Hartnett Responds to Wellik’s Charges

State House District 114 Democratic candidate John Wellik opened his campaign last week, portraying Republican opponent Will Hartnett as out of step with the district and part of the cadre of Austin politicians who have, in Wellik’s view, stymied Texas’ potential. Hartnett, in the middle of a two-week jury trial, called Wellik’s campaign kickoff “a minor political event attended entirely by active Democrats” and offered this reponse via e-mail:

“My opponent’s comments paint him as a typical ‘tax and spend’ Democrat aligned with the free-spending policies of the Obama Administration.  I am confident that my conservative voting record and my fiscally conservative philosophy are more in tune with the interests of the district.  I look forward to comparing and contrasting our respective philosophies and positions.”
