Kingston Committee Drafts Mihm for Election's Post


The Kingston City Democratic Committee unanimously voted tonight to draft Kathy Mihm to be the next Democratic Election's Commissioner. The vote took place after Peter Loughran said that he would support Kathy for the top spot. " Kathy has 20 years as Deputy and has the hands down experience for the job, if she is running than she has my full support, said Loughran." Chairman David Donaldson also expressed his support, "whatever you need Kathy, I am here for you." Kathy had previously received the support of outgoing Commish John Parete.


Kathy Mihm was humbled and gratified by her support and seemed excited. Her home committee was equally excited and united behind her candidacy. Kathy, who served for many years in the BOE earned a reputation as being someone that candidates could go to and someone that they could trust. Kathy, who is respected by the other side of the aisle, is also feared, they know they are not going to get anything by her, she knows all the tricks in the book. It was also clear tonight that her heart is still at the BOE, I wish her the best of luck.

so is she definitely running? or is she being drafted? there's a big difference and (as you know, JB) if she decides against it, there is an equally outstanding candidate out there.

BT - why not use the photo in the NP Times instead of this interesting photo of a girl looking under your skirt?

Kathy is running. The committee urged (drafted) her to run and she accepted the challenge. Kathy has a reputation of being fair, honest and there is no one that knows the in's and out's of the petition process better than Kathy. I urge everyone to support her effort.

9:54, my mother is cleaning spiders off me at my sister's rehearsal dinner. I don't have the rights to the NP Times photo. Besides, I like this one.

Who is this Brittany Turner and wher did she come from. I hear she's this big labor person, but she looks kind of young.

No one can match experience with Kathy Mihm. Finally, someone who is qualified for a job and deserves it! This is a no brainer.

I'm supporting Kathy...but why the hell did she vote to nominate a republican for judge in the 3rd Judicial District over Dem Pat McGrath?
