Dear Friends –
Please read the email below from Leila Philip and then read the two attached fliers put out by Mike Alberts. As Leila states, the claims against Bill Loftus are false (as the same claims against Sherri Vogt two years ago were also false). I served on the Board of Education for four years with Bill Loftus and know that he is focused on supporting education for ALL students at ALL our schools in Woodstock. He will work hard with his positive agenda to promote education, improve our economy and support local businesses. Please cast your vote for Bill Loftus for State Representative next Tuesday.
Feel free to pass this on to others, so that they may educate themselves about the candidates.

“The price of democracy is eternal vigilance” — Thomas Jefferson
Hello. I’m Leila Philip. I live in Woodstock. I served on the Board of Education alongside Bill Loftus.
I am outraged at the recent negative campaign tactics of Mike Alberts which have distorted facts about Bill Loftus. Not only has Alberts grossly misled the public, in doing so he has undermined our democratic principles.
Take a look at the two fliers for Mike Alberts which I have attached. (When you open in adobe reader, use the arrows on your keyboard to flip from front to back). One is from his campaign two years ago and the other arrived yesterday. What Alberts says about Bill Loftus is NOT TRUE. Bill Loftus never drafted legislation to change the governance of Woodstock Academy. But look, you can see Alberts used this same tactic of making false claims against his opponent in regards to the Academy two years ago! What does that tell you about Alberts’ credibility? Does he believe the public can be so easily manipulated?
As Jefferson said so eloquently over 200 years ago, democracy takes vigilance. So please, be vigilant, look at these two ads and see for yourself how Mike Alberts has resorted to lies and false claims two elections in a row. We deserve better than this from our State Representative.
I want honest leadership to represent our community. Bill Loftus is focused on a positive agenda to improve our economy, support our schools and help local business.
We live in one of the greatest democracies the world has ever seen. Please, do your part by educating yourself about the candidates before you cast your vote.
Feel free help by passing this message on to others.
