A note from Stan Adelstein
Here's one that hit the e-mail boxes late last week
From: stanford adelstein [mailto:email@example.com]So much for staying positive. What, did Stan even wait a day until going negative on behalf of his candidate?

Dear Friends of Women, Progress and a future of equality,
While DIA is enjoying a well earned rest, our opposition is not. Sam Kooiker has a solid backing of the Extreme right that is planning another election assult. They are going to turn out their vote for Rapid City Mayor in less than three weeks. Those of us supporting Alan Hanks do not have a comparable number of volunteers to match them. Their zealots will do what it takes. Fortunately we enjoy a small majority, from our polling and information.
Why do they care about the Mayor? We beat them in November, and they know that they must rebuild - step by step - at every level of political office. How helpful do you think that a Mayor would be for an Elizabeth Kraus as she runs to replace our friend Mac? What kind of a candidate recruiting effort would the city hall in second largest city in the SD be able to mount? You all know the story -- they built a majority while honest, caring people worked for a future for all.
I would truly appreciate hearing from those of you who could give us some hours the next two and half weeks.
