Congratulations, New Baltimore! You did good!

Unofficial Election Results
The Margins are Clear; These Results Look Good.

Preliminary Results (P) & Final Results (F): Turnout was LOW!!! Only 1064 Ballots Cast. Shame on you, New Baltimore Voters!

  • Supervisor (unopposed): Jeff Ruso –  510 votes; Final Results as of November 8, 2017: 730 votes out of 1064 ballots cast
  • Town Clerk (unopposed): Barbara Finke – 520 votes; Final Results 731 votes out of 1064 ballots cast
  • Town Council: Shelly A. van Etten – 429 votes; Final Results 608 votes
  • Town Council: Kelly C. Downes – 387 votes; Final Results 568 votes
  • Town Council Losers: S. Jacob Colwell – P 303/F 422 votes; James H. Eckl – P 316/ F 425 votes)
  • Tax Collector (unopposed): Diane A. Jordan – P 531/ F 751 votes out of 1064 ballots cast.

Based on the ballots cast and the votes for Supervisor, Clerk, Tax Collector, it appears more than 30% of voters casting ballots did not vote for the unopposed candidates. We think that’s a very significant figure who abstained in protest to unopposed candidates. One third (Avg. 309) of the 1064 total ballots cast did not vote for the unopposed candidates. Thank you, New Baltimore voters, for making that statement!!!

Thank you! New Baltimore voters.

Welcome to the Town of Coeymans, New York

The Eyesore-on-the-Hudson, the local Black Pit of Calcutta, gives new meaning to Democrat Depraved Degeneracy.

Voters in an Angry Little Backwater Town in New York Decide They Like to Be Angry, Anxious, and Abused. The Democratic Process at Work in New York.

This Sums up the Town of Coeymans, New York: Raw Sewerage. Coeymans voters choose to live in shit again!

The best thing that could happen to the Town of Coeymans is that it would just slide into the Hudson. At least there GE’s chemicals would make a quick end to their disease.

The town is doomed to continue on in a dead-man’s spin to oblivion and no one gives a damn, not even the local Coeymanazis.

Me so happy! We call you now rittle NoKo. You rikey?
Conglaturations Rittle NoKo.
Me rikey you stupid voters!

For the final figures on the Albany County 2017 General Election go to: Albany Co Finals.

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 …

  1. Remember “B” is for Better. Coeymans voters: Keep it real simple. Vote Row “B” all the way across!
  2. Remember “C” is for corruption and for Crandall.
  3. 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.
  4. Keep Cindy Rowzee out of the Clerk’s office; she was never there when needed but now she wants the whole thing!!
  5. Vote: Morgan Fishlock for Coeymans Town Clerk! Row “B”
  6. Vote: Kenneth Mahler for Coeymans Supervisor! Row “B”
  7. Keep Searles as Highway Super in Coeymans. Row “B”
  8. 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).

New Baltimore

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Fill in the oval at Barbara Finke’s name for New Baltimore Town Clerk; Give her the numbers!
  4. Fill in the oval at Shelly van Etton’s name for Town Council.
  5. 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?

The Proposals

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.

Peter DeLuke

A Local Resident Shares some stuff about Peter DeLuke, another Democrat Dumbass

Republished from a post by  Don Merrill on Facebook:

I was approached by a gentleman today and he asked why this upcoming info he had compiled isn’t being told to the voters of Coeymans. These are the qualifications of Pete Deluke.

1, Ripped power lines from private residence on Powell Hill Rd.
2, While driving truck ripped down powerlines snapped 3 power poles a transformer fell into creek at intersection of Whitbeck Rd. And Stanton Rd.
3, driving a town truck ,backed into another town truck in highway dept parking lot and denied doing it.
4, driving a town truck that backed onto a rented bulldozer and denied and lied about incident.
5, Caught sleeping while in town truck behind Ravena firehouse by taxpayer while on town work time.
6, While using town backhoe was told to dig by hand near waterline and instead used backhoe and ripped several feet of village waterline out and jok ed about it to village employees while they fixed the line.
7, While collecting unemployment from state was caught working under the table and was fined and removed from unemployment.

1, Worked at parts store til 2000.
2, Laborer at Millious Construction paving and blacktoping driveways and parking lots.
3, worked at Finke Equipment delivering and picking up equipment from jobsite.
This does not give you 25 years experience in road maintenance or qualify you to be Highway Superintendent but, that is exactly what’s touted on his Facebook page.
6 out of 7 employees at highway dept do not trust support or endorse him in any way. As I personally have seen he claims to be endorsed by CSEA but the local at the highway department has explicitly denounced this unsafe truck driver as unsatisfactory.

