Frederick City Alderman-Elect Phil Dacey is speaking out after it was learned that his campaign asked the State GOP to make a last minute robocall on Tuesday attacking Democratic Candidate Donna Kuzemchak over nonpayment of taxes, payments she subsequently honored.
"Republicans attack Democrats in elections, Democrats attack Republicans. It was a Republican party call. I think it's time to move on for the good of the city and the good of Frederick City," said Dacey.
The automated call, sponsored by the Maryland Republic Party, urged residents not to vote for former Alderwoman Donna Kuzemchak for Board of Aldermen, pointing out that earlier this year she had $3,800 in unpaid personal taxes.
Ted Dacey, Phil's brother, confirmed to the News Post that he called the Maryland Republican Party pointing out to them about Kuzemchak. "I love my little brother and I'm going to defend my family. But I think it's time to move forward pass that and look to governing for the next four years," said Dacey.
