If Elected,  Paul Statti Will Be Bob Pyles' Puppet?

Did Statti write this letter to LCT editor praising Pyle in exchange for Pyles's endorsement? The timing appears to be about right with the upcoming election.

Paul Statti forgets that Jean Hodge had more than half the voters support in District 1, until the voting machine seal was broken. Will Hodge endorse Statti?