These are all proven true facts about the Democratic candidate for Coeymans Highway Superintendent!! They’re scraping the bottom of the barrel for candidates in the Democratic party.

Well, even if only half of Mr Merrill’s report is true, this Peter DeLuke is a real piece of damaged goods. Best keep him out of the Coeymans Highway Department overall, much less elect him to run things right into the river!



Election Day Recommendations. This is the moment of Truth!

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
and feedback from the community, these are

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.

For Ruso and Jordan, find the Write-in space under their positions and
write the words “NO CHOICE” in the space.
Don’t give them the numbers. Make your Protest heard!

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!

Town Board

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.

A Moving Message from Diane Millious, Coeymans Town Clerk

A Tragic Story that Marks the Decline of a Community

Phil Crandall has been out campaigning with his pet confidential secretary Cindy Rowzee and misinforming voters! Crandall and Rowzee have been saying how lovely their relationship has been with veteran Town Clerk Diane Millious. Ms Millious denies that statement and says that Crandall and Rowzee are lying, misinforming potential voters! That certainly doesn’t surprise us!

“C” is also for Crandall

Phil Crandall may be facing charges for forging signatures on his ballot petitions, which were falsely witnessed by his son-in-law! People have come forward saying they never signed the petition. Very serious allegations and we’re waiting to see what Mr David Soares does with the case. And that leaves the question why Phil Crandall used the Town Attorney for a private matter when he didn’t want to show up for the court appearance. A violation by Crandall using the Town Attorney for a private defense AND an ethical violation by Town Attorney Pastore!

Phil Crandall my be up on serious charges of obstruction of justice by leaking a confidential police investigation memo to the perps.

Crandall was forced to resign from his position as Coeymans Town justice because of corruption; Coeymans voted him in along with a couple of other recycled failed politicians in 2015. We have to ask what dishonesty and corruption got them into office after they were either disgraced or lost previous elections.

And Why? was Phil Crandall too busy to show up for the Meet the Candidates event at the school? Coward that he is, he didn’t want to face voters with tough questions.

Although we reported extensively on their corrupt histories, Comanches preferred to make fools of themselves. Here are some of the previous articles we published in 2015, as background:

Diane Millious, Coeymans Town Clerk for more than a quarter of a century, opens up Why? she’s leaving public service. Her statement , original made privately to friends on Facebook, is being reprinted below with permission. We’ve inserted the names, where necessary, so that everyone is clear about whom she is talking.

Ms Millious’ statement should make some important voting decisions for you on November 6, 2017, election day.

Election Day is almost here and this is the first time in 16 years that I won’t be on the ballot. The decision not to run was not an easy one. It was made partly because of a desire to pack up and move south but mostly because of what I have had to endure over the past two years. I have worked with several Supervisors and Town Boards over the years, some easier to work with than others, I stress the words work with.

The current Town Board with the exception of two members has been impossible to work with. This Town, your Town is currently being run by three people [Phil Crandall, Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan], three people are making all the decisions, don’t be fooled by it being a five member board. Many of the decisions have been made behind closed doors without discussion with the whole Board, the remaining two have been blindsided several times.

There were many occasions when I asked to be placed on the agenda only to find out on the night of a meeting that I was not on the agenda. After this happening several times I found that in order to be heard I had to speak during Public Comment. I have been met with resistance and denial for my needs in staffing my office. The workload requires myself, my Deputy and two part-time clerks alternating days. That has been my staff for 16 years, this Board decided that my office was overstaffed, mind you the Supervisor [Phil Crandall] and one on the Board members [Jim Youmans] are hardly ever in Town Hall to see what my office or any other office does. However the Supervisor’s Office [under Phil Crandall]  is currently staffed by the Supervisor [Phil Crandall], his full-time secretary [Cindy Rowzee, now running for Town Clerk], his full time clerk [Nita Chmielewski, former disgraced Town Supervisor], a part-time human resource/payroll clerk [Linda Ziegler], and an Internal Control Officer & accountant [Sarah Morrison, Darryl Puritan at about $100/hour] who frequently work on weekends. I might add that most of these positions are paid twenty plus dollars an hour with increased hours and pay rate in next year’s budget.

I have been disrespected, scolded and downright bullied by the current Town Board [Phil Crandall, Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan]. Up until the last two years I have run my office as I saw fit to suit the needs of the public, these past two years have been difficult on me and my staff.

