  1. Thanks Mahatma ... dad always said I was the sharpest spoon in the drawer !
  2. Methinks you have hit the proverbial nail on the head !
  3. I see , after posting , that a Candidate for a Legislative Seat has posted an article here Chris . Finally someone has come forward with their own ideas on what they plan to try to do if elected .
  4. Economic Issues Spur Interest in Local Government

    Thank You Christina . Yours is the very First article that has not just thrown around some speaking points and facts that , quite frankly , at first blush seem to smack of mud slinging . In reading your article , which I am taking as your platform , you have laid out your plans and ideas so that we may make an informed decision .
  5. Things is getting a mite edgy down there now !
  6. Okay ... let me rephrase that a bit . Seems there is , after so many years , a lot of interest in the buisness of the County Legislature . And you must admit it is unusual to have so many Candidates interested in Legislative seats in one cycle . Now understand , I am not casting aspersions on Any of the Legislatures or Candidates .Hell , what I know about politics you could fit in a thimble . What I do know it IS time for a change , not just the speaking points , but actual change , end the top down politics , implement real transparency and accountability to tax payers . Not so much to ask one would think !?
  7. And ... it’s another one of prince andrews quick fix ideas to grab that almighty tax dollar out of our pockets . Brick and mortar stores are suffering from internet sales ... yes ! But who is it that for so many years made New York buisness Unfriendly , yup same idiot gubernor ! Over the years how many shoppers have gone to PA to save high sales tax on purchases . Then it was found one could deny Cowmoo his “share” by shopping on the Interwebby ! And after all this time Santulli is backing this tax grab to help with his piss poor management of the County coffers . I hope like hell voters are keeping track of all these facts , adding them up and making the best decision they can at the polls this year ! And quick question ... what ship is sinking on the Legislative level of Chemung County that is causing this mass exodus and what is finally coming out to cause so many new candidates on the ballot ?
  8. I would like to see all the platforms these good folks are running on , just to compare them side by side .

    Oh , I agree . Between the D.A. and the State is our weak link . That coupled with the deals made and bail projects , especially on the local level the Randy’s are arrested and hit the streets an hour later ... and they know the system and laws protect them so where’s the deterrent?
  10. Going to be an interesting election cycle !

    If the State would free up the Judges hands so they could adjudicate then maybe we could get the Randy’s off the streets. When it’s “ suggested “ by the State that the Judge not remand a perp to jail because they don’t have money or means to pay a fine imposed I believe that’s where some of the problems start . The Courtroom still is the Judges playpen but the State only gives them so many toys to play with .

    Yes , and Randy has a long history with another Jurisdiction as well , the years have not been good to him ... or is it the meth ?!
  13. Well , let’s see ... Governor giving out a 20 million dollar prize but City and County must play nice . I read this as County being pissed off that City knows County gets the lions share of the prize so City decides to push back ! Why push back you say ? City is tired ( as are other municipalities ) of the County Bullies pushing their agendas on the City . So show me the 20 million would be split evenly to help the City possibly become solvent again and I may ... may , just agree with some points of this letter . Otherwise my “ Spidey Senses “ are still in full suspicion mode .
  14. Kudo’s To the Students and Staff at Elmira High School ! Clearly we have some hope for our futures in these young men and women who instead of walking out of class’s for 17 minutes of cell phone time and assing around in general , found a more productive way of airing and discussing their concerns !
