Funding pitch illustrates bad blood between Hodges, Andrew

Posted by: Eric Roper Updated: August 14, 2013 - 10:11 AM

There is no love lost between Mark Andrew and Betsy Hodges after a testy exchange at a union forum on Monday night.

Andrew said that Hodges “had the disease of a small vision” with regard to her opposition to a new convention center hotel, according to the Southwest Journal.

That prompted the fundraising e-mail below from Hodges on Tuesday night.

More than any other mayoral candidates, Hodges and Andrew have repeatedly taken jabs at each other on the campaign trail. Andrew also recently criticized Hodges for her support of a municipalization referendum, for example.
