If You Just Take A Short Minute To Actually Look Around Your Town, Take A Close Look At Some Of the Real Clowns You Have Running Things, You Really Have to Ask Yourself: “Where’d We Get These Scary Clowns?”–They’re Absolutely Delusional!
And Tom DUH-lon is no exception, that’s for certain! We have raised some questions, Tom, and we’d love to hear from you with your responses.
First of all, we’re assuming that you’re running on a platform that addresses issues of importance to the newly created District 46. But we also note that your focus is on…FRACKING?!? We know you’re a leftover from the Woodstock era but are you still toking on whacky weed or something? You are aware that you are running in New York state, aren’t you? Not in Pennsylvania or somewhere like that? So, can you tell us where in the newly created senate district 46 there is any likelihood of fracking? But you’ve made it your central issue, Tommy-boy DUH-lan, as if that’s the most pressing issue on the residents of district 46. Is that what you really think, Tommy? Is that how really close you are to the hearts, minds, concerns of the locals? Take another toke, Tommy, you’ll probably see space cadets riding asteroids next!
So, let’s look at a local record we can all be proud of, Thomas E. DUH-lan. NOT! Are you ready? Here goes…
David Soares. Word is, Tom, that you’ve announced your support for the incumbent derelict Albany county district attorney, P. David Soares. Isn’t that the same David Soares who has been censured by the New York state disciplinary commissions for his loose lips and stupid remarks on pending cases? Isn’t that the same David Soares whose office was found to be in serious violation of accounting practices in a recent audit? Is it the same loose-morals David Soares who dips his pen in company ink and was recently lambasted for dating one of his secretaries, who later goes on leave, and ends up with a cushy county job elsewhere? And is that the same David Soares who is soon to go on trial in federal court for libel? Now, Tommy DUH-lan, is that an example of your people knowledge that you’ve gained over the years? Is that the people skills that you’ll be using in the best interests of your community. If it is, Tommy, don’t bother. No thanks! Soares is a sore spot loser and so are you!
Sewerage in Storm Drains. Coeymans. Back in 1998-1999 the so-called Sewer-Water Joint Committee was formed with 2 members from the Village of Ravena and 2 members from the Town of Coeymans, you, Tommy, were the 5th member. People complained about their sewer/water bills were too high. By the time you were done, sewer/water bills for the Town of Coeymans had TRIPLED. Despite hundreds of signatures , 40-50 homes were still tied into the storm drains, emptying raw sewerage into the river. Even today that problem has not been resolved. Now, Tom Dolan, your campaign slogan is “No Fracking.” But right here at home, ours is “No Raw Sewerage.” Now, Tom, very honestly (Am I using a word that’s foreign to you, Tom. If I am, just tell me.): If that’s how you handled a local problem over the past 14 years, what exactly do you think we can expect from you when you’re working your magic from the state capital? Quite frankly, Coeymans still has raw sewerage on its lawns, and raw sewerage is all we can expect from you, Tom DUL-lan!
Much Closer to Home. Quite in joking, we mentioned Woodstock and toking on whacky weed above. But getting very serious now. Word is your son Neil has had quite a bit of contact with law enforcement because of some, let’s just say some “inhalation” problems. Problem is, you’re Town of Coeymans police liaison and you’ve been doing an awful lot of favors for the Coeymans police and, as liaison, have learned to cover not only sonny-boy’s but your boys’ rear ends in the department, too. How is it that these problems just sort of vaporize for Neil? Your wife works for the Albany County Child Protection Service, right? How is it that she can tell people how to raise their kids but your own son is a wild thing? And you, Tom, run Choices in Ravena. Right? You are supposed to be helping low-income families with their problems, including parenting. Well, we’re sure you can see where we’re having some problems with this picture, right? What we see here is a problem of double standards, favoritism, conflicts of interest. Do you get that, Tom? If you do that here in Coeymans, what will you manage from Albany? I’m not willing to take the chance and I don’t think my fellow residents should be, either.
Choices. Choices is a program of the Cornell Cooperative Extension programs. The information is on the Internet but we’re kind of unclear what exactly you do. For example, how many local families do you actually help? Any figures? (Yeah! I know figure happen to be a really sensitive subject in the RCS community but I really had to ask.). We understand that Choices administers a HEAP program, and we also understand that the number of successful applications is really dismally, embarrassingly low. Is that an indicator of your effectiveness? What about the other programs, like the parenting skills programs? Are they dismal, embarassing, too, Tom? If you can’t perform in a minor league, how can you expect to perform on a major league team?
As regards, Choices, you’re the director, right? But we have received reports that you have numerous meetings in your Choices office with the local Democrat party deputy chairperson, Ralph B. Using Choices premises to further your political career? Furthering your political activities on Choices time? We also have information that you take care of other political business from that office. Is that also on the Cooperative Extension, Choices’ dime? Isn’t that, well, dishonest, Tom? Is that an example of how you might be prone to misuse your senate office, too, if by some incredible stroke of bad judgment by voters you’re actually lawfully elected?
A couple of years back, your were caught with your hands in the cookie jar, so-to-speak, when you were filling in absentee ballots for the local poor. That was an embarassing moment for you, wan’t it? Should have been. Because we’re pretty sure that there was, and still is a very serious conflict of interest between the Choices programs and your political ambitions. Was filling out absentee ballots part of your job description back then…we mean your Choices job description, Tom? Will you be filling out any ballots for local residents if you have the chance to run for state senate? Just how much political influence are you exerting on Choices participants, Tom? Do the Choices benefits (if any) get you Democrat cronies votes and you influence and brownie points with the party?
You can understand our concern that we don’t need another crooked politician in the state legislature. And we don’t need another one who’s going to abuse the poor and marginalized…especially in the one privilege they might still have left, their vote.
Back to the Cornell Cooperative Extension. Gee! With all your political connections in the Town of Coeymans. You’re also buddy-buddy with the Breslins, too, aren’t you? And being on the Coeymans town board you can certainly make your voice heard, right? We also understand that the Cooperative Exension supports the development of local historical sites. Right? Well, here’s where we get just a little confused. In Coeymans recently, wasn’t there a controversy about saving a local historical building from demolition. Wasn’t the building something of an historical heritage that went back quite a way in local history, and had some importance as an heritage site? And you as a Coeymans councilman, with all of your “connections,” didn’t bother to save it? Word is, it’s been torn down. Right? Well, if that’s the extent of your interest and your influence right in your own back yard, what can the good people of this community expect from you when you’re out of sight? Our guess is probably about next to nothing, the very same we have learned to expect from you right here and now.
And finally, the Coeymans Farmers’ Market. Back to the Cooperative Extension and developing our community’s resources, especially local culture and agriculture. Every week we read in the local press about the New Baltimore Farmers’ Market and the Coxsackie Farmers’ Market. But the Coeymans Farmers’ Market has vanished. Why exactly is that, Tom. Just another failure, Tom. And is that the kind of performance we should expect from someone who claims to have the local community at heart? Is that the best example of what you can do, Tom? Well, it’s pretty miserable, dude.
