There's a puzzling mailout making it's way to Fort Saskatchewan homes and businesses.
 
A postcard calls a vote for Gale Katchur, a vote for the NDP.
 
Response condemming the postal card was swift on social media, with one of Katchur's posts calling it "the last straw for dirty politics."
 
The card claims several elected provincial and federal New Democrat officials requested Katchur's lawn signs, questioning the association.
 
MLA Jessica Littlewood called it a "smear campaign" in her response on Facebook, saying she'll "always go after policy, not people."
 
Mayoral candidate Arjun Randhawa posted to social media, saying his campaign had nothing to do with the card, condemming the "negative campaigning going on in this election." Judy Sellin said she was "shocked" at the mailout and those responsible for the mailout "must be desperate for someone to win."
 
Council candidate Stuart McGowan responded on social media, calling the mailout "low."
 
A post on the Fort Sask Informed Facebook page by Katchur garnered upwards of 500 replies before the comments were turned off by administration.
 
No one has come forward to claim the mailout yet.
