"The Idea Man" -- "The Big Issue Candidate"

In the last 24 hours, there have been some quotes from the Daily Freeman and Kingston Times that I was very pleased with. The comments summed up my campaign quite well.

The Daily Freeman wrote:

"Rich Cahill has served as a Republican lawmaker in the past. He has been perhaps the most outspoken during the days leading up to the primary, putting out various positions on topics although not without critics taking swipes at the ideas. He has said that some people love him. Some people hate him. He is hoping to garner the Republican and Conservative lines in Tuesday's Primary."

Hugh Reynolds of the Kingston Times wrote that I have "reinvented myself as the idea man, the guy who really understands what goes down at City Hall, the big issue candidate".

Of of the First Ward Alderman, Hugh wrote, "Turco-Levin, by comparison, played small ball, talking about smoking in the parks, sidewalks, ethic panels, etc. Her one notable excursion into major policy, when she attempted to plug into public dismay over school district shenanigans by suggesting the city investigate fiscal irregularities, left people wondering whether she really understood the duties and boundaries of the mayor's office."

I can only hope the electorate sees it the same way as the local media.

Many people who know me or listen to me on the radio or read my Freeman letters know that I want to make Kingston a better place for young adults to work, buy homes and get better jobs right here in Kingston. In order for this goal to happen, we need changes in Kingston by people who are knowledgeable and who are truthful about the situation here. In other words, we need honest action by honest people. To help my goals for the future of young adults to come and stay and work and prosper in Kingston, I want to urge Republicans to vote for Rich Cahill for mayor in Tuesday’s Primary election.

Ideas -

Is there any single page where all of these "in-writing" plans can be found so one might peruse them to make an educated choice tomorrow?
