I received this e-mail from Jody Edinger, I think Jody is doing the right thing for the party, this guy would have made an excellent Alderman. I look forward to him running for office in the future.
After careful thought and consideration, I have decided I will not be a candidate for Alderman in Ward 7. With a very formidable Republican running in the November election, I feel it is important as Democrats that we stand united behind one candidate; so we can continue the great work and progress we have had under the leadership of our current Alderman Bill Reynolds.
Mary Ann Mills is someone that is very active in the community and someone that shares the values and vision that I feel are important in moving Kingston forward. I am confident that Ms. Mills will work hard to improve the quality of life for Kingstonians, keep their taxes at sustainable levels, while making sure services are provided to the ward. I urge my supporters and fellow residents to support Shayne Gallo for Mayor and Mary Ann Mills for Alderman of Ward 7.
