Realistic Balance Mayoral Candidate Kilian to Donate Campaign War chest

Below is a letter received from Realistic Balance mayoral candidate John Kilian. Kilian lost to incumbent Mayor Dan Drew (D), but received 16% of the total votes cast for mayor; a precedent for a third party challenger in Middletown. Mayor Drew raised $93,000 in contributions for re-election campaign. Kilian says he  will be donating 100% of his raised funds as he spent no money for his bid for mayor.
-------------------------------------------------

Since the campaign ended, people have been lining up to solicit me for my candidate committee surplus. After due diligence  I am going to direct my treasurer to disburse the entire kit and caboodle left in the Citizens for Kilian account to The Buttonwood Tree Performing Arts and Cultural Center.  They are a local institution that plays an important role in our community, and they are in need of financial support from the community.

As far as what will become of the bond I posted when I sued the City, that will become available before Thanksgiving, and has been reserved for what will likely be a very large bar bill in Newtown the day after.


Sincerely,

John Kilian
