    Nelson, I’m with you on the City of Colleyville problems & am fighting to get the Taylors/Moggeds out of office, but this is a bit outrageous. I’ve known Scott Fisher for more than 20 years and he is as fine of an individual as I’ve known in my lifetime. You seem to be employing tactics used by the very people we’re trying to get out of office. If you want to argue against Scott Fisher on issues, that’s fine, but this “guilt by association” effort is about as below the belt as it gets & I’m quite disappointed in you.

    Jerry glad to hear from you and certainly do not want to disappoint you. The point of the article was Fisher and Hutton are using the same political consultant group, Nasica Murphy. If you note, the additional comments are made by individuals that have followed the exploits of Murphy and his history of working for and promoting candidates that are opposing known quantity conservatives in the majority of his work. In addition, there seems to be a certain “edge” to his campaign tactics that are common place, for example twisting the truth; such as Hutton’s claims against Judge Wallace. I do not know Mr. Fisher, nor did I comment on Mr. Fisher, but only the connection between the consultants, the tactics and the candidates.

      Not true Nelson, you referred to Fisher’s campaign as “dirty” with nothing to back up the claim, and you spread rumors such as this one:

      “Sources at the forum suggested that Fisher skipped the event out of fear that he might be forced to answer questions about his campaign’s questionable tactics”

      Which appear to make Scott out as a coward, which sounds like outright gossip rather than solid, political reporting.

      It’s clear the article was to insinuate that Scott is less than honorable, with you evidence being nothing more than the fact that he hired the same consultant as Hutton and unamed sources spreading rumors at an event. You cannot make such claims without indicting the character of the man against whom the claims were levied and I would urge you to issue an apology to Scott and the readers of your publication.

        First no apology is necessary nor forthcoming. The comments you referred was attributed to Texas Scorecard Magazine and the San Antonio Express News. Further, your determination that the article “insinuates” is clearly your opinion. I stand by the fact the campaign tactics of Hutton and Fisher appear to have a lot of similarities in style and insinuations concerning the character of their opponents.
