Promotion Don’t: Elected Officials Problematic Pizzeria Stumpers
Here's a cautionary promotional "don't" for election week. Three not-so-with-it town officials in Neenah, Wisconsin, were advised to cease and desist after appearing in ads for Broken Tree Pizza that ran in a Fox Cities newspaper in recent months. Postcrescent.com reports Mayor Dean Kaufert, Fire Chief Al Auxier and Alderwoman Cari Lendrum were photographed holding a pizza with their names and government titles identified in ads in the Scene, a Fox Cities monthly. Neenah City Attorney Jim Godlewski may enjoy Broken Tree Pizza's brick oven, wood-fired pies, but he put the stop to the unpaid endorsements after learning about the ads last week. "It's a matter of good practice not to be advocating for a specific business because who do you say 'yes' to, and who do you say 'no' to?" Godlewski says. "I advised them not to do it again."
