Bizon Campaign Manager Resigns
Mowry quits after accused of 11th hour questionable tactics.
The campaign manager for 62nd State Representative candidate John Bizon has resigned amid allegations that he used questionable campaign tactics.
Hear the full story:
Andrew Mowry was accused of creating a mailer that unfairly and negatively portrayed Bizon’s opponent, Calhoun County Board Chairman Art Kale. The mailer went out last Friday from an independent group in Lansing. Both Bizon and Kale are seeking the Republican nomination for the House Seat that serves most of CalhounCounty. Kale’s campaign manager, Steve Sachs, alleges that Mowry had publicly denied creating the mailer, and then even set up a fake social media account to support its allegations. He calls it shady and completely uncalled for at the 11th hour of the campaign.
Kale says he found it disgusting and disappointing…
Sachs says the mailer cited a light-hearted post by Kale about meeting civil rights leader Julian Bond at an Albion College event, and getting a campaign tip from Bond about how to remember names. He says the Bizon campaign then tried to make it appear that Kale agreed with comments that Bond made that were critical of conservatives.
Dr. John Bizon says he did not discuss the origin of the mailer with Mowry and says he saw it for the first time when it arrived at his front door. Kale says that somebody should apologize.
Bizon says he regrets that the campaign took a negative turn on both sides.
