By guest blogger, Pete Kosovich, candidate for Franklin alderman, 4th district
I've been working the doors, 5-6 hours a day on weekends, and printing, folding & planning during the week. I'm receiving very positive responses at the doors, and have spoken to many great people. Elections are April 5th. They're coming fast. I'm ready.
I have seen my opponents first two pieces. Real pretty! Colorful, glossy and with pictures too! WOW!
He implies that as an Alderman, I wasn't vocal & assertive enough. I have been vocal & assertive when necessary, without sounding pompous, arrogant & disrespectfull.
His pieces make it sound as if I was soundly thrashed and thrown out in disgrace. FALSE! I only lost by 10 votes. The weekend before the election, there were people that didn't know I had an opponent. Months after the election, I was still receiving calls from constituents who thought I was their Alderman. Mayor TOM Taylor was in a high profile Mayoral race, and people were anxious to vote for
I was asked a question from a constituant. What differentiates me from my opponent? I answered, I am not a career politician. I am a small business owner in
I have been asked at the doors, am I a Democrat or Republican. I answer, I am a Conservative, Christian, Republican, & I support what Scott Walker is doing to bring our fiscal house in order. This may upset some, but you know where I stand. I won't suck up for a Union endorsement.
Wednesday March 16th. there will be a candidates forum at The Franklin Library at 6:30. The MC will be blogger John Michlig. We'll see if he can be fair and unbiased. I was called by a supporter who was concerned that I might be set up. I said I would be there, but If I sense that is the case, I won't participate.
I believe no one is perfect, but I am trying. I'm working hard to win your confidence & your vote. Please be sure to vote April 5th for Pete Kosovich, 4th District Alderman. I won't disappoint you!
