WPCNR BACKROOM BULLETIN. By John F. Bailey June 12, 2014 UPDATED 9:30 P.M E.D.T.:
With 3 hours to go until Thursday night’s midnight deadline, Brian Maloney, the head of the White Plains Republican Committee has extended his call this week for persons to step forward and express their desire to run on the Republican Ticket in the fall Special Election for Common Council through Sunday.
Moments ago Mr. Maloney issued this statement to WPCNR:
“because of people requesting to be considered, we have pushed our date before our final decision to Sunday night.”
Mr. Maloney, head of White Plains Republican Party posted an invitation on the White Plains Republican Party website on Sunday, June 8, saying, (after four months since Nadine Hunt-Robinson was appointed to former Councilman, now County Legislator, Benjamin Boykin’s seat on the Council), the GOP is still looking for a candidate to run for Common Council.
The following invitation was posted in a Click-Thru ad on Facebook June 8 and has been up for 4 days. No press release was sent to media announcing this “citywide candidate search,” nor was any news conference held announcing the unique availablity, tonight he has extended that deadline through midnight, Sunday night.
Get White Plains Back On Track!
The White Plains Republican City Committee announces its final call for candidates for the office of White Plains Common Council.
In order to be considered, a candidate need not be a Republican, simply a dedicated White Plains resident.
In order to be considered, a candidate must:
1) Be a registered voter and a resident of the City of White Plains for two years;
2) Be prepared to articulate the candidate’s vision of White Plains; and
3) Call 646-397-4675 or email: email@example.com.
Council membership is a part time job that includes family healthcare, a salary and additional benefits. Candidates are also invited to submit any additional material they consider relevant to support their nomination.
Requests for consideration must be submitted by: June 12, 2014.
Brian G. Maloney,
This is a unique opportunity to assure a place on the ballot opposite Nadine Hunt-Robinson if you are a registered Democrat and wish to oppose her, without running a primary. Several disgruntled Democrats, one of whom expected to be appointed to the position, might take advantage of this opportunity, as well as councilpersons of the past, no longer on the council, and are itching to get back on.
You have 13 hours and 10 minutes to make that call.
