How else to get the word out. Newspapers don't want to hear it so here it goes!!!

Did you know that Lary has been having an affair with Amy from Amy's on the Bay for about 3-4 years now!! Even shows up to events with her.

Lary contacts dealerships and says he is a jouronlism and wants to write articles about their vehicles so he can get free leased cars. He goes from one car to another all for free. Notice his cars from now on... You will notice he will change brands every time he changes cars.

What about the DUI?? Can't forget that one.
It's time for a new person in charge... one that we can count on!!!

Not ONE SINGLE WORD of that is true. I just found this today, or I would have responded when it was posted had I been aware of it.

My wife Dee and I were close friends with Amy and her husband Grant when they were married - nothing more. This is a rumor started back when Amy ran against Fred Chang for City Council by certain supporters of his to discredit Amy, and it has been perpetuated since then, and re-ignited for this campaign.

The people responsible deluged my wife with anonymous phone calls from blocked numbers for months, in an effort to drive a wedge between us. How low can you go?

Dee and I have remained friends with Amy since her divorce, and Amy has a boyfriend she met and became close to after the divorce. She was very helpful and supportive in my re-election campaign, and did a lot of door-belling with me - as did others. End of story. In the meantime, her restaurant has been the target of a word-of-mouth boycott organized by the people behind this vicious rumor. I'm pleased to say, the restaurant has rebounded from the boycott and is doing well.

The car reference is also totally false. I do drive and write reviews of cars for the Business Journal, WestSound Home & Garden Magazine, the Auto Reviewers blog and a number of lifestyle magazines around the country.

I DO NOT solicit these from local dealers - nor would I. That would be totally unethical and I would lose credibility within the automotive journalist's community - as well as with the manufacturers. The vehicles come from the national press fleets maintained by each manufacturer. I am one of about 300 journalists around the country recognized by the manufacturers as eligible to receive cars from their fleets. They are delivered and picked up by the manufacturer's press fleet managers.

I also served two terms as president of the Northwest Automotive Press Association (NWAPA) and two terms as its treasurer. As president, I took this fledgling trade association from having less than $600 in the bank to a point of establishing and endowing 3 college scholarships for aspiring automotive writers. NWAPA also sponsors the premier off-road competition in the nation, MudFest.

I'm simply amazed that this kind of character assassination is taken seriously given the actual facts.
