Most Irvingites thought “good old boy” politics were a thing of the past, but here they are popping up again with backward thinking “us vs. them” with unsubstantiated innuendo in an attempt to sway voters. It is even more insidious when the city hall establishment is doing their bidding and spewing skewed information slanted to favor one candidate over another. That is exactly what is happening right here in Irving my friends. Don’t fall for the bait and get reeled in by false rhetoric.
How is the city is getting in on the election with half-truths and distortions? In the latest Irving City Spectrum published by the city, they claim that John Danish “has resided in the territory for 54 years” and “Loren Byers…has resided in the territory for six years.” The truth is the “District” is only 6 years old, the territory (that would be prior to Texas becoming a state) has been here a lot longer. I have been in my home in Irving since 1986. John’s house was built in 1989. He may have lived in the city for 54 years but, he couldn’t live in the district until it was created six years ago. I have lived in the city for 39 years (moved here in 1975 but left for 2 years due to employment) not just “…for several years”.
Contrary to a recent ROBO call financed by Focus Irving, I am not supporting Donald Trump, I do not think Latinos are criminals, and do not want to be associated with Donald Trump or his positions. I consider the accusation made by the ROBO call and posted on Facebook slanderous. The State Representative making the false and misleading statements is Roberto Alonso. Please feel free to contact him directly at (214) 942-7104.
In the past it was claimed dirty money supports the Mayor and some “pet rocks”. Not then and NOT IN THIS ELECTION! The only PAC involved in this election campaign, Focus Irving, has financed and published incorrect and slanderous information about me. Evidently my opponent has not been able to dig up any negative information so fictional information is being said. Unethical and slanderous behaviors can be laughable and only help to prove why the “status quo” needs to be challenged by the citizens. I urge you to take a stand and stop voting for people who support this kind of dirty politics. Let’s make Irving even better by voting for Loren Byers for Irving City Council Place 1.
