Mello misrepresents, again: STOTHERT SETS THE RECORD STRAIGHT ON STREETCAR

The Stothert for Mayor campaign has launched a new TV ad that tells the truth about the mayor’s position on a proposed streetcar.

The ad also tags liberal Democrat Heath Mello for spending more, taxing more and opposing a job-creating tax cut while in the Nebraska Legislature.

“My opponent has a problem telling the truth,” Mayor Jean Stothert said. “Because he hasn’t done so on the streetcar issue, I will do it for him.

“I will continue to move Omaha forward. Mr. Mello would take our city backwards,” she said.

The Omaha World-Herald has called out Mello for his misrepresentations.

“Facts”

Liberal Heath Mello is lying about Jean Stothert’s position on the streetcar.

The fact: Jean Stothert hasn’t committed a single Omaha tax dollar to build the streetcar and won’t without voter approval.

Mello is trying to divert attention from his record.

The deciding vote for a gas tax increase.

Millions in new spending.

Opposing a five hundred million dollar tax cut.

Heath Mello’s a typical, double talking politician who will take Omaha backwards.
