Please Vote

With one day left before the election, I know the way it is supposed to go. I am supposed to say whatever I can to get your votes. I am supposed to take down my opponents and question their integrity. I am supposed to do and say anything I can to win your vote. I have not done that in my campaign, and I will not do it now. In this election there are three men running; Mr. Adrieansen, Mr. Doyle, and myself. I have stood next to these men and faced the community. While we disagree on some issues we all agree this town needs a change and needs to get out from under the heels of its current dictator. There is not a doubt in my mind that any one of us three will make a great mayor in our own way. This is where I should ask for your vote. Do not get me wrong; I want your vote, but more importantly I just want you to vote. This town needs you to, this town needs a change. This town needs you to say you will not take any more of its current tyrant or his henchmen. If your vote goes for me I will do all I can to make you proud of your choice, but please I beg you all just go out and vote. Thank you .  (Apr 8, 2013 | post #1)

Heard Hunt pulled out of the race??

I haven’t pulled out. As much as some of my opponents wish I would. I am still plugging away dealing with the weekly rumors and being amazed at the depths some of my opponents are willing to sink. As always you can ask any questions on my Facebook page (http://www.facebo ok.com/pages/Donal d-R-Hunt-for-Mayor /295025787280169), or you can email me and I will get back to you. Donaldrhuntformayo r@yahoo.com Thank you.  (Mar 16, 2013 | post #3)

Donald Hunt for mayor?

I would love a debate, and I have approached most of the other candidates and let’s just say a debate of one isn't much of a debate. The only thing I can say is please feel free to go on my Facebook page and ask questions. I realize it isn't the best way to go about something as important as this position should be to all of us. https://www.facebo ok.com/pages/Donal d-R-Hunt-for-Mayor /295025787280169  (Feb 19, 2013 | post #16)

Donald Hunt for mayor?

Normally I make it a rule not to reply to anyone on here that is so cowardly that they won't use their real name, however Seriously does raise some good points. They are however wrong. First off I have an education, a degree in electronic engineering, and I'm currently studying to get a Masters in Mathematics. You know the science of dealing with numbers. The same numbers that come with budgets and how to get this town back on one where the town starts making money and not just the people in the village hall. I have a job. Actually I've had a job of one kind or another since I was thirteen and working as a farmhand. In fact the only time I haven't worked was the years I was dealing with my shattered arms and all the surgeries that came with that. At which point I lived with my parents because for almost two years they were my arms and hands. Now I still live at home. I have a sick and disabled father and a mother that is working her fingers to the bone. So yes I have decided to stay with them and help them, because they are my family and without me they would be without a home. So while my name isn't on the paperwork that doesn't mean that I haven't been the one paying the bills and that the taxes for this town aren't getting paid with my checks. As for me doing the right thing. I'm doing it. I'm running for mayor. This town is at a crossroads. We can go back down the washed out roads behind us or travel somewhere new. Personally I'd rather travel a new road then ones that do nothing more then hurt this town. http://www.faceboo k.com/pages/Donald -R-Hunt-for-Mayor/ 295025787280169  (Feb 17, 2013 | post #8)

Donald Hunt for mayor?

Not at all my friend. I am still running, I however an running on a much much smaller budget then my opponents. I'm doing everything myself. I have no committee or backers. My signs will be made by hand and my meet and greet will be made in person when I knock on your door.  (Feb 15, 2013 | post #2)

April Election

Remember my friends I have also filed to run for Mayor. I may not have the experience of the other candidates, but that doesn't mean I won't try to do my best for this town if I'm elected.  (Jan 5, 2013 | post #15)

Donald R. Hunt For Mayor.

Hello all Thank you for the positive comments. I will answer what I can. Reagan: I would love a town debate before Elections. I also go for walks most nights and am willing to walk and talk to anyone willing to walk with me. I will not be closed off to the people I wish to represent. Tax Payer: That is something that needs to be addressed. I have a hard time believing we can spend thousands on re mulching Smith Road, and all the flower beds in town, but can't salt the roads so people don't wreck their cars. Don For Mayer: thank you for the kind words. TMI: I am a Union Member I wouldn't hide that anymore then I would hide the fact I am also a Fireman. It is who I am, and if I wasn't injured I would still doing both. Thank you all again.  (Oct 29, 2012 | post #17)