My former Deputy was going to finish out my term with me, she chose to retire at the end of May because of the turmoil.

Having said all this, it has been a privilege and an honor serving the Town of Coeymans. I took great pride in helping to meet your needs. Make sure you vote on Election Day and make informed decisions.

Since Phil Crandall and his Democrap croneys Jim Youmans and Tom Dolan were elected in 2015, Coeymans Town Hall has become a cesspool of disrespect, lies, corruption, and incompetence. Coeymans doesn’t need this sort of garbage running things, going on spending sprees to pad the pockets of Mr Crandall’s little harem in his office, while cutting staff and salaries in other departments to the point of abuse!

On November 7, 2017, election day:

Vote Row “B” all the way! “B” is for Better.

Coeymans deserves better than Crandall, Rowzee and DeLuke!

New Baltimore Elections: No Choice. The Sequel. (And Coeymans, too!)

Election Day is just a few days away and you need to start thinking.

There are a number of candidates in New Baltimore asking for your vote but are running unopposed.

Please see our article
No Choice! Unopposed Candidates? Here’s the Plan…
If you haven’t already

It’s not so simple as an “easy decision” as reported by Columbia-Greene County Media; it’s a question of democratic process and having a choice, not being handed a no-choice candidate; that’s called tyranny, not democracy. That’s how dictators work, no competition!

On Thursday, November 2, 2017, one of our contributors contacted the Town Clerks of Coeymans and New Baltimore with the question: “Can you please tell me which candidates in your town are running for election unopposed and for which office(s)?” Both Clerks Diane Millious and Bonnie Keyer (Coeymans) and Barbara Finke (New Baltimore) responded almost immediately.

The Town of New Baltimore has three candidates running unopposed:

Jeff Ruso (R) for Town Supervisor. Ruso is running unopposed; the New Baltimore Democraps couldn’t come up with a candidate to run against him. Ruso ran once before with competition for Town Supervisor and lost. He later ran for New Baltimore Town Board and was elected to the board. He has since been Deputy Supervisor alongside Supervisor Nick Dellisanti. Our experience with the Dellisanti-Ruso team has been less than satisfactory, and we must admit that they have fallen flat on their faces in terms of dealing with the New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways, Denis Jordan (D), who, we understand is allegedly under investigation for abuse of office, maladministration, malfeasance, and misfeasance. Jordan’s deputy, Scott van Wormer, may also be implicated in some of the activities under investigation. We mention this Highway Department issue and Denis Jordan because it’s a very serious matter and the current Town Board (Dellisanti, Ruso, van Etten, Irving, Brody) have had opportunities to shine but ended up with egg on their faces and may be held liable, along with corrupt Denis Jordan. Please do not cast a vote for Ruso so that he doesn’t get the numbers; he’s running unopposed so if he votes for himself he’ll have one vote and that will elect him.

Barb Finke (R)  for Town Clerk. Barbara Finke is the current incumbent New Baltimore Town Clerk. We want her to get all the numbers she can, because she’s been doing a stellar job as Town Clerk. She’s competent and efficient. She’s also knowledgeable and very helpful. In general, our local town clerks are very hard working and don’t get the credit they deserve. Although Ms Finke is running unopposed, we’d like you to show your support by giving her the numbers. Your vote is your voice!

Diane Jordan (R) for Tax Collector.Diane Jordan is running unopposed and we have no problem with that. The problem we do have is that Ms Jordan is married to the incompetent New Baltimore Superintendent of Highways, Denis Jordan (D). We also have a problem of possible conflicts of interest in that Ms Jordan is also a deputy town clerk; we are uneasy with that situation given the problems with her husband, Highway Superintendent Denis Jordan. Tax collector is not the most glamorous job in the world and Ms Jordan appears to be good a licking stamps and sealing tax bill envelopes. We have no objection to her continuing in office but we do ask voters not to cast a vote in her case; not casting your vote will send a protest message regarding her husband but will not affect whether she is re-elected. The same applies to her as to Jeff Ruso, above: even if the only vote the get is their own, they’ll still be elected. Don’t give her the numbers.

