McColgan says Oops!

Joe McColgan says two new billboards claiming that the Daily News and Inquirer endorsed him are based on outdated information. He's going to change them.

On two new billboards, at-large Republican City Council candidate Joseph McColgan says the Inquirer and Daily News endorsed him. That was true back in the May primary, but McColgan did not win those endorsements for the November general election.

The Inquirer learned about the billboards from a rival candidate. McColgan said he was unaware of them until the Inquirer asked. He said the mistake occurred after someone took oudated information from his campaign web site and incorporated it into the billboards. He's removing the incorrect information and replacing it with his button number.
