Sometimes it’s the little things that matter. Like when you hear a politician say something really stupid but that ‘something’ tells you a lot about that politician. Like how much does he really know or care about you, the voter, and us the community. Are we too small for Mr VanSlyke to give a damn about? Maybe. But our votes do count!
Linger for Greene County Legislature:
Linger is a Republican who has been endorsed by the Republican, Conservative and Reform parties. His three top issues are property taxes, intermunicipal agreements and shared services, and sales tax.
Mr Jim VanSlyke is running for re-election to the Greene county legislature. Mr Pat Linger is opposing him. We think a statement made by Mr vanSlyke at a recent New Baltimore town board meeting sums up Mr vanSlyke: “As a county legislator we get some money that we can give away. I have to give mine to Catskill, Cairo and Windham, because there aren’t enough organizations in New Baltimore who ask for it.” (paraphrased by informant). We expect Mr vanSlyke to have his finger on the pulses of the communities in his territory and that he should know who they are and if they need support; vanSlyke should announce the availability of the funds and organizations could then apply for them. What’s wrong with you, Mr vanSlyke? What in hell are you doing, anyway?
