Cahill to Kingston residents : Don't put money in the meters!


An excerpt from the Daily Freeman, Saturday, June 23rd :

An attorney who is challenging the mayor for his office in the November election, Cahill, R-Ward 6, has said he has told motorists they don't have to put money in the meters because, in his august opinion, the meters are simply illegal.

Some of the locations previously identified as enforceable areas were superseded by subsequent legislation, he claims. Meters at those locations are, therefore, not legal. Ipso facto, he says, you don't have to put money into the meters.

Before we risk unnecessarily complying with any other laws that have technical defects, perhaps the alderman should enlighten us. Are there any other parts of the city, county, state or federal codes that the alderman would like to pass judgment on? Perhaps he'd like to take up the issue of the legality of the federal income tax, for instance.

This is simply irresponsible, Mr.Cahill is advocating that people break the law. Whether you agree with the meters or not they're there and they are most certainly legal. I urge people not to fall for Cahill's political games. How will the Alderman feel when the little old lady that listens to Rich ends up with a boot on her car?

A call to the purchasing office put to rest any doubt of impropriety . There was no mistake, we followed everything in the city code to the tee said purchasing agent Brian J.Woltman. Again, this is Mr.Cahill trying to make a political issue out of nothing.

Brian Woltman is not a lawyer. I trust Cahill's interpretation of the law more than I accept Woltman's.

Richard Cahill, Candidate for Mayor said...

I must correct you, Jeremy, as well as the Daily Freeman. I never advised anyone to not pay the parking meters. What I said was that if anyone received a ticket for the meters on Albany Avenue, they would have an excellent defense in court.

Those meters are not in accordance with the enabling legislation. Section 2 of the resolution specifically states that all ordinances dealing with parking meters that are inconsistent with the list in the resolution are rescinded and appealed.

I hope this clears everything up.

OF COURSE HE WANTS PEOPLE TO BREAK THE LAW! LOOK WHAT HE DID WITH TONY SINAGRA'S PETITIONS TWO YEARS AGO!

I must correct you, Mr. Cahill. You always try to reinvent unflattering facts about you once they are revealed to the public. You should have known to revoke old legislation if you didn't want the mayor to put up meters in old spots.

As a lawyer you should know better. You didn't, and now its blowing up in your face.

I hope this clears everything up.

Again, let me start, as I always do, to say that I am a life-long Democrat, and have always supported the Democratic Mayoral candidate in the past. I always emphasize this because I know many think if I support Cahill I must be a stupid Republican party hack, you know like .....is for the Dems. Anyway, I compare Sottile with Bush. Now you may say, what the hell is he smoking or drinking or both? Guess what, my head is very clear, clearer than many of the bloggers here. Bush does anything he wants, breaks the law left and right, and blames the Dems for not being tough enough on terrorism. Stupid, winless, wrong war in Iraq, well, it was the Dems who voted for it! (Let's leave out the lies the Dems were told about WMD's, credited to faulty intelligence. There was definitely faulty intelligence, and it still sits in the Oval Office.) But....I digress. The parking meter law says the new law supersedes the old. It's in black and white. So Sottile says, no, that's not what I think. (it's in black and white Jim, can you read?) But who does Jeremy blame, of course, it's Cahill for telling people to break the law. It's Cahill for actually paying attention to the law. He's the bad guy, it wasn't me. This is why "they" hate Cahill. For far too many years this Council has done what it pleases, regardless of what the law says. Now, here is a lawyer saying, hold it, that's not how it works. The status quo starts to sweat. Damn, our little clique has been invaded by someone who may actually know something. That can't happen. Let's get out the hacks to tell all the little sheep just how bad a guy he is. Let's make some "stuff" up. We'll just blame him. Most people don't pay much attention, they'll believe us. They believe most of the "stuff" (I would love use another word starting with "S", but...) that's written. Most are more concerned with how poor Paris is doing. When this story first appeared in the Freeman, Jennifer Ringwood said the meters should not be there. But, she doesn't want to pay for her own campaign, so her opinion will rapidly change. At lease DiBella never gets in the flip-flop mode, she always asks Jim how high she should jump before daring a thought of her own. Much easier for someone not too smart anyway. My only question Jeremy, will this comment see the light of day, or will this be one you conveniently "lose" and then staunchly defend that you print all comments unless they break the blog rules, which of course, change as they need to? (I know little dick, too long-winded. I must be a Republican. Sorry, just a bit too smart to be snowed, that's all. At one time that was considered a good thing.)

OH NO....HERE GOES LITTLE DICK AGAIN POSTING ANONYMOUSLY AND TELLING US HE'S A DEMOCRAT - GOD SAVE US !!!!

To Pippy Jocularity:

Apparently, you cannot read. If you read Cahill's comments, you would know that the resolution passed by the Council did rescind the prior code. He cited it.

I know you hate the guy --probably jealousy that he is quoted and a "genius" like yourself is ignored. But, at least read the comments before engaging your mouth.

Little Dick. God is busy. Start small, just ask him to give you brain first before saving us all.

You guys just cannot stand that Cahill is right and Sottile is wrong. I hope Cahill wins the election just to drive you all crazy!!

If this cahill guy wins, the only way Kingston gets one red cent from Albany is if they think he is somehow related to Kevin. Otherwise Kingston gets nothing.

post 10:55 might have a point...i remember little dick for no other reason than he's retarded, publicly attacking joe bruno in the paper

Obviously, you forgot about Senator Larkin. He will deliver the $$ as always. Nice try though

Jeremy, what happened to my post about Sottile/Pataki? Conveniently lost when I made some good points? Stop the charade that this website prints all comments. And I am supposed to respect your unbiased assertions! What a joke!

larkin won't deliver a centavo as long as bruno is in charge - again, little dick attacked bruno publicly, like a retard

Cahill never attacked Joe Bruno. I defy you to prove otherwise.

G.R. said...

Maybe he was talking about D.A. Bruno, you know the guy that fired him from the Rennselear (sp) County D.A.'s office. Not before putting pissant A.D.A. Cahill on toilet duty for 2 weeks.

Hey!! Cahill has a blog running. www.cahillformayor.blogspot.com

to jeremy: When Cahill supposedly said these things, to whom was he speaking? Did you, yourself, hear him say it? Did someone tell you what he said?
I heard the proposal read and saw the legislation in print. It did rescind the previous law. Who said it didn't? Will you beloieve what you yourself can hear and see or what you are told?

it was in the freeman, you dipshit...he (or you) attacked him while sucking up to bonacic...it's in black and white

k said...

The dopey blog makes an unfair reference to Hugh Reynolds Column. Cahill tries to portray Reynolds as siding with him but leaves out the fact that hes aid that listening to Cahill was like eating Cold Cereal...that the energy to chew was not worth it or something to that effect. To be fair, the article pretty much called you a moron.
