The votes have been counted. All the wings and spicy shrimp and chips are all eaten, and the “Vote For Me” street signs have all gone and I’m left wondering how such a great guy miss the mark.
You gotta see his video—> Ramuntu For Mayor <—–Click there!
I voted for this guy BECAUSE:
- Proven record of leadership
- He thinks before he speaks
- He does what he says he’ll do. I don’t always like it but I know what to expect.
- Great line up of supporters
- He LOVES Charlotte
As a back up, I had just two other candidates I considered voting for the mayor seat. It was DAVID Howard and Jennifer Roberts. Here’s what news since last night election.
Exhausted, emotional, tired, disappointed are all words that could describe how I feel this morning…..and to some extent, I have felt them all. However the overriding feeling I have this morning is one of PRIDE! My campaign was counted out so many times since we started in January, and yet we raised over $250,000 and came so close to forcing a run-off. We also introduced and shared a progressive and pragmatic vision for moving Charlotte, a city I love with all my heart – forward.
I have received dozens of well wishes and thoughts since last night…..and will respond to every one of them. I just wanted to say that Mary and I could not be more appreciative of the hard work everyone put into making the ‘HOWARD FOR MAYOR’ campaign one we can all be proud of. It was based on real ideas for real people. One of integrity, dedication, compassion and focused on keeping Charlotte competitive for decades to come.
I’m not sure what comes next, but am excited about having that conversation with God. Stay tuned, and again THANK YOU everyone that volunteered, worked and/or that prayed for the ‘HOWARD FOR MAYOR’ campaign.
And my other is favorite: Jennifer Roberts.
Good luck to whom ever wins the Mayor of Charlotte race.
The 2016 presidential election is still several months away from now. We can still make further and deeper research to know who really is the one who will become the best president for our country.
Let us vote based on the capability, effectiveness and efficiency of the person, not on his or her popularity. Let’s vote for a president who will develop, not only our own province, but our whole country. Let’s support leaders, not because we are their solid loyalists, but because they can provide solid services.
Let’s elect leaders who will transform our nation into progress, not leaders who will transport our money to their pockets.
Ooh, and if you ever run into Cornell West, tell him he’s the greatest!!! He’s been traveling with Bernie. I met him at Winthrop the other Sunday. See how it went! (Click here)
