I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
So while canvasing at door-to-door meetings, I came across a house with a Zachary Wisniewski sign @ 3627 East Munkwitz Ave. Now I don’t shy away from the houses with the signs at all. I don’t find them intimidating, but do find them a welcomed challenge.
(Have to admit I turned one person to vote for me, however they felt they have to keep the sign up – fear is my guess)
So I knocked on the door and an elderly man comes to the door.
I told him that I see he has one of my opponent’s signs up and that I just wanted to drop off my literature so he can compare and contrast us and in the process make an informed decision!
Folks, here is where things get interesting.
I ask him “When was the last time an alderman contacted you without them contacting the alderman first”?
The gentleman tells me, “Our current alderman that I have up with the sign”. He points to the Zachary Wisniewski sign in his snowy yard.
I tell him that isn’t our current alderman, Zach is just running for alderman like I am for the first time.
He tells me, “No that is not what he said!”
I shake my head and go on, given this gentleman the benefit of doubt that he is just mistaken or misunderstood what Zachary Wisniewski might have told him.
So I then say, “Well one of the things I will be working on and that I understand is, FEES are taxes!”
(Sound familiar, I have been talking about that for years and have even battled Zachary Wisniewski on his blogging blue site where we are in complete disagreement)
The gentleman tells me that Zach (pointing to his sign in the snow) feels the same way!
I tell the gentleman, “No that is not true and I will leave it at that”! I then told him that my mom and dad raised me if you don’t have something good to say about someone, don’t say anything at all.
The gentleman took my literature and thanked me and said he would read it and think about it.
Now Zach, come on man! You confused this elderly man and mislead him!
Was this by design?
I am calling you out Zach on this and that is why I put his address in because these are the facts! I have let so much of things like this slide as I go door-to-door where you are less than honest (you’re telling people you are a fiscal conservative and Wal-Mart is fine) and sometimes by omission, but this one is just flat out wrong!
Zach you start out saying to the people, “What are your concerns, issues, and problems” and have them lead you and then you say to the people, “Yes those are my concerns as well! Or Yes those are the same ones I am concerned about!” They are seeing through this and letting me know!
Then again Zach, if you recall when you kept misquoting Jay Weber and I had to have you correct it 3 times and your answer was it was “close enough” each time. I told you if you quote someone it has to be exactly what they said and you disagreed with me! It wasn’t until Jay Weber was going to have to have the WISN station lawyers contact you did you fix it. So being honest, truth and forthright is NOT in your character!
