Tammy Murray-Cousins pulls papers for 1-year BOS seat, will challenge Dennis Randall
TOWN HOUSE- Tammy Murray Cousins (pictured) has become the latest candidate to pull nomination papers for selectmen this week and will challenge former-Selectman Dennis Randall for the opportunity to serve out the year remaining on Ron Gleason’s expiring term.
Murray-Cousins, a relative newcomer to Kingston politics with no history of holding elected office, lists her professions as “Angel Communication Specialist” and “Energy Life Coach” on her Web site.
In a statement released to KingstonJournal.com yesterday, Murray-Cousins said she pulled papers because she believes in Kingston residents. “We all need to heal and move forward together,” Murray-Cousins’ statement said.
“I am tired of the incivility and animosity,”Murray- Cousins writes. “I want to bring peace to the board. I believe this is possible through the use of constructive dialogue so that things brought before the board can be accomplished in a timely manner.”
Murray-Cousins says that she will bring a “fresh prospective” to the Kingston Selectmen, along with “an unbiased and open mind.”
Murray-Cousins, a hospice volunteer, currently serves as the Kingston Housing Authority’s Executive Director.
“I will vote without emotion or personal attachment,” Murray-Cousins’ statement reads. “The only plan I have is to do what’s best for the town as a whole.”
Murrary-Cousins has until March 10th to return nomination papers with the town clerk’s office in the Kingston Town House.
Randall, who once held the seat that Gleason gave up, has already submitted completed nomination papers with Town Clerk Mary Lou Murzyn.
