There has been a lot of fighting these past few months by Democrats, much having to do with the D.A.'s race. Many friendships lost or severely damaged but, the past is the past. It's time to move forward, there is a lot of work to do. We as Democrats need to unite as one. That is one thing we have always been good at...we can fight like cats and dogs but when it comes to election season we put are differences aside for the good of the party. This year will be our true test in the County Legislature...we have a great group of candidates running, there are a lot of town races up that also have put fourth a great group of candidates to run. Kingston is no different with almost a full slate of qualified candidates and our Mayor running on a record of accomplishment. We can win these races handedly, if we work together in a progressive manner.
However, if we stray from our core values and beliefs or if we chose to half support any of our candidates we will lose. That is something that none of us want to happen and quite frankly it doesn't have to happen. I know at the end of the day we will all unite as one. That day was yesterday.
I certainly take part of the blame for the divide in the party and I take full responsibility for my part. I would like to take this opportunity to publicly apologize to Chairman John Parete ( I already have personally), for accusing him of being anything less then genuine. He is a true leader and I know that under his leadership and the leadership of Assemblyman Kevin Cahill and the top of our ticket Jonathan R. Sennett we will be very successful come this November.
