Today during the noon hour I will do the HOTLINE show as always and this afternoon, I plan on filing nominating petitions to run for reelection as Mayor of the City of Watertown.
That being the case, I will not be hosting the HOTLINE until after the election. This is a proper decision for a broadcast outlet as these are public airwaves and candidacies pose too many problems in the quest for compliance and fairness.
While I will miss the daily discourse, and nobody likes giving up a job even temporarily, my absence will be most fair to the process of electing a mayor.
Keep calling as those filling the void in the weeks to come will need your continued support.
Best wishes, and I look forward to talking to many of you individually during the campaign ahead !
