An online magazine and opinion leader. No hype, just the reality behind the appearances in and around Albany, New York by a native of the place. Some of it pure opinion but all of it written in the spirit of Truth, good facts-based journalism and freedom of expression!
Today, Tuesday, November 7, 2017: Your To-Do List…
Once we get past these elections, we’ll publish some new information on the
New Baltimore Highway Department and the
New Baltimore Town Board’s failure
to govern responsibly. But right now …
Remember “B” is for Better. Coeymans voters: Keep it real simple. Vote Row “B” all the way across!
Remember “C” is for corruption and for Crandall.
Get rid of the Coeymans scandal Phil Crandall, and bring a fresch scent and clean air back into the Supervisor’s office. The stench of raw sewerage is choking local government in Coeymans! And once “Crandall the Scandal” is out, the new Supervisor can give Crandall’s little office harem the boot, starting with his so-called “confidential secretary,” Cindy Rowzee.
Keep Cindy Rowzee out of the Clerk’s office; she was never there when needed but now she wants the whole thing!!
Vote: Morgan Fishlock for Coeymans Town Clerk! Row “B”
Vote: Kenneth Mahler for Coeymans Supervisor! Row “B”
Keep Searles as Highway Super in Coeymans. Row “B”
Get rid of conflicts of interest in the Albany County Coroners Office: Vote Paul Marra out as Albany County Coroner. Vote the funeral directors out of political office (Paul Marra and the others, Charles Smoot, Timothy Cavanaugh and John Keegan).
Don’t fill in the oval at Jeff Ruso’s name for Supervisor; Instead, go to the write-in area and write the words “NO CHOICE” in.
Don’t fill in the oval at Diane Jordan’s name for Tax Collector; Instead, go to the write-in area and write the words “NO CHOICE” in.
Fill in the oval at Barbara Finke’s name for New Baltimore Town Clerk; Give her the numbers!
Fill in the oval at Shelly van Etton’s name for Town Council.
Coin toss when it comes to Downes or Collwell. We’d like to see another woman (Downes) on the New Baltimore Town board to balance the plumbing problem. But Collwell might be a stimulus to the other board members to move on important issues. He may have half a brain to add to the board’s current half-a-brain. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a whole brain on the New Baltimore Town Board?
Remember: We don’t owe our elected officials or our public servants a damned thing! They owe us; we pay the bills. We demand respect, performance, accountability and transparency. If our elected officials and public servants don’t know what those words mean, we’re here to give them a couple of lessons. And if they can’t or won’t deliver the goods, they get their walking papers. Simple.
