I've been a close observer of local politics for over 20 years. I've never seen a more negative, libelous and false campaign as is being waged by District Attorney Elizabeth Egan against challenger Lisa Sondergaard Smittcamp. I'm overcome with anger at the filth and trash that arrives in my mailbox daily from Ms. Egan. She and her supporters have torn an entire community apart to hold a political office.
I don't know who will win June 3, but I can tell you we've all lost already because of the vile and personal nature of the attacks by our DA against a truly great Fresno family. If you vote for Egan, you've endorsed the worst of what politics has to offer, and should never complain again about character assassination in politics.
