Marty was talking about Dan Onorato, a frequent guest. Dan is slated to be on the show on Thursday with his talk to the County Executive segment. The show host's comments touched a nerve. Right after the show, I wrote Mr. Griffin via his web form.
There are people who are running against Dan Onorato -- including ME.
Either you lie by design or you play ignorant for unknown reasons. What's up investigative reporter?
You were going to book me on the show -- then the convention center floor fell. ???
We are recruiting candidates and you are NOT helping as you spread silly statements that are not true.
I kept you posted. You can reply to me now.
So help me...
I lie by design?
And you want me to help you.
You should NOT be in sales.
Regarding my response to you.
So...i get 1000 to 1500 e-mails per week and im supposed to jump all
over your kind words?
Things that make you go hmmmmmmmmmm
Good luck with the campaign
My reply, sent in the afternoon of the same day.
> You should NOT be in sales.
I'm NOT in sales. I'm looking to defend freedom and liberty in these parts.
I'm in education, Marty. You know better.
You don't fail me as much as you fail your kid (s) and my kids with your willingness to trumpet the status quo by squashing the truth. (Dan Onorato has TWO opponents.) Plus, the squashing of idealism within this region hurts them the most.
I'm looking to raise my kids in an open society. Others have equal values. This explains why the city is bleeding its people.
Marty's reply, Mar 6 (21 hours ago)
Don't see anyone buying what you're trying to sell...
No newspapers...tv stations...radio stations...other talk show hosts.
Let me help you....
Next time you want to appear on a highly rated talk show...that would be
ours....it might help to stay away from calling the host...that would be
Regarding the lack of response.
I get 1000 to 2000 e-mails per week.
I answer them myself.
Sometimes it takes a while.
For the slow response....I'm sorry.
Good luck with the campaign.
Last night's email message from me to Marty:
I did not call you an idiot.
Thanks for saying "sorry" about the slow response.
Your statement today, on the air, implying that Dan Onorato has NO OPPOSITION for the pending elections is WRONG. Two opponents exist. Candidates, myself included, have chosen to run against Mr. Onorato.
More than a month ago, before the Convention Center collapses, I offered to be on the air with you to follow up on some segments you hosted. You called for candidates in no uncertain terms. I answered the call you made. My decisions to run wasn't 'because of you. Our process was already in the works. I was hopeful that I'd be booked to the show because of communications off the air to me from your show.
Perhaps you decided that I wouldn't be a worthy guest or that this topic didn't fit for some reason some weeks ago. I don't know why because I never heard again from you or the producers.
I've "pinged" you a few times since. We have some history. So, today's statement from you on your wildly popular show about the lack of ANY COMPETITION for Onorato justifies a poke from me.
The first word you used in the recent email reply was "Funny." Marty, this is serious. I'm serious. I don't stick my neck out as a joke. I'm standing for office. I work on, within and for our community. You can choose to ignore me. You can choose to hate me. But, expect a reply when your acts are wreckless with the truth and the aims go to damage our shared public spaces.
Thanks for listening.
I hope mom, baby and you have great health and wonderful times in the
months to come.
On today's (Wed, March 7, 2007), Marty mentioned my name on the radio and also said that I called him an idiot. Sigh. He also hinted that I'd be on the show tomorrow. Thursdays are for Onorato. But Timira just called (2:50 pm on Wed). I'm now booked for Friday at 10:15 am. I guess I'm on for "Fun Friday."
