Letter: Who sent these offensive mailers?
St Augustine, FL
Two offensive mailers were just sent out to St Johns County voters – one against incumbent Ron Sanchez and one against me.
What do we know about these mailers?
All the mailers have the company’s bulk-rate permit code imprinted. The offensive mailers have permit code 4390 – Sanchez and I have different codes – All of Jeb Smith’s mailers have permit code 4390.
WHO’S TAKING MILLIONS IN GRANTS BUT SAYS GRANTS (SUBSIDIES) ARE BAD?
$1.655 Million Grant #1: Jeb Smith took a $1.655 Million Grant from the State to “protect his land from eminent domain.” He had the option to “protect” his land with no compensation – yet he chose to take $1.655 Million from the taxpayers.
$1.7 Million Grant #2: Jeb Smith took money from Grant #1 to buy additional land. Then, he requested another grant last year from the State to “protect this new land.” His new land is on the State’s Top Tier Project Priority List, with an estimated
$1.7 Million expected to be awarded in 2014.

Yet, Jeb Smith states on his mailer that, “We must stop growing government on the backs of the next generation. One single subsidy will be the last straw.”
SERIOUSLY – DOES ANYONE BELIEVE THIS WHISPER CAMPAIGN?
- I would never call Jeb’s church a cult. This did not come from me or my campaign.
- I am for E-Verify – and I am for it to be reformed and properly implemented. Most importantly, it is the Federal Government’s duty to secure our borders, not the employers’ responsibility to do that job for them!
- I am for term limits of 8 years for County Offices and for term limits of 8-12 years for State and Federal Offices.
- I have not “stolen” campaign documents from Jeb to use against him. That’s not even possible – Jeb has an expensive Tallahassee consultant running his campaign!
