3 delegate candidates join forces, form committee CAMPAIGN 1994

CAMPAIGN NOTEBOOK

October 09, 1994|By Campaign Notebook was compiled by Sun staff writer John Rivera.

The three Democratic nominees for the House of Delegates in District 33 -- David G. Boschert, Mike Canning and Del. Marsha Perry -- have formed The Friends of Marsha, Dave and Mike, a committee that allows them to pool their resources.

They will be able to hold joint fund-raisers, buy advertising and send out literature as a team.

The candidates have enlisted the help of three who lost in the district Democratic primary. Sylvia Jennings will chair the committee. Hal Counihan will serve as the committee treasurer and Dan Nataf will be the political director.

This is not the first joint effort by the three candidates. Ms. Perry, Mr. Boschert and Mr. Canning banded together two weeks ago to publicly endorse Ralph Gies, a conservative Democrat running against Republican incumbent Wayne Gilchrest for the 1st District congressional seat. Mr. Gies had been repudiated by the state Democratic Party for his views on issues such as school prayer and abortion, which reportedly strayed too far from party positions.
