Eppley Says Voters Want Civility on Gov’s Council
[The following press release was submitted on behalf of Governor's Council candidate David Eppley.]
On Tuesday, July 31, David Eppley a Salem attorney and Democratic candidate for the 5th District Governor’s Council race pledged to answer the call for civility on the Governor’s Council. Eppley said that as he had made his way through each of the 38 cities and towns and has taken the time to speak to many voters.
Eppley said that when talking about the Governor’s Council he found that many voters were interested in restoring some civility to the council. At the beginning of this campaign, candidate David Eppley promised that his campaign team would continue to reach out to voters across the district to promote his message of bringing much needed civility back to the Governor’s Council.
After talking with thousands of voters through phone banking and going door-to-door Eppley agrees that now is the time for civility.
“We have spent the last few months reaching out to as many voters as we can. After speaking with thousands of voters myself it has never been clearer to me that civility is desperately needed on this council.”
Eppley went on to explain that “the voters are tired of being represented by politicians that lack respect when interviewing candidates for judgeship.”
A Lawrence resident and voter Laura Santana agreed, saying: “The Governor’s Council has been lacking civility for the past few years. David Eppley is the only candidate that promises us he will bring some much needed respect back to the council.”
Eppley is one of four Democratic candidates that have declared candidacy in the race. Eppley admitted that the contest is a low-profile race, which makes it so much more important to reach out to the voters and explain to them that “the 'gotcha' politics have got to go. We need civility and respect in our courtrooms and in the council’s hearings.”
Eppley has decided to start a video blog to reach out to as many voters as possible. Eppley wants the voters to know that each and every one of the 38 cities and towns is important when it comes to judicial appointments. “This is a perfect way to keep the voters informed on why I am running for the Governor’s Council, and keep them updated on our campaign.”
Eppley encourages anyone interested in his campaign for civility to follow his Facebook page or visit his website at www.davideppley.org . The statewide Primary Election will be held on Thursday, Sept. 6. Eppley encourages all voters to go out and vote.
