Town Police Chief Appointment May Be Clouded By Politics

Carson you are rambling a bit. Sorry can't make any sense of anything you said, you are so off base.
BTW you said "with all the crisis around the world, you people are sad. Think about that statement who is sad??

Town Board Opens Up Chief Position To Lieutenants

Neil Tiger you could have just called George aka Turkey Bridge and told him what you stated above.
I hope that ATH, Bridget and Jim Malone take the advise and warnings that you printed above. But if you read the entire article, a letter should not come from the SC Sheriff endorcing anyone, nor should the SC Conservative party have an interest in seeing Chief Wilson appointed as SHT Chief. It also states that ATH might be eyeing the conservative party endorsement.
Politics should have not played a role in this search for a new Chief. Interviews should have been done by all candidates qualified for the job and one selected.
Unfortunately it appears that this is not what happened. I would guess that someone like you who has held patronage jobs would know this and sometimes this is how business gets done in the political arena.
Politics is an ugly business.
" Apr 25, 11 12:40 AM

Aventi
You are missing the point or choosing to do so. Of course the job should be opened to anyone who is qualified, taking the time necessary to select the right person. But it should not be handed to someone because of political pressure.
Are you saying that the PBA never send a letter to endorse Wilson for chief? Are you saying that the SC Conservative Sheriff did not send a letter endorsing Chief Wilson? That is the point Aventi, did you not read the article’s in this paper? Are they spinning the story into political drama too? Do you know the answers to these questions? But facts are the facts according to what the articles state and what some of our elected official say. A chief was to be appointed and then something changed. A special town board meeting was cancelled the last minute, why?
Seeing that you spend almost every day in town hall do you want to shed some light as to why the PBA and the S.C. Conservative leader & Sheriff are so interested in who gets appointed chief? Why is ATH, Bridget and J. Malone so interested in appointing Wilson.
I doubt you know all the answers, so try to keep your own spin in check.

" Apr 25, 11 1:54 PM

At noon today April 26 and executive session will be held to resume the interview process for chief. The Lieutenants from the SHTPD will be interviewed. Will a decision be made as early as today? Will a walk on resolution to appoint be put on tonights agenda? We will see. I do hope they take as much time as needed to select the right person for the right reason." Apr 26, 11 10:55 AM

Southampton Town Board Appoints Wilson As Police Chief

What a disgrace the SH PBA and Suffolk County Conservative party is running the Town of Southampton. Assuming its the gang of 3 that is voting yes to appooint Wilson.
Malone is a liar he said he would step down a SH Town conservative leader should he win the council seat and resign as Deputy County Clerk. He has NOT. ATH and Bridget is just bought and sold by the PBA.
WHAT A DISGRACE THESE 3 ARE. I will not forget on election day.
Last opportunity to speak at the public portion regarding this will be Monday the meeting starts at 6 p.m." Apr 29, 11 7:17 PM

ATH, Bridget and Malone the people of SH know that opening up the interviews to others was just smoke and mirrors. Wilson was your pick all the while. Difficult decision? RIGHT! " Apr 29, 11 7:21 PM

I am writing this not because of who will be appointed as chief of the Southampton Town Police Department but WHY. Accusations have been circulating that this appointment was done because the Southampton PBA endorsed Mr. Wilson. The other accusation is that the Suffolk County Sheriff’s office and the Suffolk County Conservative leader are pushing for Mr. Wilson as well. If this were true, appointing someone as chief for these reasons would be dishonest.

