Dear Milton Neighbor,
Thank you for supporting me for re-election to the Milton City Council. Your support is tremendous and I am forever humbled by the support everyone has shown me. It is my continued honor to serve all of Milton.
It is important that everyone in Milton vote November 3, 2009. In order to preserve our community for the next 20 years, we must continue to elect leaders who have the interest of our community at heart; leaders will remain strong when political pressure is on; leaders who will vote to support the law and our land use plans even when development pressures are strong. Yes, we need funding for our city, but we have many options and do not need to lose sight of the reason we incorporated as a city: Local control to preserve and protect our diverse, rural lifestyle. I have not changed my vision for Milton....if you love the diverse cultural character of Milton, do something to support the vision.
This week, my political opponents filed an ethics complaint against me. I have previously stated that I did nothing unethical or inappropriate. This complaint, filed by former Milton Council Member Neil O'brien, is politically motivated and conveniently timed less than two weeks before the election to discredit me. I was a staunch supporter of Mr. O'brien's challenger Council Member Burt Hewitt in the 2007 election. Mr. O'brien is also a supporter of my opponent Joe Longoria. In addition, Mr. O'brien supports Council Members Karen Thurman and Bill Lusk, and I am on record supporting their respective challengers, Bernard Wolff and Al Trevillyan, in the current election. This is an obvious attempt to hurt me. But, it will not work. I will stand strong for you, the citizens of Milton. I would never knowingly do anything unethical or to hurt my community and my friends and constituents.
A provision in the Milton Ethics Ordinance makes it illegal to lodge a frivolous or politically motivated ethics complaint against a council member or other city official (see below or visit www.cityofmiltonga.us for the Ethics Ordinance). I am confident that this complaint will ultimately be dismissed following an investigation and that Mr. O'Brien will be held accountable for what is obviously an effort to cast a shadow over my outstanding record of accomplishments and service to our city during this election.
I uphold the law and make the best decisions for the citizens and the community while remaining fiscally conservative with your tax dollars. If you would like to discuss this allegation with me, please call me or send me an email. I would love to meet with you.
It is apparent to me today more than ever that Milton needs Tina D'Aversa.
Vote November 3, 2009, Tina D'Aversa, a leader you can trust to support you and the vision of Milton!
Protecting and Preserving ALL of Milton, Tina D'Aversa

In 2006, I provided my clear vision of Milton: Preserving our equestrian heritage and diverse lifestyles, managing and funding appropriate growth.
I have listened to the citizens of Milton and, my vision is the same in 2009 as the day I came to Milton.
