Blaber News Person of the Week: Ulster County Chairman David Donaldson


This weeks person of the week is Chairman of the Ulster County Legislator David Donaldson. Chairman Donaldson has done wonders for Ulster County, whether it be as a Kingston Alderman or the Ulster County legislator. In both of those bodies he served as minority leader and witnessed both of them come part of the Majority under his leadership. In 2005 after the democrats took back the legislator after 26 years of being in the Minority Mr. Donaldson was elected chair of that body, rightfully so.


He has served Ulster County well this year. Under his leadership with the close work of the legislator a budget was passed that is right in line with the cost of living for Ulster County residents. Also under his leadership a more important thing happened, a milestone, the passing of the Ulster County charter. This important task that will transform Ulster County to the next level and bring accountability to Ulster County was put on the ballot to be voted on. Their were great obstacles to try and prevent this including a powerful financial machine that poured thousands into seeing the charter fail. In the end that did not happen because of Chairman Donaldson and the Ulster County legislators tireless efforts the charter was successful and passed in both Kingston and Ulster County respectively.

I've had the pleasure of meeting Donaldson in person and not only is he truly a survivor but he also is GENUINELY compassionate to ALL Americans,unlike most of our friends on the RIGHT side of the aisle. My only concern is whether or not he is going to be able to convince them that he is not "going to take their guns away"! I can see all the Righteous Right running to their typewriters now and getting ready to label him a "socialist". OOOOOOOOOoooooo the S word has been uttered. Hey maybe those on the other side can take time out from divorce court,child custody battles,drunk driving court appearances and having to explain how they can have a GIRLFRIEND on the side while fighting to protect the sanctity of marriage(WHATEVER THE HELL THAT MEANS)to listen and learn from the likes of Donaldson and others who truly understand the Constitution and American ideals. One can only imagine how disapponted they must be after the recent elections and the fact that never again will OUR country have to withstand a special Sunday night session of Congress for Terri Schiavo. By the way,has anyone seen or heard from Tom(Badhairpieceformen)Delay? I mean besides being seeen sitting ringside at championship boxing matches. But then again it is all probably "Clinton's fault". LOL Good riddance republican party maybe now you can back to doing what you do best,bombing abortion clinics(in christ's name of course)throwing sulfuric acid at reporters,using the DRIVE THRU window at divorce court,hiding your affections for underage boys and dressing up nicely on sundays as you portray yourselves as "soldiers for christ"! Man what an army.

In power not even a year, and the Liberal-Democratic Caucus in Ulster County is on the verge of civil war. Hee Hee....Gotta love it. I look forward to Chairman Noonan this time next year leading the Republican Majority in the Legislature.

Chairman Noonan? As in Glenn Noonan(former COKE driver and user)LOL Well actually that would be an excellent choice as he is a professional drunk driver and can help the residents of New York tackle this major problem head on. Heck maybe he can even give us a demonstration on how one can fall asleep at the Zodiac Lounge in New Paltz and still not spill a drop of his martini! Great choice Rush Jr.
