Kokomo Republican mayoral candidate Rick Hamilton says he’s stepping down from his position on the Chamber of Commerce to focus on his family and his campaign. He says he wants to give himself the best chance he can to win in November.
Hamilton says he was relieved to win the primary race on May 8th and says he’s looking toward the general election later this year. He says while most of the main campaigning doesn’t start until after Labor Day, he still has plans for the summer.
Hamilton defeated incumbent Mayor Matt McKillip in the recent primary election. He’ll go on to face Greg Goodnight in the general election.