When we elect people to the town board we expect them to be honorable and not act dishonest or inappropriately. I would like to point out that some of our elected officials have not been honorable and have acted inappropriately in things they say or do. I would like to start with Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst. When Ms.Throne-Holst was a councilwoman she voted yes in appointing someone as a councilman to fill the seat left empty by Mrs. Kabot. Rumors had it that this councilman defended a member of Ms. Throne-Holst’s family in East Hampton Town Court. Rumors have it that a relationship ensued between Anna and the lawyer (Councilman). My first question is, did the relationship start before or after she voted yes in appointing him to the town board? Was he paid for the legal work that he did for her family member? Something for the ethics board to look into? When Ms. Throne-Holst would take her dog to town hall, the issue of the dog came to light in the Southampton Press. She said that Frankie was a service dog (comfort dog). No one ever saw Frankie wearing a service jacket. Was the dog in fact a service dog, can a certificate be produced? When a question was asked of Ms. Throne-Holst whether a phone call was made to her by the Southampton Town police officer concerning the arrest of Ms. Kabot she stated no. We found out later, that a call was made.
A reporter from the Southampton Press lost his job because the (sh press) powers to be found out that a friendship existed between him and Ms. Throne-Holst. Many positive articles were written in favor of Ms. Throne-Holst. Maybe the press felt in was inappropriate of an employee of theirs to have a friendship with her so they let him go. Was this behavior dishonest on Anna’s part? Only she knows that, but was it inappropriate? I think it was.

As for Jim Malone, during the campaign for town council he said if he won the council seat he would resign as Deputy County Clerk. He also said during the campaign he would resign as leader of the conservative party in Southampton Town. Has he? As an appointed employee of Suffolk County Mr. Malone must complete a time sheet and has a certain amount of vacation time given to him. How can he have one full time job and one part time job? Does he use his vacation and personal time when he needs to attend town work sessions, town board meeting etc? Has he exhausted all his time for 2010?

When Bridget Fleming was asked about the Wilson appointment she said he was born in Southampton Hospital and had 25 years on the job. What! That it all she could come up with. What does being born in SH Hospital have to do with it? Is she trying to say that he is a local, so he is entitled to the job as chief? This statement was not dishonest, it was just plain stupid. So, both you and Anna should get out of town you don’t belong in elected office (not being born here).

Elected official should be held to a higher standard and not be involved in anything that is the least bit dishonest or inappropriate. My point is, if both ATH and Malone have been dishonest in the past are they being dishonest in this appointment? Are they doing it for self gain?
Many voters will be taking a mental note on Monday of who votes yes and if anyone votes no. " Apr 30, 11 10:25 AM

Nice try on the spin Bama-Slama
Who was silent on the Kratoville appointment?
It doesn't bother you why Wilson is being appoined? So you have a blind eye as to what is really going on, or you choose to.
Oh yea your a member of the republican party, sure you are.
You sound alot like some other spin master that we have not heard from yet today. He a loyal member of the Democratic Party too. " Apr 30, 11 5:54 PM

Well, if Jimmy MacDoogan and the rest of the SH Police Officers on this blog agree and feel that the town board have done their job then it must be so.
All because I posted 99% (1 post not sure of) facts and you look at it as discrediting ATH, your upset. The post of Jim Malone is 100% factual he is a liar and so full of himself. This is upsetting to me and should also be to every other tax payer with defending her. How much or what is it that you stand to gain from the gang of 3 (not sure on the #) or is it the 12 hour shifts.
MacDoogan you keep saying the BOARD feels, is the entire board voting for wilson or just the 3. We must wait on that comment. Its not a board of 3.
I have noticed that when you guys don't like what someone posted you attack them with stupid comments like yours, baymen3142, carson (gets the prize he needs to wash his mouth out with soap) very classy guy.
Re-Read some of the comments by your guys it seems it is them who needs Meds & some anger management classes, its free through the dept is it not? " May 1, 11 10:22 AM

Of course it was a political deal.
When the vote takes place tomorrow night at 6pm we will find out if the entire town board votes yes or just the gang of 3.

Should the conservative line go to Anna and Bridget, the republican candidates can always primary them.
" May 1, 11 8:06 PM

NTiger the proposition failed to pass in the 2007 election. I know you are a lawyer, can I ask how does that effect the Code? Does the town board have to repeal the law even though the proposition failed.
Are you tring to make a point that the town board cannot act as a board of commissioners because of the existing law?
Thanks

" May 2, 11 8:42 AM

First it was a very bad idea to compare what happened on 9/11 with your version of what is going on in the SHPD.