We’d like to mention the candidates for town board.
Shelly van Etten (R, C, I), incumbent town board member. Ms van Etten is up for re-election. We support her re-election if only to keep her where she is in order to see what happens in the Denis Jordan case. Nick Dellisanti has backed out of New Baltimore politics but Jeff Ruso will still be around; we’d like to keep as many current people in place for accountability purposes. Ms van Etten has a firm foothold in New Baltimore both as a resident and business owner (van Etten Excavating).
Three newcomers are seeking election to the New Baltimore Town Board, two of them are Democraps: Jacob Colwell and James Eckl. Kelly Downes (R, C, I)  is the other newcomer.
We would argue in favor of a mixed party board but in our experience in New Baltimore and Coeymans, the minority party’s only interest is to mess with the majority party and stymie any progress. It’s the same sour grapes attitude we find at the state and national level politics. The little fish like to think they have power to stop the big fish but the only ones they hurt and punish are us residents.
Jacob Colwell is youngish and has a family. We say he should stay home and be with his family, raise his children, and stop playing the stupid egomaniac game. We do not support Colwell for those reasons. A further reason is that he’s a school phys ed instructor and coach. Those are time-consuming activities — or they should be — and we don’t think that would work out very well. Finally, his main interest seems to be a bit childish: the town newsletter. The newsletter is a nice but not a necessary; besides, that’s what we have local newspapers for, isn’t it? Maybe Mr Vinciguerra and Ms Dempsy of Columbia Greene Media (Johnson Newspaper Group) could invest a bit more time in New Baltimore, so that we don’t have to waste time and resources on Mr Colwell’s pet project. Mr Colwell also wants to bring “transparency and diversity” to the board. The current board is already quite transparent and open; usually very forthcoming and no big secrets. That’s fine with us. So Colwell wants to bring something we already have, transparency. Now this “diversity” thing is a bit scary, since Colwell hasn’t mentioned what he means by diversity. Bottom line: Nix to Colwell.
James Eckl is 71 years old and running as a newcomer. Eckl is retired from that incompetent and corrupt state entity, the Department of Environmental Conservation. Right there we have a negative because most of those people at the DEC are a bit weird, and we don’t need any more weird in New Baltimore town government than we already have. At present, we’re O-D’ing on weird. Eckl serves on the New Baltimore Zoning Board of Appeals but he says that if elected to the Town Board, he’ll bring some different views into the town. You’d think he’d already have done that being on the Zoning Board. We covered some issues concerning the New Baltimore Zoning Board of Appeals several months ago and we were not impressed with how they were operating. We don’t need to infect the Town Board with that virus by electing Eckl to the Town Board; we don’t need undefined “new views”, whatever that means.
The final face we’d like to discuss is Ms Kelly Downes (R, C, I), who is also a newcomer running for election for Town Board. Ms Downes claim to fame is — NONE. We met Ms Downes a couple months ago at a Town Board meeting and we were not impressed; in fact, she came across as defensive and not very friendly. She is employed by the state as an “internal auditor” and has been a NB resident for 30 of her 52 years. That in itself is not a qualifier but at least she’s been living in New Baltimore for as long as Jacob Colwell has been potty trained (Colwell is 34). One major issue we have with Downes is the fact that in a recent piece published in Hudson Valley 360, a publication of the Register Star and Daily News, the paper reports that when they tried to get in touch with her for their candidate’s intro piece, “Downes did not return multiple phone calls for comment.” If that’s the way she’s going to conduct her campaign by not returning the media’s calls, we don’t have much confidence in her performance as a future board member.
That’s our take on the three newcomers asking for your vote to put them on the New Baltimore town board. We have no real preference because the choices are so bad. We have serious doubts about Jacob Colwell and we are strongly suspicious of James Eckl. Kelly Downes may work well with the members on the current board, and she’ll balance out the board by adding a woman’s voice. While her plumbing is not a serious criterion for election, it’s worth thinking about, given the overall poor choices.

Town of Coeymans

Diane Millious

First of all, we are really very, very sorry to see Diane Millious leaving town service as Town Clerk. Diane has been a model of integrity and professionalism in Coeymans Town Hall for more than a quarter century. She’s seen the best and she’s seen the worst, but she’s always kept her eye on the ball; she’s always been there to serve the residents and visitors of the Town of Coeymans. How do you thank someone like Diane Millious enough for her exemplary service and devotion to Coeymans. Here’s an idea: Make the numbers count. Write her name in as a write-in for Town Clerk. If she wins as a write-in it’ll show how much Coeymans loves her and is grateful to her. She can then refuse to accept the vote, and then the runner-up will take the election. You’re not wasting a vote and you’re sending a very special message!

 The Coeymans Candidates and Our Recommendations

Last election voters in the Town of Coeymans sent raw sewerage into Coeymans Town Hall by electing disgraced town justice Phillip Crandall to be Supervisor and recycled losers like Jim Youmans, Tom Dolan, etc. to be Town Board members. Big mistakes. The ballots for this Tuesday, November 6, aren’t much prettier.

