Halter mailed an informational newsletter last summer. It naturally presented Halter in a very positive light. But for it to be campaign purposes, the commission decided, it needed to be overtly for campaign purposes, according to a letter it adopted in the vote. No campaign was underway at the time, it's worth noting.
