Russo endorses Obama
A letter from Michael Russo that was sent out yesterday. Isn’t the Presidential election in November?
Today I write to you, reaffirming my commitment to changing the ways of old style politics and inefficient government, by reminding you to cast your ballot to elect Barack Obama as our next president of the United States.
I join Barack in believing that:
- We can unite Americans around a politics that puts attainable solutions ahead of partisan calculation and special interest groups;
- A strategic long-term investment in research, infrastructure, education, and training and workforce development can create new opportunities for all Americans, – especially the forgotten middle class!
- Our nation can lead in the fight to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and minimize the effect of climate change on our planet.
- Our nation can provide quality, affordable and portable health care to every American.
And together we have HOPE for a better America, a better world!
Join me at the Polls tomorrow, in electing Barack Obama as our next President! Vote column A all the way!
Councilman Michael Russo
Hoboken for Obama”
Make what you will of this press release from 3rd Ward Councilman Michael Russo. I just got the email 15 minutes ago, and already have received commentary that “he’s just riding the popularity of Barack Obama!”
(Note spelling in press release – Who is “Barck?” A dog?)
HOBOKEN COUNCILMAN MICHAEL RUSSO ENDORSES SEN. BARCK OBAMA FOR PRESIDENT
HOBOKEN, N.J./JANUARY 8, 2008-It is my honor and privilege to announce my support for Illinois Sen. Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination for the Presidency of the United States. Sen. Obama’s ability to inspire and speak to Americans of all ages and backgrounds to work for the common good of our great nation echoes the words of President John F. Kennedy.
Sen. Obama’s “Stand for Change” is a movement that is creating a new era in American politics. His truly inclusive vision for America transgresses racial, religious, socio-economic and political barriers. These qualities mirror my own vision as the Third Ward Councilman for the City of Hoboken.
Sen. Obama will be attending a rally at St. Peter’s College’s Yanitelli Center on John F. Kennedy Boulevard tomorrow, Wednesday, January 9th at 3:45 p.m. (doors open at 2:30 p.m.). Please join me and many other supporters from throughout New Jersey and the metropolitan area as we “rally for change” from the status quo and embrace the future of this great nation, the next President of the United States, Sen. Barack Obama.
