Here's Fay's full release:
I am running for mayor of Racine because I feel I can offer our citizens an effective and honest city leader. Right now we are at a crossroad - the spot between the down hill road that we have been on and the opportunity to reinvigorate our city with a new administration. This special election for mayor has proven to be a call for change.
I have declared my candidacy for mayor because I see Racine as a community with a rich past and a great future. However, our former administration has shown that they did not have the moral fiber to lead our city in the direction or manner that we deserve.
Racine needs a moral compass at city hall. I will put the city’s needs above my own. My first priority will be to run Racine’s city government fairly and efficiently.
As a former County Board Supervisor representing the 4th District, and as the former County Executive Assistant, under the leadership of Dennis Kornwolf, I helped run an effective and efficient county government. I am running for mayor because I have the experience, the drive and the ability to lead this city in the right direction.
