No press conference to publicly confront a treasurer candidate about his claims to have been “volunteer assistant treasurer” will happen Wednesday afternoon on the City Hall steps, after all.
The Times-Advocate had gotten an anonymous tip that such a press conference was planned, and might be attended by one, two or three candidates—but the tip turned out to be false. Something we didn’t find out until after press time.
These kinds of leads can sometimes happen during a fast moving election campaign, and it turns out that we acted on a lead that turned out to be false.
We regret the error.
