BW Publisher Challenges Mayor Thomas To Charity Boxing Match

Proceeds to go to The Soup Kitchen and the Mount Vernon Police Benevolent Association

Black Westchester Publisher Damon K. Jones challenged Mount Vernon Mayor Richard W. Thomas to a charity boxing match to settle their difference, Sunday night of the four-year anniversary episode of the People Before Politics Radio Show.

“There is something on your heart toward me that you can’t get off, that you have to attack my family,” Jones a strong critic of the Mayor Thomas said on the PBP Radio Show. “I already know that you are trying to find some way to suspend my wife tomorrow… right now, today, I’m officially challenging you to a charity boxing match, so you can leave my family alone. If you have a problem with me, be a man and stop attacking women and children.”

For the past two and the half years the Thomas Administration has attempted to retaliate and discredit Black Westchester for being a critic and shedding lights to several questionable actions, appointments and alleged corruption of Mayor Thomas and his administration. The straw that broke the camel’s back was when Mayor Thomas attempted to illegally shut down Jones’ daughter business, Cupcake Cutie Boutique (8 South 6th Avenue), Friday night. When that was unsuccessful Jones was informed of the mayor’s plans to attempt to suspend Jones’ wife, a detective with the Mount Vernon Police Department on Monday.

So when Jones caught win to the mayor’s plans, tired of the attacks on his family, challenged the mayor to a charity boxing match, with proceeds going to the Soup Kitchen which operates out of the Armory and the other half going to the Mount Vernon Police Benevolent Association.
