What A “Class Act” Looks Like


Announces a Moratorium on Campaign Media Efforts

(JOHNSTOWN, PA) – Responding to the sudden and unfortunate announcement of the death of Rep. John Murtha (D-PA-12th), GOP challenger William Russell has asked all citizens, Republicans, Democrats and Independents to come together and pray for Joyce and the Murtha family as they deal with the tragic loss of husband, father and grandfather. “While Mr. Murtha and I were political combatants in every sense, our family and campaign team asks you to keep the Murtha family in your thoughts and prayers,” said Russell. “Regardless of your political position, you always knew Jack had an immense love and loyalty to his family and the residents of the12th Congressional District.

The Russell campaign is immediately initiating a moratorium on all political media activity for the next five days in respect of the passing of John Murtha. The campaign will also remove all political references to Mr. Murtha on the Russellbrigade.com website immediately.

It is the wish of the William Russell for Congress Committee, that the passing of Mr. Murtha be treated with the utmost respect and decency by all, especially in the media and weblogs.

The above appears at the website of a Republican challenger for Congress from Pennsylvania, one William Russell. As stated, the content of this page expects to be returned to normal after an appropriate interim. This wirter had the opportunity to speak with the gentleman at some length about a year ago, concerning the political scene in the Keystone State. At this time, and inasmuch as Pennsylvania is expected to lose congressional seats after the next census, a redistricting may or may not affect Russell's future plans. In the meantime, he is a class act in person as well.
