City Council candidate Dawn Lloyd claimed in an online voter guide that she has military experience because her husband – who is actually her ex-husband – was in the military.
But then she realized the information was “wrong” and requested an immediate change.
Lloyd, who serves on the city’s liquor board, sent The Gazette an e-mail last night asking that her response under “military experience” be changed to “none.”
“PLEASE! Delete the military info on my profile immediately. It is wrong,” Lloyd wrote. “I don’t want to be misleading to the public. I was trying to point out that I had been affiliated with the military as a spouse of 19 years.”
Lloyd also clarified that she is no longer married to John Michael Lahoff, a retired lieutenant colonel.
“OOPS!” she wrote. “My current husband might think I’m a bigamist, HA HA.”
This morning, Lloyd requested that her response under “military experience” be changed yet again.
“Here is what I would like to communicate in the military section of my candidate profile,” she wrote.
“I was married to an Air Force Officer /Air Force Academy graduate (Lt Col Retired, John Michael Lahoff) from 1980-1999. We moved to Colorado Springs in 1993 for an assignment with Space Command at Peterson AFB. I know the military lifestyle from the perspective of a spouse. Our family experienced 11 assignments over a 19 year period, including 2 overseas.”
