Who Got The Spelling Wrong On Their Campaign Signs? Not Don Ayotte, This Time!

Trey  Okay, so Pete Kramer who is running against Democrat incumbent Trey Paradee for the 29th Rep. District got up early to put up what he so obviously is proud of.   So as you can see Mr. Kramer is proudly smiling as he stands next to his newly minted sign, problem is, he seems to have failed to proof read them before placing, and then photographing them.

Well don’t feel so bad Mr. Kramer, you are not the first to make such a mistake, but you have given me a reason to bring back one of the oldies, but goodies.

idiots   I am sure that in both cases the excitement was just too much for them, they just couldn’t wait to get their new shirt and or signs out to the masses.

In all fairness to Mr. Kramer, he did finally figure out his mistake and made corrections.

    Yeah that was pretty embarrassing. You will be happy to know that my campaign manager is beside himself with grief about it. I can’t blame him though. I’d had the proof of that sign for a month and I hadn’t noticed the error. I’d also shown the proof to 5 other advisers and none of them noticed it either.

    Just have to keep on rolling. We goofed… not much else to say. Luckily the message is spelled correctly and is loud and clear: my opponent has voted for every single tax since he’s been in office, despite promising to do the opposite in 2012, and I’m not going to let him hide from it.

  2. Mr. Kramer’s response is exactly correct. Making a mistake and then admitting to it is the only way to handle this sort of thing. It’s not surprising that others missed the error as well. This sort of thing has cropped up before, and it has always been due to human error.
    Frank, isn’t your employer’s name Paradee? I’m just sayin’…

    Dr. Bowman, the Paradees are no longer involved in the company I work for, and have not been for fourteen years.
    Nice try though. If you bother to notice, I said in the post, “In all fairness to Mr. Kramer, he did finally figure out his mistake and made corrections.” ” Unlike the IPOD people who continued to wear the misspelled T-shirts for weeks.”
    Dr. Bowman, take a minute and think about it, it’ll come to you.

    Why does Frank have to depend on attack posts to receive comments. This just proves that he is an itinerant idiot that can’t write with interjecting hatred into nearly everything he writes while attempting to mask it as serving the public interest..

  5. Say it ain't so says:

    Kudos to Pete. Embarrassed? Yes, accountable? Yes. Thanks Pete for taking responsibility and realizing it’s just a minor spelling error. On to victory in November!

    Great response from Mr. Kramer! His stock just went way up in my book.

    Wouldn’t it be great if more people would take responsibility for their actions without excuse or accusation, then move forward in a positive manner?

    HUMOR people. Take a minute an enjoy. Pete is a stand up guy, who sees the humor in the mistake and has stood up and corrected the mistake, a trait that many elected officials and candidates could learn from.

    It was funny, It is a non issue as to whether Pete or Trey would represent the district better than the other. The issue seems to be that we have two conservative candidates running in a district that was once represented by Lincoln Willis.

    All politics are local, and in this case, it will be decided by locals, hopefully locals with a sense of humor.

  8. Frank Knotts says:

    It must be terrible to live a life so serious that a good natured jab is considered hatred. The candidate himself got it, I also heard from the other party involved who got it. The only ones who don’t get it are those who are filled with hatred for me.

  9. Harry Whittington says:

    Kramer’s sign is great, despite the spelling error.

  10. Frank Knotts says:

    But is it true?

  11. Pete Kramer says:

    I wouldn’t put it on a sign if it wasn’t true. Every tax bill that has come up for a vote, Rep. Paradee has been a “Yes”.

    It’s no surprise that some are confused. That’s because Mr. Paradee promised the exact opposite in 2012. Screenshots of his promises and his votes are on my website. These promises really took a lot of the juice out of Rep. Willis’ reelection platform, and I believe it’s one of the major reasons why Rep. Paradee won.

    I’ve received a few emails stating that I’m misrepresenting Mr. Paradee’s record. Mr. Paradee recently completed his Central Delaware Chamber of Commerce interview and claimed to be opposed to the proposed Gas Tax, The Water Tax, and business license fee increases.

    Well fool me once shame on you. Fool me twice shame on me.

    The only thing I know for sure about Mr. Paradee is that he is a staunch advocate for taxpayers… until it’s time to vote on tax increases.

    What can we really judge a politician on: his words or his deeds?
