Dan: Hit pieces coming?

In the comments section, Dan English writes:

"I know there has been some speculation about any last minute "hit" pieces by candidates, or more commonly, people who are willing to have their hands dirty on behalf of candidates.

"Even if I were not a candidate, I would say the same thing--I sure hope not. If you believe in something strong enough, please own it, just come out and say it, say clearly who you are, and do it in a timely manner for sake of the legitimacy of your message and the voters.

"This is one reason why I am so in favor of folks voting early by mail or in-person absentee ballot. Since so many votes are already in the pipeline before any last minute attacks can come out it really undercuts their whole purpose which is to throw a sensational dirt bomb on the other guy but do it when you think it is too late for a response.

"...6 days and counting, please vote and if possible vote early."

Question: Do you expect a hit piece against any of the council candidates to hit mailboxes in the next 6 days?
