HAMILTON — Hamilton Mayor Kelly Yaede promised to build on the “new day” in Hamilton when announcing her run for re-election Thursday night.
Yaede, entering to the call of Survivor’s “Eye of the Tiger” shook hands in the crowd of more than 100 supporters at the Hamilton Hilton event. In her half-hour address, she covered a variety of issues, including her accomplishments as mayor and promises for a stable tax rate, sustained services and economic growth.
“I want to put Hamilton Township back in the headlines for our promises and successes,” she said.
She also touted her hiring of nine police officers to replace retirements, an expanded township audit and a controversial reform of the township’s ethics practices. She also took some time to anticipate her opponents’ attacks on the campaign trail, saying they would promise services without saying how they would pay for them and criticize the record of public officials.
“They will tear Hamilton Township down in order to tear down our record of success,” she said. “This campaign should be about the future of what we can do together for all Hamiltonians, not about negativity or about personal attacks.”
