JAMESTOWN – No matter who wins this November, Jamestown will have a new mayor. The City of Jamestown Democratic Committee is hoping it is local Attorney Eddie Sundquist.
The Committee endorsed Sundquist and a slate of candidates at Thursday evening’s meeting.
“We are excited to endorse Eddie because of his commitment to Jamestown and its citizens. As a Jamestown native and young professional in our community, Eddie will be a powerful advocate for our City, and I’m confident he will be a strong leader,” Committee Chairman Jim Walton said.
“I believe in the strength of Jamestown and our ability to meet future challenges head on. We are a city with a rich history and strong foundation, fueled by people who are passionate about this community. I want to capitalize on these strengths as we step forward into new opportunities. Jamestown has an exciting future ahead and I want to help us get there,” said Sundquist.
Along with Sundquist, who will head the Democratic ticket, the Jamestown City Committee also endorsed the following council members positions:
Jamestown City Council At-Large: Tamu Graham-Reinhardt, Gregory Rabb, At-Large and Taylor Scott.
Ward Council candidates are as follows:
Tim Smeal, Ward I; Tom Vitale, Ward II; Vickye James , Ward III; Marie Carruba, Ward IV; Maria Jones, Ward V and Tom Nelson, Ward VI.
Joining the Jamestown team are endorsed county legislator incumbent Chuck Nazzaro (District 9) and candidate Bob Whitney (District 11).
A rally is being planned to formally announce Sundquist and other endorsed Democrats on Feb. 28, at 4 p.m. at the Chadakoin River scenic overlook on the Jamestown River Walk (across from McCrea Point.)