The way some people feel about the appointment of Chief Wilson has nothing to do with Wilson personally, I am sure he is a fine member of our community. The disagreement as to do with an appointment being made for political reasons, THAT’S THE ISSUE. The local PBA should not endorse anyone, nor should the Suffolk County Conservative Leader, nor should the Suffolk Sheriff have any input at all on whom they recommend. The town board should select with no interference from any outside agency or political party. Why was the PBA and others really in favor of Wilson? Was it because he was in favor of the 12 hour tours? Did the PBA feel they could get more out of Wilson when making negotiations? I have no idea what the answers are to these questions. I do know this is what some people are saying. This is a small town and news good and bad news travels fast. If we go back a few weeks the board was set to select Tenaglia and something changed. What changed? Ms. Graboski said that the local PBA and the Suffolk Sheriff and Conservative leader were interfering with the selection process. Ms. Graboski is not a liar, and I believe what she stated is true. One speaker at last night’s town board meeting stated that political pressure was put on the members of the town board to select Wilson. People are talking, and they believe that 3 town board members, ATH, Bridget and Malone were promised favors for appointing Wilson as Chief. We all can read between the lines and know that political deals are made all the time. Some also like to compare the Kraterville appointment with this. Let me just say this appointment for chief if done for political reasons is CORRUPT. The Kraterville appointment may be against a civil service rule but I don’t think it was corrupt or violated any ethic codes in the TOS.
If no investigation is conducted getting to the bottom of what happened during the selection process then people will make up their own minds on who to vote out of office in November.
Note to ATH: You showed your arrogance last night, you are forgetting who you work for.
I think Marietta Seaman should run against you for Supervisor. Hint, Hint.


" May 3, 11 11:36 AM

jimmyk you are correct, not only was the room filled with PBA members but some stood right behind her. I just know she (Anna) arranged this knowing that members of the public (who were very upset) would be addressing their comments to her. She wanted the speakers to feel intimidated.
Anna has met her match with Marietta Seaman, Marietta has bigger one's than she has. Run Marietta show this witch who's town board room that is and put some class in the Supervisor seat." May 3, 11 9:51 PM

The message will be clear this November the voters in the Town of Southampton are ready for a change too.
Re-read your comment, you are saying it's ok to have elected officials who are corrupt for the good of the police department. Now I've heard everything. l
" May 4, 11 9:02 AM

So many police officers on this blog its like happy hour at Tom McBrien’s, in Hampton Bays hey Carson?
To all the self-righteous phonies (Bama-Slama) that are so full of it. Highhatsize may have used the wrong comparison but he was making a point that most of you choose to ignore because you are so bent on winning your point. Some people feel that some members of our town board made an appointment for political reasons. Some feel as though we are living under a dictatorship and the pba and some board members are the dictators. According to some it’s perfectly acceptable that members of the police department attend town board meetings wearing police uniforms (I don't). I doubt that anyone here has a problem with authority. The problem is that we have some very arrogant people wearing these uniforms. Some feel that the Town of Southampton owes them, and that gives them the right to be bullies.

Let’s get one thing straight the town board room is the PEOPLE’S ROOM, any taxpayer or visitor can make a comment at the public portion of a town board meeting on any subject. It is that person’s right to do so. It was not inappropriate of the Seaman’s to speak at Monday’s meeting and THE TIME FOR PUBLIC COMMENT DID NOT PASS. Do you make up your own rule’s as you go along, where do you get your information from? What was belligerent and an embarrassment is when the PBA stormed the town board room a few years ago with uniformed police in tow.
On the whole we have a good police department in this town but what is wrong is people like you.
Lastly you complain that Chief Wilson and his family had to endure the rambling at Mondays meeting. Well didn’t Capt. Tenaglia and his family have to endure articles in the paper and comments here?
" May 4, 11 8:20 PM

