Council candidate apologizes for false endorsement claim
A direct-mail piece that recently landed in Lincoln mailboxes claimed that City Council candidat Travis Nelson was endorsed by the South Salt Creek Neighborhood Association. Only one problem: He wasn’t.
A member of the South Salt Creek association — Teri Pope-Gonzalez — said not only did the association NOT endorse Nelson, its bylaws prevent it from endorsing anyone.
Nelson rectified the situation with a little posting on his Facebook page, apologizing for any confusion. That ought to do it! Thousands of households with inaccurate information versus a Facebook page with a little apology.
