Turbett is the only Democrat running
To the Editor:
Some people just love Pat Turbett! Several of these people inadvertently signed his nominating petitions more than once. When the signatures were counted and the double signatures omitted, Pat did not have enough signatures to be put on the Democratic line. The Democratic Committee is allowing Mr. Bunstone—who is a Republican—to run on the Democratic line.
Make no mistake. Pat Turbett is the ONLY Democrat running for the seat in District 10. You can find his name on the Independent line, but his heart is the heart of a true Democrat.
