As voters we’ve all been frustrated by how hard it can be to get accurate information about the candidates we’re voting for. Oftentimes good information is scarce on state races and especially local races. More often, the information we do get is so biased and distorted it’s hard to know what to believe. The best articles are those that provide their sources so that readers can easily verify facts for themselves.
I recently wrote an article on Todd Barton’s record while in office as mayor. His response a few days later claimed that I distorted the facts on his record, and then went on to accuse me of several positions I’ve never taken on issues. So, at this point the best thing to do is for each of us to provide our list of sources for our facts, so that the voters are given the most accurate information on which to base their votes. Here’s the list of Mr. Barton’s claims and then my source to back up my facts. I hope this helps.
