For Immediate Release

Got this in our email box mere moments ago:


Wishes to clear the air on other matters

Councilwoman Theresa Smith would like to apologize to all of her constituents and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette for an ad that some have misconstrued as inferring that the Post-Gazette had endorsed her for the upcoming primary.

"I wish to run a campaign of honesty and integrity against the remnants of human refuse that are my opponents."

Councilwoman Smith wishes to clarify the following items, which have been questionable veracity:

* Funding for the Mount Washington CDC was provided in part by Councilman Bruce Kraus, not, as earlier indicated, by Councilwoman Smith alone.

* Funding for the Westwood Athletic Association had been introduced to council, not formally approved.

* The Councilwoman was endorsed by the Allegheny County Democratic Committee, not the band ACDC, as some literature had indicated.

* Ms. Smith did not repave Chartiers Boulevard by herself, but was assisted by the road crew at Department of Public Works.

* Ms. Smith did not steal the Mares of Diomedes or the Apples of the Hesperides. These are part of the twelve labors of Hercules.

* The Councilwoman was not, as previously indicated on her website, the starting forward for the Cleveland Cavaliers.

* The Councilwoman does not know the Pope or Ronald McDonald personally.

* Ms. Smith was never a man named "Larry."

* Despite having only served only a few weeks in Council, the Councilwoman does have a record to stand on, but certain mailing may have incorrectly indicated that all legislation passed by council was as the result of her actions.

* Ms. Smith has never eaten the hearts of her enemies.
"I hope these clarifications will set the record straight for the voters of Council District 2."
