Mayor battle’s son sent this e-mail out to supporters…
The qualifying period for the Mayor’s race closed yesterday afternoon and we now know what we are up against. We’re moving into the best part of the campaign – where we get to discuss issues facing our community and what we’ve been able to accomplish so far.
My dad will outline his vision to keep moving Huntsville forward at a debate at 7pm Monday night at the Grissom High School auditorium. We need you to attend and show your support for a responsible, accountable vision for our community moving forward.
This is the only debate being planned where both of our opponents will show up to discuss the issues. As intended by the hosts of this event, many of the questions posed will be emotional in nature and may delude the effectiveness of discussing the facts. We need you there to show your support of a fact-based discussion focused on how we will keep our community moving forward.
This line will not go over well….

It’s condescending and implies the folks involved are irrational and crazy.
While, I have had many disagreements with the SHCA, this kind flip comment does not help the Battle campaign at all.
I apologize to our members for the need to include the derogatory insinuations made in the email below. We will proceed with our plans to host a fair debate. Whether facts, fiction or emotions are presented will be determined by the candidates.
Question: Why is The Huntsville Housing Authority such a crappy issue for former Mayor Loretta Spencer’s campaign?
Easy. Loretta appointed that HHA Board and leadership. How does she attack her own Board in this campaign. Can’t. Won’t work. Battle is working with what she gave him.
