Nov. 13 – Former Congressman Jack Kingston announces endorsement of Eddie DeLoach for Mayor

By Lou Phelps, Savannah Business Journal

November 13, 2015 – Former Congressman Jack Kingston has announced that he is endorsing Eddie DeLoach in the upcoming Dec. 1 Mayoral election runoff.

“Savannah has an important election coming up on December 1st. I'm supporting my friend Eddie DeLoach in this runoff election for Mayor.

“I've worked with Eddie when he was a County Commissioner and as a businessman. He is a dedicated, thoughtful leader who is not afraid to make tough decisions. If Eddie disagrees with you, he'll tell you upfront; and if he tells you he's going to do something, take it to the bank that it's going to get done.

“Savannah has had over 11,000 "shots fired" incidents this year, with an average of 16 shots per incident. We've had 39 murders. That's why addressing crime is Eddie's number one issue. But he can't do it without your vote.

“Elections during the holidays are always difficult, but you can vote early before Thanksgiving from Nov 23 - 25. A runoff election during the holiday season means we'll probably see low turnout, making every vote that much more important. Eddie needs you. Please vote early Nov 23-25, or on Election Day Dec 1,” said Kingston.

Congressman Kingston represented Georgia’ 1st Congressional District for 22 years before giving up his seat to run for the U. S. Senate.