Some words to discribe some members of our town board:
Currupt, dishonest, untrustworthy. It's not over, November will be here before we know it. " May 5, 11 10:58 AM

Thank you Turkey Bridge aka George Lynch loyal member of the Democratic Party and loyal supporter of Anna Throne Holst. I'm sure Chris Nuzzi will now be able to sleep now that you have given your approval. What about Malone no special thanks to him or was he too much of an embarrassment hiding under Anna’s skirt during (as you say) the provocations.
BTW were the provocations at all like when you pounded on the podium during the public portion of a town board meeting a few months ago, having one of your tantrums? Integrity neither you or your buddies know the first think about integrity. Poor turkey bridge lets not pick on him.

" May 5, 11 6:38 PM

HaHaHaHaHaHa peoplefirst

Golden Boy you are correct. Pete Collins President of the CSEA was promised that job for endorsing Ms. ATH; I just never thought it would be 160k. Pete kept his mouth shut during the pay increase neg. for the town employees in 2010, he sold them out. He did not embarrass Anna during the negotiation by speaking at the town board meeting. If you remember the year before when Ms. Anna was running for Supervisor, Pete Collins attended a town board meeting complaining loudly about the layoffs and had several union employees speak. This was all a show for Anna, to make Anna look good because she pretended to against the layoffs. Remember her commercial in the radio; layoffs hurt people, what a phony she is. Do you also remember Pat Aube President of the PBA spoke in opposition of the layoffs of town employees too? He the pres. of he pba what did he care about the regular town emp? This also was a show for Anna. Did anyone speak this past year when some employees were let go and forced into retirement? No, no one.
If you look at a web site that Ms. Anna has you will see a photo of her, Pete Collins and Pat Aube.
This molly person is a plant (potted) put here to stir the pot. I find her comical.

Your defense of Turkey Bridge is very admirable but not necessary. The Turkey told me a few posts ago that everyone knew he was George, it was nothing new to anyone, except for me. So, it’s ok you can relax, he’s fine with it. Happy Mothers Day! " May 6, 11 11:42 AM

number19 claims to be an outsider and just a concerned citizen. Would an outsider participate in a rally for Tim Bishop handing out press kits in favor of healthcare reform? This rally took place in August of 2009 in front of Bishop’s office on Hampton Road, Anna Throne-Holst was present as well. Isn’t that so number 19? This guy is entrenched with the Democratic Party and a big supporter of Anna Throne-Holst and Bridget. What we have here is just another phony player, just like the rest of the bunch." May 7, 11 2:13 AM

Ms. Throne-Holst replied during the public portion of Monday town board meeting that "it wasn’t procedure to entertain a back-and-forth during the public comment session".
I came across this doing some research about the public portion of meeting. Go to the public portion of the town board meeting of September 28, 2010 6p.m. The public portion goes on with one person with a back and forth for over 30 minutes. All of the town board members and the town attorney were in a back and forth discussion with this person speaking. So what is Anna Throne-Holst talking about that it is not procedure. She is a liar and changes the rules to suit herself or the situation. " May 7, 11 7:48 PM

Clam pie what’s it all about for you?
This was a PUBLIC PORTION of a Town Board Meeting and board membes were in a deep discussion with the speaker. The board members were not silent. All parties were participating giving opinions, a BACK and FORTH exchange was definitely going on with the speaker. So I don't know what you are talkinga about. All Anna had to do was answer the question asked of her at the meeting on Monday and no issue would have been made." May 8, 11 6:59 PM

Its you that is not getting it! I think the voters get it and will vote accordingly in November." May 9, 11 11:27 AM

Nuzzi Not Sure If He Will Accept GOP Nomination For Supervisor

Are you serious EEHomie? Bridget Flemming lost first time around too, did you forget? Both her and ATH were unknown when running for town council. first time around. Bridget can walk out of a work session to take a cell phone call, I guess that is ok. Also lets not forget how & why Wilson was appointed chief, don't even try to say this was not a back room deal. As far as Kratoville goes not even the ethics board could find anything wrong with the appointment So who is trying to pull the wool over who's eyes? " May 19, 11 10:25 PM

" May 19, 11 10:34 PM

Come on guys, Nuzzi was going to run all along. They were just trying to keep it quiet putting some mystique into the process. Think about it, Nuzzi is to young to just spend time with his family and not work.

