Bad form: CM Lonnell Matthews sends constituents combined flood relief meeting info and Steven Turner campaign fundraiser ad

Thanks to Mike Peden for forwarding the e-mail below that CM Lonnell Matthews sent to his District 1 constituents. I am not sure whether this violates campaign ethics laws, but pigging-backing a fundraiser for a candidate for General Assembly with a mailer on North Nashville flood relief seems crude to me. Isn't sending out campaign material under the Metro government insignia plainly unethical?

  1. Maybe he was just trying to conserve paper?

  2. I will agree that it is, at the very least, weird and unadvisable. One would hope that Metro didn't pay the postage for it. That would definitely be problematic.
