Halloween reminds us that fun and laughter is essential. I dressed up as Manny Ramirez at a Halloween Party for children at the Willett School on Sunday. I wore a Manny Ramirez wig, my baseball cap and a genuine Red Sox Manny uniform. It was a blast!
The race for city councilor feels extremely close. This is due to a close race in signs, my perception that many people like my message for children, excellent education and caring about seniors. A number of people are delighted I’m appearing at their door. My name recognition is fairly good. We are in for a tight race.
I don’t know who is reading this but I am making a plea to anyone who wants me in office.
Please reach out to TWO PEOPLE that haven’t yet made up their mind, urging them to vote for me. You may think this is unnecessary, to the contrary, it is critically important.
When I was in my mid-20’s I voted for a U.S. Senator candidate in New Hampshire. The vote turned out to be a dead tie. NH could not determine the winner in an age of paper ballots. The ballots finally were sent to the US Supreme Court for a final result. The Supreme Court could not make a decision and called the vote a tie.
One year after the original vote in 1974 another election was held in October, 1975 to determine the final victor. This time, John Durkin was elected to the United States Senate.
So let’s imagine the Attleboro vote for city council is a dead tie. If you speak to two people over the weekend and ask them to vote for me that could be crucial. If 20 people are reading this message that could produce 40 additional votes.
Perhaps I appear greedy and too competitive. I’ve given my life to this campaign since mid-June. I believe I can be helpful for children and seniors if I am elected to the Council. The two votes you can potentially send my way could make all the difference.
Meanwhile, I will knock on doors at least five hours a day through Monday. But I need your help.