Town Supervisor

  • Philip A. Crandall: ABSOLUTELY NOT!!! When asked to tell us what his accomplishments were as Town Supervisor, Crandall refused to respond; he had no accomplishments. Apart from being forced to resign as town justice for corruption, Crandall was rebuked by the board of elections for having misused signatures on his ballot petitions. Crandall’s response: “I didn’t know.” Bullshit! Crandall has been in politics long enough to know the rules, he just doesn’t like rules. On a more serious note, Crandall recently allegedly misused some confidential police information by turning over to the individual being investigated. It’s not yet known whether he’ll face charges on that account. Bottom line: Get the garbage out of Coeymans Town Hall. Give Phil Crandall the boot!
  • Keith E. Mahler, Jr.: Not much to say about this dud but anything’s better than Crandall!

Town Councilman

  • Michael J. McGuire: Newcomer. Very little information on him. If they’re not open on the campaign trail, we don’t need them in Town Hall. If you know anything about him, please share with us so we can let voters know.
  • Neil E. Porlier: Newcomer. Very little information on him. If they’re not open on the campaign trail, we don’t need them in Town Hall. If you know anything about him, please share with us so we can let voters know.
  • Daniel D. Baker: Newcomer. Very little information on him. If they’re not open on the campaign trail, we don’t need them in Town Hall.  If you know anything about him, please share with us so we can let voters know.
  • Kenneth A. Burns: Burns is running for a second term. Question is, does he have any balls. one thing’s certain: Better to keep the devil you know than to get a devil you don’t know.Town Clerk

One thing’s certain, we’ll never get another Diane Millious; she’s one of a kind. All the rest will be second rate.

Coeymans Town Clerk

  • Cindy L. Rowzee: Ms Rowzee has a history that goes back to her stint in Ravena village hall. Worse still, Rowzee has been Phil Crandall’s “confidential secretary.” That alone should raise red flags as to her fitness to be Coeymans Town Clerk. Several months ago, we asked Ms Rowzee if she’d like to talk to us about why she would be a good Town Clerk. She refused to talk to us. If that’s any indication of what kind of clerk she’ll make, forget about her!
  • Morgan B. Fishlock: Yes. Although a newcomer, she comes highly recommended. In fact, the best recommendation possible from our own Diane Milious. That’s enough for us to caller Madam Clerk!

Town Justice

  • Thomas M. Frese: Former corrections officer, local business owner. His background is too much like Crandall’s. Won’t know how to deal respectfully with people because of his career controlling criminals.
  • Charles W. Brooks: Brooks has court experience and comes on good recommendations. We would call him your honor from this point on.

Superintendent of Highways

  • Peter J. DeLuke: Newcomer. Very little information on him. If you know anything about him, please share with us so we can let voters know.
  • Scott D. Searles: Searles has been on the job for a while and appears to be doing a mediocre but passable job. Problem is that the elected Superintendent of Highways is a relatively autonomous public office and can do what he likes in general, including some really dumbass stuff. Keep an eye on him and let him know who pays the bills.

Here’s the plan.

  1. Please get your sorry asses out to vote!
  2. Check the list below of candidates running unopposed in your district.
  4. If you have a choice of candidates for a particular office, please carefully consider your choice and vote for the one BEST QUALIFIED, not your friend, your brother-in-law, or your next door neighbor. If you feel you must vote out of so-called “friendship” or family loyalties, that’s not a criterion for selecting an elected official for the rest of us. Be fair.

The reason that we are asking you not to cast a vote for an unopposed candidate is because we want you to protest not having a choice by not casting a vote for the unopposed candidate(s).

If you don’t cast a vote for an unopposed candidate, you are sending a message. Here’s how:

When you go in to vote, you sign in. That gives us a total number of registered voters who got out and voted. We can compare that number to the total number of registered voters in your district overall to see how many actually got out to vote.

Now, we can take those two numbers and look at the totals for the unopposed candidates and see just how many, what percentage, of active voters protested the no-choice situation.

We’ll report that number so you can see where the community stands on no-choice elections.

We need to make our voices heard in whatever way possible to avoid becoming a second North Korea.

Me so happy! You mellicans got no choice! You get me! You velly happy now…YES!


(This doesn’t mean that the unopposed candidate won’t get into office, all it takes is ONE VOTE, most likely their own, to “win” the election.)
