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.
