Jamison Moore ’04 has been selected as the Democratic candidate for the Common Council, Ithaca’s governing body, by the 4th Ward Democratic committee.
Moore will be running for the position of Alderman in the November elections.
If he is elected he will serve the remaining two years of a four year term, a position vacated by the recent resignation of Alderman Josh Glasstetter ’01(D-4th Ward).
Glasstetter resigned from the Common Council on Sept. 12 because of personal reasons and to set the precedent of having two-year terms for students.
“I am very excited to have been afforded the chance to run for the opportunity to represent the 4th Ward,” Moore said.
Despite the curtailed amount of time during which the Democratic Committee was able to search for a candidate, the party seems to be united in their decision.
“I am very proud to have been unanimously selected for this candidacy,” Moore said.
He plans on representing all of his constituency, both Cornell students and Ithaca residents who make up the 4th Ward. Moore believes representing only students is “short sited” and says that a “key tenet” of his campaign will
be being available to all constituents of the 4th Ward.
His campaign will begin with today’s press conference that will be held at 11:15 a.m. at the front entrance to Cascadilla Hall.
