The Sierra Club gave mayoral candidate Javier Gonzales an "undeserved Christmas gift" when it endorsed his candidacy, opponent Patti Bushee said Friday in a press release.

"We think his environmental record deserves a large lump of coal from PNM's Four Corner's power plant, and we think individual Sierra Club members and voters will, too, after they've reviewed his record," the release states.

    Jeez... quite the response from Patti. So is she saying this is a conspiracy? Is she saying that Sierra Club is irrelevant? What is the purpose of endorsements if we are just gonna cry foul?

    This is not the behavior of a potential mayor, if you ask me. Kinda like a sore loser, right? No wonder so many people in our community are afraid of her.

    Pass on Patti!

    I am very disturbed by Patti Bushee's behavior in this campaign. Time after time she is on the attack. She seems to attack everybody - her opponents, the newspapers, the Center for Progress and Justice. Her actions are very unbecoming of a mayor.

    Looks like her greatest strength is directing her team of lawyers and campaign managers on how to fill the room up with smoke and line the wall with mirrors.

    I think I'll pass on Patti and look to Gonzales and Dimas.
