I was informed by County Conservative Chairman, Ed Gaddy, that the Conservative Party has endorsed my candidacy for Mayor of the City of Kingston. I am very pleased to receive the support of the Conservative Party. This is another important step toward my goal of becoming Mayor of the City of Kingston.
The County Conservatives interviewed me and two of my Republican opponents this past Monday night. The questions were insightful and well thought out. I just answered their questions and set forth details of my comprehensive plan for the City of Kingston. I was informed that the Conservatives chose me without a dissenting vote. That was particularly pleasing.
The City Republicans will hold their nominating convention in late May or early June. I am hopeful of obtaining their endorsement as well. I have received a great deal of support from the committeemen and I am looking forward to the convention. The support just keeps growing and growing.
In the days ahead, I intend to focus like a laser on my comprehensive plan for the city. I will not allow myself to be distracted by negative politics, nor will I waste time with proposals to ban yard sales, cats, or cigarettes. I am dealing with issues of crime, taxes, city spending, jobs, and the local economy. That is what people in Kingston have told me are the issues important to them.
