post_it_i_m_backZina Pierre Reverses Withdrawal

Claims she never withdrew from race

In yet another bizarre twist on the saga surrounding the election of Annapolis’ next mayor,  Zina Pierre claims a miscommunication led to the erroneous statement that she had withdrawn.

I am running for Mayor of Annapolis and will continue to fight for all residents, many of whom are calling, texting and e-mailing me with extraordinary support. The same support I am getting from the chair of the Annapolis Democratic Central Committee. I will continue to be accountable, transparent and a strong leader. Misinformation led to the confusion of the last two days. We will hold a news conference on Wednesday to address issues in detail.

Zina Pierre

It has been rumored that Pierre has fired her campaign staff for releasing the withdrawal statement and has hired new staff from outside Anne Arundel County to manage the campaign through the general election in November.

While many prominent local African Americans have encouraged her to withdraw, Pierre appears to be in for the long haul. At this point, it is anyone’s guess how the last 36 hours will affect her campaign or if her voters and supporter have lost some confidence in their candidate. With about 6 weeks to go,  Pierre will need to make up for lost ground.

While the candidate has yet to address her court record, it is assumed that it will be a nagging issue going forward in the campaign which will eventually need to be addressed.

Pierre will address the issues at a press conference on Wednesday.

A copy of her official statement and release is available by clicking here (PDF).

    Bizarre is an understatement. This is vaguely reminiscent of John McCain’s schizophrenic campaign. Luckily, she does not need to choose a running mate…

    So now you have a democratic candidate, who is too incompetent to manage even her own personal affairs, who will will against any republican candidate because most of the republicans in the city are whiny self-righteous a-holes who nobody likes.

    If you think the last administration was bad, just wait until this plays ou-

    Wait a minute, I moved to the COUNTY 3 years ago. Nevermind.

    AAAGGHHHHH! LOL! You can’t make this stuff up! When will Annapolis City learn that the answer to their problems doesn’t always require a Democrat. Vote issues, not party or gender or race! You think Moyer was bad, wait till this little flower get her hands on the office. Sheeeshh.
