Democratic First Selectman candidate David Heim has written a letter to Oxford Patch and other local media outlets stating that incumbent Republican George Temple is not being honest about his record of economic development.
In his letter, Heim states that Temple will put out a four-page insert in Voices this week that shows economic development projects that Temple claims to have had a hand in.
“The four-page insert is one big lie,” Heim said. “The insert shows photos of 17 projects in Oxford and makes it seem as if George Temple and his Economic Development Director had a hand in them. They did not. And a document on the town’s own web site proves that they did not.”
Heim adds: “Neither Temple nor his Economic Development Director seem to have bothered reading that document. It details the truth about these economic development projects. Will someone please tell George Temple that his pants are on fire?”
Note to readers: We will attempt to contact Mr. Temple this morning to get a comment in response to Mr. Heim's claim. We will post that response on Oxford Patch as soon as we receive it.
