Confuse the voters. This from today’s State House News Service (sorry, can’t link to SHNS):
DOG RACING GROUP TAKE NAME OF GROUP SUPPORTING RACING BAN
A ballot question committee has formed to oppose Question 3, which bans dog racing, but the committee appears to have taken the name of an existing statewide non-profit dedicated to fostering collaboration of animal care professions and supportive of the ballot initiative. There’s another problem on Monday’s filing of the “Massachusetts Animal Coalition” – the group spelled its name the Massachessetts Animal Coalition. The group lists its chairman and treasurer as Jill Mead of Wellesley and Lynne Morin of Raynham as its “other officer.”
Of course, dirty, underhanded tactics is all they’ve got. The tracks can’t win among the voters unless they confuse them. It’s really all they’ve got at this point, but I think the people are going to be able to sniff this out. Massachusetts voters don’t like dirty campaign tactics.