Talking about elected official being told what to do, take a look at ATH she has been bought and sold by the PBA, CSEA Pete Collins and anyone else for a price. Lets see who the Conservative's endorse. " May 20, 11 11:25 AM

Did you forget when Bridget ran for this position she said she would continue working as an Attorney. Has she closed her office? The answer is No. This position as Councilwoman is part time for Bridget. Word has it she is hardly in town hall.
BTW $60,000 is darn good for a part time job especially in this economy. " May 23, 11 11:29 AM

2012 Southampton Town Budget Will Include Staff Cuts

Respect for ATH are you kidding. Now she wants to do layoffs in the police dept and rank and file employees. Her butt is on the line now that she has someone stepping up and running against her in this years election. If following the law by retiring police officers after 20 years would have saved the town 3-4 million why didn't she propose this for the past 2 years. It takes no brain matter on Anna's part to use all the cost cutting ideas that Linda Kabot tried to get passed. If those here remember, all Anna did was vote down Kabot's cost cutting ideas.
Be very careful Anna even suggesting laying off police officers got Kabot arrested.
" Sep 22, 11 12:28 AM

1640 read the article again, (some of) the police officers that have 20 years in will be taken out of the budget and retired. Then, new younger officers will be hired at the lower salary, saving the town money according to the article.

I agree with you about the town cars, all personnel that have take home car's should have to give the car back and leave them parked in Hampton Bays or at Town Hall. What a waste of money giving take home car's to employees living in Brookhaven, E. Hampton etc. At $3.89 per gallon think about the consumption of gas that is used and we the tax payers are paying for it. ENOUGH! " Sep 22, 11 10:25 AM

As highhatsize said above, at least Kabot made an attemp to clean up the mess. She cut the budget millions when she was in office. ATH just now after 2 years in office is trying to implement Linda budget for 2012 . ATH is the one who as failed the tax payers.

Linda do you remember some of Anna's promises in the 2009 campaign.
She said, she only would need 1.5 people in her office. Does she have 1.5 people in her office?
Do you remember at first she was not in favor of privayizing the shelter, and later wanted to give 1 year severance pay to employees laid off? She really does not care about the tax payers, she is not even a home owner, she rents.
She also ran on being a consensus builder and bringing parties to the table.
As supervisor has she reached across the isle? All she does is complain about the majority and how the TB needs balance. Yes, her balance more like Fleming who votes with her every time. Problem is, Anna can't get along with others that disagree with her. Look at what Alex Gregor said about her recently. Alex is not always right but in this case he know who and what Anna is.
Do you remember the reso she blocked (in Jan?) about the Budget and Financee committee. Nancy really took her to task on that issue.
Remember reso 2010-633, Anna and TA Sordi tried to spend $500,000 of restricted funds. Nancy put a stop to that too. The other TB members would not have voted yes if they knew it was restricted funds. An ATH and Sordi screw up.

I believe Anna said anyone can film a video in town hall even for campaign purposes so if anyone wants to do this I think Anna said she will provide a key. How about that folks. " Oct 31, 11 10:33 AM

This is for Joe Shaw..
This is the way I understood what you stated above, why the film was a newsworthy event
An editorial decision was made because this type of campaign video has never been done before? Also, because $30,000 (primary expense) was spent on this video which was the biggest campaign expense by ATH.
You also stated that this should in no way be seen as any kind of endorsement.
I will believe that statement when this paper announce's their endorsement for supervisor.

