The following is an open letter from congressional candidate Rose Izzo in response to an incident that occurred during the 38th Dist. Republican dinner on April 12, 2012.
It seems as if Mrs. Izzo’s opponent Tom Kovach was first to speak and was asked to comment on his opponent Mrs. Izzo. I was told that Mr. Kovach made the statement that he did not have an opponent, and that Mrs. Izzo was no competition.
Mrs. Izzo took offense to these statements and used most of her time to respond to them.
I was asked to post Mrs. Izzo’s open letter and I will let it speak for itself. I did call Mr. Kovach to allow him to give his view-point on the incident, however at the time of posting this article I had not heard back from him. I will either post in the form of a comment or a separate article when and if he contacts me.
Since I was not actually at the event I can give no more background.
As a side note Mrs. Izzo has officially filed her candidacy on April 20, 2012.
IZZO STANDS UP FOR WOMEN CANDIDATES
An open letter.
Dear Phil Drew, Chairman & the members of the 38th Republican District.
Thank you for giving me the opportunity to address the incident that took place at the Republican dinner on April 12, 2012 .
In hindsight my “Real Housewife” reaction to my opponent’s rude attacks could have waited until after this event. If anyone in attendance was offended by my effort to defend myself, women candidates and women in general, I sincerely apologize. As I explained, I am a social and fiscal conservative, a Pro-Life mom and a real housewife. In fending off my opponent’s remarks the ” Brooklyn ” in me just came out.
“This is politics” one of the members of the 38th district pointed out after the exchange with my opponent.
I am not a professional politician. I am a citizen that believes in our country and the message of smaller government, fewer taxes and fewer regulations. In the future I will not let rude comments distract me off my message of restoring America ’s greatness.
Our government is out of control. Barak Obama disregards the United States Constitution, digs us deeper into debt and weakens our national defense. I refuse to allow Mr. Obama to leave our future generations with the wreckage of what was once the greatest country on earth. Average citizens are over taxed, underemployed and ignored by the lawyers and politicians in Washington . This is why I am stepping up and taking the heat.
Thank you for your time and a lovely dinner.
United States House candidate
