CBC Campaign Chief Denies Role In Letters Vs. ‘Little City Weed’ Column

Russ Wodiska, the manager of the Citizens for a Better City (CBC) slate of four candidates running for the Falls Church City Council in the May 4 election, issued a statement this afternoon denying a CBC role in two letters to the editor in the Falls Church News-Press this week that were critical of the contents of Michael Gardner’s “The Little City Weed” column in the News-Press. He also said, “I personally apologize for any appearance to the contrary.”

The following is the text of Wodiska’s statment:

Statement by Russ Wodiska, CBC Campaign Chair

“On April 22, two letters to the editor in the Falls Church News-Press responded to Mr. Michael Gardner’s April 15 “The Little City Weed” column and the ideas and opinions expressed therein.  Any suggestion that the two editorials were a coordinated or organized attack by the CBC Campaign on Mr. Gardner is untrue.  I personally apologize for any appearance to the contrary.  This campaign does not, and will not, engage in personal attacks. Our candidates are dedicated to working together, encouraging broad public engagement, and discussing ideas and issues important in the City.  While community members will agree and disagree, such discourse must occur in a civil, respectful tone commensurate with our community values.”
