Any chance Johnie Rosenfeld’s campaign had – at electing Johnie Rosenfeld as the next Eagle County Commissioner – ended last week.
The story filed last week by the Fishwrap’s top reporter (Randy Wyrick) of Wyrick’s review of the Public (Courthouse) Records – related to multiple lawsuits against Rosenfeld’s business – killed any chance Johnie had. (Click Here)
Johnie has campaigned to a large extent on his Private Sector experience as a job creator and as a local successful business person and as a Conservative.
All solid Conservatives know – a fundamental tenant of Conservatism is Fiscal Responsibility.
Multiple Eagle County Court records document a much different understanding of the nature of Conservatism, on the part of Commissioner candidate Rosenfeld.
Should Johnie’s campaign (by some miracle?) win the Primary election on June 26th – no one will be cheering louder and happier than Johnie’s democrat challenger in this November’s General Election.
Just imagine…the bloodbath against Johnie’s campaign in the local media this fall.
With those Court records as all the evidence – Johnie’s democrat opponent needs – Johnie’s record would be called out endlessly.
Integrity? Conservative? What about these multiple lawsuits documenting Johnie’s difficulty paying people who worked for him?
More questions will be raised by Johnie’s democrat opponent….Can you trust Johnie? Why didn’t Johnie get his personal/business financially “conservative” house in order – before running for County Commissioner? Imagine (attack) YouTube videos of local business people testifying they had to take Johnie to Court in order to get paid the money Johnie’s business owed them. How is it Johnie had money for campaign signs and paid print campaign advertising – yet no money to pay the folks that Johnie’s business owes?
All this fall media attention will be aimed at one thing: to convince the largest block of Eagle County voters (unaffiliated/independents) that Johnie Rosenfeld is a poor choice to manage Eagle County’s $70+ Million dollar Annual Budget. There is no question that such a campaign would be successful defeating GOP candidate Johnie Rosenfeld in November’s General Election.
If the Eagle County GOP has any chance of electing a GOP County Commissioner this fall – they need to make sure – that GOP Primary candidate Jeff Layman wins on Tuesday, June 26th and moves on to the General Election in November 2012.
At least now – you know what to expect…especially if Johnie Rosenfeld supporters repeat the (financial) mistakes of Dan Maes failed Gubernatorial Colorado campaign of 2010. (Click Here)
Below are the number of Returned (U.S. Mail) ballots in the June 26th 2012 – Eagle County Primary Election, per the Eagle County Clerk and Recorders office. Numbers are current through Friday, June 15th 2012. Interesting…that even though there are NO contested Democrat Primary Races…the number of returned Ballots from local democrats amazes the ECT folks…
