Daggett to start walking the beaches on Memorial Day weekend

Independent gubernatorial candidate Chris Daggett intends to launch a beach-walking campaign tour in Cape May this coming Saturday.

“I grew up in Linwood, and I’ve been on the Ocean City beaches every summer of my life,” said the former regional administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). “It’s a good opportunity to talk to voters.”

Gearing up for the general election season and hoping to qualify for government matching funds, Daggett said, “Between cash and pledges we’ve raised over $200,000 (toward the $340,000 to qualify for state funds). We’re a little over half way there. Right now, we’re raising money and getting the organization together.”

"Sit down and shut up!"