" Oct 31, 11 11:02 PM

YOU HAVE USED THAT LINE WAY TO MANY TIMES ANNA. IT IS YOU THAT NEEDS TO GET OVER YOURSELF. YOU ARE A LIAR AND DISHONEST.
THE VOTERS OF OUR TOWN ARE ON TO YOU, THEY KNOW WHAT A PHONY YOU ARE.
POLITICS NOT PEOPLE THAT'S YOU OLD GIRL. GET IT! " Nov 1, 11 12:02 PM

SayWhat
What you stated could be fair commets but you left out so many pieces to the puzzle. I don't know how long you have followed this saga, so I will post some info and questions for you to fill in the blanks you left out and try to educate you on how a conspiracy could very well have taken place.
1. Are you aware of the events that took place with the SH Town PBA when Linda was Supervisor.
2. Are you aware of how the then president of the PBA Pat Aube and the VP spoke to Kabot at the public portion of a town board meeting in 2008. This was all because of Linda trying to enforce the 20 year law for PO's. She was told she would be a one term supervisor.
3. Do you think that Linda was liked by the PBA and its members, or the WHBPD they have the same 20 year rule that sh town has?
4. Do you really think that the call the then president of the PBA made to Anna in the middle of the night was just a supporter of her's giving her the news?
5. Are you aware of the letter sent to Linda from an annoymous woman, telling her about the phone call made to Anna . Now this letter is what opened up this investigation into the midnight phone call and pulling of phone records.
6. Anna was endorced by the SH PBA because she was not in favor of enforcing the 20 year law, retiring police officers. Would the PBA like to see Linda gone and Anna Supervisor? I think so, what say you?
7. Do you think it's possible that the WH PD got behind Linda for whatever the reason, punched in her plate # and knew who they had.
Do you still think that the pba president was just a supporter giving Anna the news? Do you still think its was silly of people to think that this was a conspiracy?
The comment "trick-linda-into-drinking-and-get-her-pulled-over-gate", I don't believe anyone tricked linda into drinking because she was not drunk, and found not guilty, remember?
In your last comment "Bottom line, don't blame someone else because you got caught". So your saying Linda was drunk and got caught?
My last comment to you Mr. SayWhat is - are you trying to pass yourself as the voice of reason here? When you are really a voice in favor of ATH.

Note to Neil Tiger: Its refreshing to read the truth you stated about Anna Throne-Holst. It took courage to step up and speak out.

" Nov 2, 11 12:17 AM

Neil you are correct with your reply to SayWhat. I would like to add that ATH has had the support from the PBA and I'm not talking about the endorsements. I'm talking about the campaign donations that by the way were over the amount allowed by law.

For the record I found it very difficult just now to find this article. It seems not to be anywhwere on 27 east. I had to go to my comments and find this story Throne-Holst and Team Release Video. Very strange that its gone right after Mr. Tiger's comments were posted about ATH." Nov 2, 11 8:56 PM

Anna Throne-Holst Unopposed For Second Term As Southampton Town Supervisor

Sounds like sour grapes on the part of SayWhat and VOS, it's not easy to hear the truth about Anna Throne-Holst being liar, threatens those who oppose her etc, etc
Now other posters are being told what not to do, complaining about extremely long posts. Well I'm sure you would have liked this news (that most of us already new) swept under the rug. Well this is a small town and everyone know's what the truth is sooner or later. One can just hope that the voters find out in time and vote Anna out of office.
" Nov 3, 11 12:58 PM

SayWhat, has Neil given you enough information to shut you up? I hope not because I'm really enjoying this.
I just love mikeaxelrad's comment hahahahaha, he's so drunk on Anna's koolaid he can't think straight. What a shame this is. " Nov 3, 11 6:35 PM

Let’s just see who nails this election. It's unfortunate that all the voters will not find out in time that Anna Throne-Holst is a liar, dishonest and unethical.
She has some nerve appointing a town attorney in 2010 knowing that he had a poor work ethic. As far as doing it as a favor for the old County Executive of Nassau County because of his connection to the NYS Democrat leader sounds like politics (not people) to me. So her ads, campaign mail outs and the video Southampton Project is a sham and so is Anna.

