Challenger Criticizes Herseth Sandlin On Free Mail
August 5, 2010, 2:12 PM
PIERRE, SD -
Republican congressional candidate Kristi Noem says if she's elected to the U.S. House, she will not send unsolicited campaign-style mail to South Dakotans at taxpayers' expense.
Noem criticized Democratic Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin for using glossy mailings to notify people of a field hearing set for Friday in Eagle Butte to discuss education programs for American Indian children. She says there are more efficient ways to let people know of meetings.
But Herseth Sandlin says mass mailings, telephone conferences and newspaper ads are effective ways to let South Dakotans know about meetings or important issues. Herseth Sandlin says she follows House guidelines and is probably about average in her use of franked mail.
