The Truth Literally Beats The Leonard & Lane Lies
As you can see this ad is informing us that the choice is clear in the TRWD Board election, an election whose results we will know on Saturday.
My polling seems to indicate a landslide win for Craig Bickley and Michele Hojnaki Von Luckner because I have yet to talk to anyone who is voting for Leonard or Lane.
Also in the email, which delivered the above ad, was a letter which asks why the aforementioned Leonard and Lane are stooping to such absurd lies about Bickley and Von Luckner and Monty Bennett. We touched on that subject in a previous blogging titled Marty Leonard & Jim Lane Are TRWD Puppets Of Dallas Billionaires.
The Leonard and Lane hyperbolic lies are a bit embarrassing. Easily refuted with the truth. And I think, from what I've heard, a lot of people are disgusted with the TRWD incumbents and their sleazy ad tactics, hence that toss the bums out feeling that permeates the current Tarrant Region air.
Anyway, below is the letter refuting the Leonard Lane Lies in its entirety.....
WHY ARE THE INCUMBENT WATER BOARD MEMBERS STOOPING TO SUCH LIES ABOUT MICHELE VON LUCKNER, CRAIG BICKLEY AND THEIR FRIEND MONTY BENNETT?
THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO KNOW HOW HONEST AND COMMITTED TO DOING THE RIGHT THING THEY ARE!
Michele is a loving mom and wife. Married for 19 years, she and her husband Dave have two children. When the recession hit in 2008, both Michele and Dave lost their jobs. All but one of their creditors worked with them, helping them to pay off their debts over time under mutually-agreed upon installments. That one creditor filed suit and refused to mediate. The judge was angry but the law did not allow him to dismiss the lawsuit. He did, however, lower the interest due and set a reasonable payment schedule.
In yet another effort to discredit Michele, the opponents are trying to confuse voters about her last name. Michele’s maiden name is Polish, Hojnaki. Her married name is Von Luckner, just that simple. Like so many people in today’s world, she always seemed to run out of time and never got to the polls to vote on local issues. That is until now, when flooding from the Trinity River is threatening her home and those of her neighbors. Now she is involved and wants to right the wrongs of the Tarrant Regional Water District.
Craig Bickley is an engineer, husband and father. Even though he owns property in the Water District, he cannot vote in this election because his homestead is outside the district’s lines. Yet, he pays water district taxes and knows water is precious. He is running for election to the board because of his strong convictions and his commitment to do the right thing.
Both Michele and Craig are being criticized for having a campaign relationship with a person who has an “arrest” on his record; not a “conviction or even a plea bargain agreement.” The truth is the campaign treasurer for a PAC that has contributed to their campaigns was “arrested” when he was in college at a party, years and years ago, but he was never charged with anything.
Monty Bennett is protecting his mother and the family’s East Texas farm from TRWD’s heavy-handed use of eminent domain. He established a cemetery for his family on that land. And, he honored a request of a friend to bury the ashes of a war veteran and relative there. That’s the simple truth.
