voters about everything we’ve accomplished together during my first term, and what we can do together over the next four years.”
