Attack Mailers: City Attorney James F. Penman versus David McKenna

By Michael Reiter, Attorney at Law

First, a disclaimer:  this site is neutral as explained in the post “Why We Try To Keep Partisan Politics Out of These Postings”  These postings are provided as a community service, and not to push a particular candidate, or slate of candidates.

The United States Postal Service has been busy.  We have arrived at the point in the campaign when the negative mailers have replaced the ads that focus on the candidate sending the mailers touting their achievements.  I am not using “attack” as a pejorative. Election politics is about pointing out the differences among the candidates, not just the positives of each candidate.  The reader can judge whether these mailers are fair or unfair.

Two fliers from David McKenna arrived to one Jim Penman mailer, so I’ll present them in a McKenna – Penman – McKenna format.  Again, these are posted as a community service, and not to push either candidate.

The second mailer from David McKenna is a  single sheet, glossy, two-sided heavyweight piece of paper.  Here is the front, here is the back.

City Attorney Jim Penman has sent his fourth mailer, though it says it is from the San Bernardino Police Officers Association, it also says it is paid for by Jim Penman for City Attorney 2011, so it is treated as a Jim Penman mailer.   Here is the front, here is the back.

The third mailer from David McKenna has the same color scheme as the second mailer.  Here is the front, here is the back.

These fliers will be discussed at greater lengths another time.
