THE SEPTEMBER 10
FOR MAYOR OF ALBANY
Media spin on the primary leads
voters to believe there are only
two contenders - Sheehan
and Ellis- and that Sheehan has
a commanding lead according to
a YNN/Siena poll.
Albany Democratic primaries
are dominated by the leftist
"progressives" who have co-opted
control of the Democratic Party
which once stood for upholding
the Constitution and State's Rights.
That Democratic Party was also

These Reagan Democrats tend
not to vote in primaries because
the Democratic Party does not
usually present candidates who
are more in tune with the views
of those Reagan Democrats.
The Democratic Party of today
is not the party of Dan O'Connell.
The Reagan-O'Connell Democrats
still exist in sufficient numbers in
Albany and could change the
outcome of the

Be sure to print and stay within
the borders of the write in box on
the ballot for Mayor, City of Albany.
Why Sullivan and not Sheehan or
Sullivan was an enrolled Democrat
first appointed committeman by
Dan O' Connell. Sullivan was a
pal to Charlie Ryan, Dick Conners
Howard Nolan and many more
oldtimers. He has been active in
Albany politics for 38 years.
Sullivan was a bartender in Frank
Commisso's Madison Ave tavern.
Corey Ellis was still in pull ups.
Kathy Sheehan and Patricia Fahy
toddlers living in Chicago- back then.
Sullivan has served as President of
the Buckingham Pond/Crestwood
Neighborhood Association for nearly
a third of a century - saving many
open spaces, defeating proposals to
build big box stores, fast food joints
an apartment tower, a third middle
school and conversion of Mercy Convent
to an office building-as well as many
other land use changes that would
have altered the residential integrity
and quality life in that neighborhood.
Sullivan has asked Mayor Jennings
to stay on as Mayor Emeritus in a
Sullivan administration. Jerry would
serve as liaison with the Governor
and State Legislature, The City schools
and conduct all ceremonial functions
including continuance of his successful
Alive at Five concerts.
Mayor Emeritus Jennings would
continue to have a high profile in
the City he loves and he would be
free of all political constraints.
Sullivan has let it be known that
current city workers and their
families can rest easy. The jobs
of city workers who perform their
jobs well, will be secure.
Sullivan puts America and Albany
before political party allegiance.
Sullivan will honor his oath of
office to uphold the Constitution
especially the First, Second, Fourth
and Tenth Amendments.
His focus will be on keeping Albany
secure and safe; consolidating the
city schools with city government
with one property tax roll to support
both, returning Albany to a K-8
neighborhood school system; main-
taining/improving residential integrity
quality of life in neighborhoods; jobs
and property tax relief resulting from
advocacy of natural gas drilling
tapping hydro electric power from
the 765 KV line being built from
Quebec to NYC; a refinery at the
Port of Albany to refine Baakan oil
being transshipped via the port-
and much more:

We shall know the answers to these

of Albany in the November 5