Ethics Board Dismisses Complaint Over Use Of Town Facilities In Throne-Holst Campaign Video

The ethics board members were never going to find her or Bridget quilty of anything. Darlene Trogue was an employee of the town and a member of the ethics board. When she opposed Anna she was fired for some made up reason.
After what was learned here by Neil Tiger that Anna is a liar, dishonest and unethical no one should be voting for her.
It not about people is politics at its worst. Neil Tiger as endorsed Linda Kabot on a new radio ad. I have to give him credit for standing up and speaking out about. " Nov 7, 11 10:37 AM

Could you tell us what favors? I want dates and specfics please.
Do you mean the appointment of Russell Kraterville? I did blog that I was opposed to the way he was appointed back when it happened. That appointment was out in the open good or bad. From what I see he is very qualified and is doing a wonderful job.
On the other hand Anna knew about the poor work ethic the town attorney had that she appointed to the town board in 2010. She did it anyway for the demorcrat Nassau County Executive Tom Suozzi, as a favor to the NYS Democrat Leader. Any comments on this Razza??? ATH was trying to pull the wool over everyone's eye by putting out a video about PEOPLE NOT POLITICS. She is a political as the day is long. She is just trying to protend she is something else.
Razza are you only motivated by your obsession for Anna Throne-Holst and are blind or just plain drunk on the drinking of Anna's koolaid. You have no real knowledge of the facts and dont even care to educate yourself on what is really going on.

Fleming, Scalera Win Southampton Board Race; Throne-Holst Reelected

The town board is right where they have been for the past 2 years. Anna won but what did she gain? " Nov 9, 11 12:11 AM

peoplefirst
We will see what happens when they count the absentee ballots but #'s usually follow the way people voted at the polls. If Scalers wins tell me peoplefirst what did Anna gain besides more of your hilarious empty posts. Anna not fast breathing a huge sigh of relief because Scalera may just be taking Nancy Graboski seat. When Scalera does take her seat on Jan 1 all we will have for the next 2 years is Anna complaining about the majority. Well I guess Linda will have to come back in 2013 and finally kick your lying butt out of office.
Progressnow your comments are killing me if you really love sweeping victories, just wait until until 2012 when the republicans take the whitehouse and the senate, we already have the majority in congress.
Enjoy your victory, and remember get over yourself!" Nov 9, 11 11:35 AM

Is it you who is wondering if it will become too big an issue to ignore? Is it you that can't ignore it? Very strange post, very weird. " Nov 11, 11 11:03 PM

Say What
You say to be fair it's important to realize that there was much less of a need to bring out the vote for the supervisor race this year than in 2009. Oh really, I don't know how you could say that. Anna Throne-Holst spent a HUGH amount of money on campaign mailouts, newspaper ad's, radio time, TV time (Channel 26), Southamptn Project video $30,000 etc. So if the need was less this year than in 2009 why all the spending? It appears that both Anna & the democrat party did think a need existed.
I believe you have no idea what your talking about so no need to state that your comments don't claim to be fact. I think that is clear you never stated any facts.
When facts are stated, and many have responded to your post providing facts, you just ignore them.
I don't know how you can claim to respond to posts of others because all your comments are full of spin.
" Nov 13, 11 8:41 PM

The point that you left out was ATH was helping Bridget win after she cut a deal to make sure Bridget did not get the Indy endorsement. How loyal of ATH to help Bridget, what a peach she is. I'm not suprised that you make light of illegal donations considering who you supported in the supervisor race.
BTW it is you who ignores facts when presented.
Tell us what makes you think Bridget has her eys on the big chair as you stated above.
