Former mayoral candidate Jaimie Charon today endorsed write-in candidate Jody Harding in the May 5 election.
“With the election just days away, I wanted to let those who supported me in the primary know where I stand on the mayor’s contest,” Charon said. “I have had the opportunity to speak with Jody on the issues regarding Racine and the job at hand for the next mayor. With our similar position on KRM, the strong desire to help improve education and to be more fiscally conservative with taxpayers' money, I believe Jody Harding is the only candidate in this race that offers Racine our best options.”
According to Charon, who came in last in the primary, “We need and are asking for change in Racine – Jody is the person who will provide that change.”
Harding expressed her appreciation, saying “It isn’t easy to buck the trend and show support for a dark horse candidate.”
The election ballot pits Bob Turner against John Dickert; Harding, who came in 7th of 11 in the April 7 primary, has registered as an official write-in candidate.
