The weekend before Stonecrest residents vote for their first mayor claims of dirty politics were being made.

On Saturday, a mailer that called Charles Hill mentally ill, bipolar and manic depressive was delivered in parts of DeKalb County.

It showed separate pictures of Hill and Anthony Hill, a veteran who was fatally shot two years ago by a DeKalb police officer who has since been indicted.

Charles Hill, one of the candidates running for mayor of Stonecrest, released a statement Sunday saying there is no link between him and Anthony Hill.

He also says he doesn’t suffer from any sort of mental problem.

Hill has scheduled a press conference for later Monday morning to address the issue in person.

Stonecrest’s mayoral election is Tuesday.
