Globe Gazette attacks Marquardt campaign for city council

STATEMENT FROM MATT MARQUARDT ON GLOBE GAZETTE PUBLISHING HIS PHOTO DEAD LAST USING FAKE LAST NAME:

Matt Marquardt: “I have been under relentless attack for years from the Globe Gazette and the special interests they serve – special interests that are the true rulers of Mason City. You can be certain, if I am elected, I will fight harder than ever for the citizens of Mason City that have been bullied out of the process and city hall in our community.”

Good day friends. I have been informed that the Globe Gazette ran a story about me and my opponents for city council. They ran my photo dead last with the entirely wrong last name of “BEUHNER” in their newspaper. I find this to be inexcusable – yet typical of their under-handed methods. Also, I attempted to purchase advertising at the Globe Gazette. The editor, David Mayberry, refused my request. He has a history of attacking me earlier this year in a Twitter rant akin to that of a spoiled child. The Globe Gazette has not yet apologized or reached out to me to make this right.

I have called the Globe Gazette to try to get to the bottom of this. I reached David Mayberry. He was extremely rude to me. He refused to have me in to the office to apologize, and he refused to sell me advertising for a second time. Then, he hung up the phone.

I’m sorry that this is the level that Mason City politics has sunk to. My campaign will continue in earnest until we secure victory.

Ultimately, David Mayberry, as Editor of the Globe Gazette, is responsible for the content that lands in what is left of his newspaper.
Globe Gazette Editor David Mayberry attacked citizen Matt Marquardt and his business on April 7, 2017, as part of a Twitter rant directed at the Des Moines Register.
