JAMESTOWN – The Democrat candidate for City of Jamestown Mayor announced Wednesday he has been endorsed by former Jamestown Mayor, New York Lieutenant Governor and Congressman Stan Lundine.
Eddie Sundquist says he is honored and humbled to receive the longtime lawmaker’s endorsement.
“Stan understands my vision for Jamestown, a city centered around collaborating with our partners, neighbors, and businesses to revitalize our economy while providing decisive leadership to face the challenges ahead,” said Sundquist. “Together, we will move Jamestown towards an exciting and innovative future.”
Lundine’s career in public service spanned more than 24 years. The former mayor said in order to be a successful Mayor of Jamestown the candidate must be capable and committed. That is something Sundquist is according to Lundine.
“Eddie has demonstrated these qualities, and has put forth a positive vision for Jamestown’s future,” explained Lundine. “I support his candidacy.”
Earlier this year, longtime Jamestown Mayor Sam Teresi announced his retirement. Teresi spent 20 years in his position, running unopposed at times.
Sundquist will face Libertarian Candidate Andrew Liuzzo and Republican Dave Wilfong in the November 5 election.
