This letter is for a local resident who wants to counteract the positive direct mail of a campaign by telling local people some unpleasant things about a candidate.

<Recipient Address Goes Here>
As you probably are aware, <candidate name> is running for <office>. As the election draws nearer, I'm trying to let people know that while the all-smiles direct mail letters and political ads may paint <him/her> out to be a saint, <candidate name> has another side that you should know about before you vote for <him/her> as <office>.
These are just some of the reasons why I am firmly against <candidate name> in <his/her> campaign for <office>. They aren't things that <he/she> wants you to know, but they're critical for making an intelligent voting decision. Take a closer look at <candidate name>. When you do, I think you'll change your mind. I did.
Thank you for your time.
