Three people sent me this blast email from John Wood, all of whom thought it was fishy. It was sent to an email list called “Sterling Women” by someone in that organization, but the email is written by John Wood. He makes his Educate Loudoun pitch, but somehow forgets to mention that Educate Loudoun is supporting the current no-reform, protect the status quo, renew Hatrick’s contract School Board Chairman John Stevens. He then ends by touting the business need for good schools and lists his credentials, including his spot as Chairman of the Loudoun Economic Development Committee.
This is right down the same path as his infamous letter on EDC letterhead urging the Board of Supervisors to “fully fund” Hatrick’s provably bloated school budget. Once again we hear about how Hatrick’s budget is more important than our tax rate to attract and retain businesses. And if this is a political advertisement for Educate Loudoun, shouldn’t this have a disclosure similar to a candidate email blast? While I like their stated goals and some of the candidates they have endorsed, I still don’t trust a thing about this PAC.
Text of the email is provided below the fold.
