I was saddened to learn yesterday that Alderwoman DiBella is continuing to support a non-Democrat for the office of District Attorney, and is going so far as to host a fund-raiser for this person at her home. Mrs. DiBella has the right to support whom ever she wants. However, as an Ulster County Democratic Committeewoman to publicly work against the Democratic candidate is against the rules and unfortunately that is exactly what she is doing.
So, I respectfully ask that Mrs. DiBella resign as a committee person. By resigning it will allow Mrs. DiBella to support her candidate and save her from a formal hearing where she would be ousted. This really is an important move, what Mrs.DiBella fails to realize or just chooses to ignore is that her support for this candidate does not only effect Jonathan Sennett, the Democratic Candidate for D.A., but it also effects City Court candidate, Judge James P. Gilpatric and Aderman-at-Large James Noble who very well may not have the Independence and Conservative lines that the candidate she supports has. There is also the option that Mrs. DiBella call off her fundraiser and do the right thing........I won't hold my breath.
