The Dispatch reports that Bill Todd’s campaign aides “got aggressive” with city employees after a Hilltop-area pastor wouldn’t allow Todd and his people to film a political commercial in his church.

According to a city worker, Todd’s people started “grabbing at their identification badges and accusing them of campaigning for the mayor on city time.”

The Rev. Augusto Abila, pastor of Roca de la Salvacion church on W. Broad Street, said “we don’t make politics in the church” as his reason for denying access to Todd and his film crew.
