Friedlander strikes again



Democratic Pinellas Property Appraiser candidate Ben Friedlander has another radio spot out. Like his previous one, it takes to task his Republican opponent, Pam Dubov, for allegedly failing in her duty to the public during the Jim Smith land deal last year. At the time, Dubov was Smith's chief deputy.

Dubov warned Smith not to go through with the deal, but the spot argues she should have done more.

The ad is based on the conceit that Dubov is interviewing for a job. Here's an excerpt: "So, do you choose your boss, or hundreds of thousands of taxpayers who are counting on you to do the right thing? Do you have the judgment we need? I'm sorry Ms. Dubov, that was the wrong answer."
