Many of you have watched Niagara Falls Mayoral Candidate Seth Piccirillo’s newest campaign video regarding temperament. If not, you can find it here: https://www.facebook.com/317643839068295/posts/491475895018421?s=100023811975792&v=e&sfns=mo.
In the video Piccirillo refers to “temperament” as “separating true serving leaders from politicians.” He goes on to say that, “I know that I have the temperament to serve you just as I know my opponent does not.”
However, in a February 5th, 2019, campaign video, Piccirillo had a starkly different message, stating, “we’ve all seen how opposition is usually done in a political campaign. It’s second hand. It’s cowardly. We’re not going to do that. I’m not going to rely on  surrogates, paid journalism or anonymous mailers to deliver direct talk. That’s just not me. I’m also not going to spend a whole lot of time talking about my opponents.”
As it turns out, the truthfulness of Piccirillo’s February 5th statement did not last until primary day.
