Friends Of Harrison P.A.C. Posted July 13, 2006 Report Share Posted July 13, 2006 Anselmo Millan for Mayor Date: June 12, 2006 Democracy wins in Harrison Harrison voters will not be denied a choice in November In what can only be described as a major victory for voters, Mayoral candidate Anselmo Millan emerged victorious in his court battle against Mayor Raymond McDonough, and will be on the ballot in the November Election. In his ruling yesterday, Honorable Carmen Messano stated that the objections raised by County Clerk Inclan and Ray McDonough were flawed and that the laws were written “to allow the greatest scope for public participation in the electoral process, to allow candidates to get on the ballot, to allow parties to put their candidates on the ballot, and most importantly to allow the voters a choice on Election Day.” Citing Catania v. Haberle Raymond McDonough filed his protest to the Anselmo Millan candidacy when he learned that Millan signed a petition for his Democratic primary opponent Michael John Hinchcliffe. “It is disturbing to me that a current elected official would try to deny voters a choice on Election Day. It is disturbing that Ray McDonough would rather attack Democracy than defend his record as Mayor of Harrison.” said Mayoral candidate Anselmo Millan “It’s time to begin communicating our solutions to the issues that affect us, and let the voters decide whether or not they want a fresh start.” "McDonough should have nothing to worry about if he can defend his record & accomplishments as Mayor and he shouldn't deny the people of Harrison a choice. Thats was simply an example of abusing his powers as Mayor using the town attorney's at tax payers expense." Anselmo Millan is a long-time resident and former 2nd Ward Councilman in Harrison. Anselmo is seeking the office of Mayor as an independent candidate and has been an open critic of Ray McDonough’s plan to use taxpayer money for a soccer stadium, and for the unplanned residential development in Harrison. other candidates: Maria Camano 1st Ward Steven McCormick 2nd Ward Joseph Wood 4th Ward Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
