We were right! Jenna Kate is Crandall’s daughter! No wonder she is so pissed with this blog. See “Comments” for Crandall Jr’s nasty Facebook post and our reader’s response. Seems like Crandall’s daughter is about as oblivious to reality and truth as here disgraced ole daddy is
This is it! Based on our investigations, the facts

Our Recommendations for the Elections
In the Town of Coeymans
This one is really simple. “B” is for BETTER. Vote Row “B” straight on through.
It’s that simple to bring vast improvements to Coeymans Town Hall.
- Get rid of Phil Crandall once and for all. Bring dignity back to the Supervisor’s office!
- Ensure support for Coeymans Police Chief P.J. McKenna and his public safety efforts.
- Keep Cindy Rowzee out of Town hall!!! She’s a Crandall lackey and lied to voters when campaigning.
- Make certain the Clerk’s office has the staff and resources needed to serve us.
- Clean out the Supervisor’s office!!! Get rid of the parasites devouring tax dollars
- Take a first step to clean up the Coeymans Town Board; Get rid of Jim Youmans and Tom Dolan next time around!
- Keep the crook and liar, incompetent DeLuke out of the Highway Department (He’s Coeymans’ version of New Baltimore’s corrupt Denis Jordan!!!)
This just in on Peter DeLuke, candidate for Coeymans Superintendent of Highways: DeLuke is Damaged Goods!
The Town of New Baltimore
As usual, nothing’s easy in the Town of New Baltimore. While Coeymans Town Hall is filled with raw political sewerage and corruption starting with the Supervisor’s office and the Town Board, New Baltimore is a mixed bag of tricks and treats. This is how we recommend New Baltimore voters make their voices heard:
There are three unopposed candidates in New Baltimore. THREE! That means the political parties in New Baltimore have left New Baltimore voters with no choice in three important positions:
Supervisor: Jeff Ruso (R, C, I) is running unopposed. Don’t fill in the oval next to his name. Find the “Write-In” for the Supervisor position and write in the words “NO CHOICE.” That way you send the message that you protest not having a choice.
Tax Collector: Diane Jordan (R, C, I) is running unopposed. Don’t fill in the oval next to her name. Find the “Write-In” for the Supervisor position and write in the words “NO CHOICE.” That way you send the message that you protest not having a choice.
Town Clerk: Barbara Finke (R, C, I) is running unopposed but we think she’s doing a great job. Send a Thank you! vote to her by filling in the oval next to her name. Give her the numbers as a sign of your approval!
Shelly van Etten (R, C, I). Incumbent New Baltimore Town Board member. We would opt to keep her on the board.
As for Kelly Downes (R, C, I), Jacob Colwell (D), and James Eckl, (D), all we can say is that New Baltimore didn’t have good experiences in the past with Dems on the board, and there’s no reason to think anything’s changed with local Dems. They’re still nasty, liberal to the point of being destructive, and are too interested in downstaters to take over our town. Kelly Downs (R, C, I), is about as exciting as a wet dish rag but she’s got the right plumbing and will balance the gender gap on the board. So it’s a toss up between Colwell and Downs, with Downes syndrome taking a modest lead over Colwell. Voters’ cjpoce. voter’s risk. Can’t help you much on these newbies.
The so-called Proposals
Proposal One: NO!!! Vote NO on the Constitutional Convention!!! We need to preserve the rights we have, not surrender them to a perverse political agenda that is trying to turn us all into lab rats.
Proposal Two: YES. We think the other two proposals make good sense. Any public official who is convicted of a felony should lose his or her pension, especially if the felony is committed in the context of their official duties. There’s no reason why a public official should commit a crime against taxpayers and still get to collect. That’s simply wrong!
Proposal Three: YES. The wording as we read it supports public health and safety. It also promotes recreational facilities without violating our precious forest resources. That’s what the proposal says. But, as usual, we need to keep an eye on those sneaks in the New York State legislature to ensure that they don’t double-deal us. As the proposal is written on the ballot, though, it seems safe enough.
