Dear friends and neighbors,
Thank you all for coming out this evening and for your continued interest in the betterment of our great city, Mount Vernon.
Unfortunately, this evening, the Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee (MVDCC) endorsed candidates will not be attending the forum taking place at the Riverside Chapel.
After informing the Fleetwood Citizens’ Society(FCS) that the MVDCC Candidates were unavailable, the leadership of FCS decided they would continue to conduct the forum this evening without the MVDCC endorsed candidates. Please also note there is only one candidate on the podium this evening that is actually on the ballot for September 12, 2017. This is a calculated effort by the leadership of FCS to deny the MVDCC endorsed candidates a fair opportunity to discuss the issues of Mount Vernon to the community at large.
As was stated to FCS leadership, the MVDCC candidates are more than prepared to debate any other candidates on a mutually agreed upon date. We will not be bullied into a forum that was not agreed upon. We hope you will continue to support the MVDCC candidates.
Cathlin B. Gleason
2nd Vice Chairwoman
Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee
