Chaltiel: “Meet the liberals running for mayor”

Victor Chaltiel, the local businessman outspending all of his rivals on TV, is out with a mailer labeling four other candidates as liberals. He has brief descriptions of each in the piece, which I have posted at right.

My guess is this was sent to Republicans and independents, although his campaign won't confirm.

How do I know it is V for Victor? That's his home address on the piece.

Remember some Republicans took a poll before the race began and saw an opportunity for a Republican among the Democrats (Carolyn Goodman was a Democrat but switched to nonpartisan.) Chaltiel also paid for focus groups on his heavy French accent, found it was a big negative and still ran.
