Calling all Albany friends...I met a GREAT guy today who just happens to be running for Mayor of Albany. He works in my building, and I was fortunate enough to sit down with him today and pick his brain a little. He is Republican, and I am a democrat, but I believe in him enough to put out this endorsement. So all I am asking is that you check out Jesse Calhoun's page. Read up on him and see what you think. Albany needs a positive intervention. I believe Jesse would be just that. Thank you all in advance.

Hello Friends and family in Albany. As you know, the mayoral election for Albany is coming up. I know that Albany heavily votes democratic, but I urge you to consider Jesse Calhoun. I am still getting to know him as a friend, but at this point, I am willing to entrust the responsibility of leadership to him. I think it will take people willing to try a different direction for the sake of a better future for a great place to live. But most of all, please exercise your right to vote. For years the Black community has willingly enslaved themselves by not voting and more importantly asking the hard questions of why we vote for a person or party. End the slavery, know why your candidate is the best candidate and vote your values. We have to be more than just our color. The great civil rights leaders dreamed of a day when it was not about color. That dream was not a one way street either. We should not vote because someone is the same color or sex as us like was harped on in the most recent democratic debate between candidates in Albany. We are more than our color, we should be talked to as such. Let us talk about fatherless homes, safe communities, joblessness, home ownership and becoming entrepreneur and sending our kids to college. Ask what candidates are talking about those things. We don't need people who are just going to help us tolerate the muck we live in today. We don't need people who want to help us get more assistance from the government so that we become dependent on them, thus enslaving a voting block to ensure they keep power. Get rid of the chains, show your voice, show up and vote http://www.calhounformayor.com/about/
