Ender's attacks incorrect

To The Editor:

A mailer distributed by Laurie Ender directly attacking City Council candidate Bob Spierer raises significant questions. Is this win at any cost? Is this desperation?

Is this a matter of ethics or incompetence?

Ender cited a lack of a hospital expansion stance by Bob Spierer, yet in a live appearance on local radio station KHTS, Spierer clearly stated he was in favor of the expansion as long as the most significantly impacted residents were protected.

Spierer specifically identified the need to see the results of the environmental impact report for the proposed third medical office building to ensure residents would not lose their homes in the expansion process. This information was and is available to all via radio station KHTS.

The compassion and attention to detail shown by Spierer should be applauded, not ignored and then assaulted by Ender or her staff. I can understand Ender's concern about KHTS endorsing Bob Spierer, but to ignore or be unaware of what actually occurred should be a warning sign if the only choices regarding Ender's actions are ignorance, incompetence, or lack of moral principles.

With his history of service to our community based on compassion, wisdom, and ethics, I'm confident Bob Spierer will rise above this hit piece and any others thrown his way with the dignity that befits an appropriate choice for City Council.
