Norwood mayoral candidates pledge negativity-free campaigns

Really? In Norwood? Hooray!

Calling the race for mayor between Democrat incumbent Tom Williams and his Republican challenger Al Boehme “tame,” Friday’s Enquirer explained that both “have pledged to keep their campaigns free of negativity.” Could this spell the end of what the article called “bruising politics” in our burg? Maybe the beginning of issues-based campaigns sans dirty tricks? We’ve certainly seen signs of the latter in the content and tone of the candidate blogs we’ve published, and we want to take this opportunity to thank all the candidates for their thoughtful submissions. And thank you, Tom Williams and Al Boehme, for setting a new tone of civility for Norwood political campaigns.
