The good news about Halwick winning the Democratic nomination tonight is it will give me an excuse to spend a lot of time in Kingston this summer working to get my boy Mike Madsen elected Alderman of the 9th ward. Madsen who has the Independence line will primary for the Democratic line and I am confident that he will be successful in a Democratic primary this September. I congratulate Mr. Halwick of getting party insiders to support his candidacy but now lets let the people of Ward 9 decide! Majority Leader Bill Reynolds also vowed to support Alderman Madsen in his reelection bid!
I also would like to congratulate Jen Fuentas, a registered member of the Working Families Party, who received the Democratic endorsement to run in Ward 5. It looks like we will have a registered member of the WFP serving on the council for the first time in Kingston's history and we need to work hard to elect her.
Tom Hoffay also won handily over John Hoyt by a 6-1 margin!!!! Way to go Tom!
ALSO A VERY SPECIAL CONGRATULATIONS TO COUNTY LEGISLATOR ELECT TERRY BERNARDO
