Greg Lavelle has launched a new ad in response to the radio ad recorded by Mrs. Katz that claims her husband missed meetings in 2012 because he was still recovering from his December 2010 ski lift accident.
Charlie posted Mike Katz’s Sunset Committee attendance the other day. It’s hard to believe that if he is truly still injured that he missed more meetings in 2012 than in 2011. Plus he has the option to attend via phone and didn’t.
And a simple Google search shows Dr. Katz is able to get around just fine and participate in normal activities:
On June 23, 2011 he was able to attend an awards dinner to hand out congratulatory proclamations at the Medical Society of Delaware. Dr. Katz looks fine in the photos on their website.
And here is Dr. Katz in a September 2011 video talking about electronic health records – he doesn’t seem injured or otherwise incapacitated.
Dr. Katz also looked good on 7/18/2012 when Gov. Markell endorsed him at Kim’s Cafe in Hockessin. (photo on left from Community News).
So Lavelle points out that Katz missed 54% of the meetings he gets paid $3,852 to attend in 2012. Then Katz lets his wife record a whiny radio ad where she talks about his near death ski lift accident and Greg Lavelle is evil for pointing out that he’s missing meetings 2 years later. Give us a break, Mrs. Katz!
Katz and Lavelle are set to debate tomorrow (Fri 11/2/12) on WDEL 1150AM at 3pm. Greg Lavelle was on yesterday to discuss the Mrs. Katz radio ad (click to listen). Tune in tomorrow to see if Dr. Katz shows up for the debate!
If Katz does show up, Alex Pires would like him to do some Tom Carper style pushups to prove he’s medically fit to serve another term.
