Bruce Tuchman who's a nice guy but very misguided in his support for Bradley, wrote a very interesting comment on the Freeman website in response to an article the Freeman did on the D.A. candidates the other day. In the article Tuchman tries to justify why Conservative candidate Vincent Bradley is still in the race for D.A., I think Mr. Tuchman should learn that some things are just not justifiable. In his letter he claims that Bradley was not treated like a Democrat. Are you kidding me? The guy was invited into the process and lost fair and square to Democrat Jonathan Sennett not once but twice! Mr. Tuchman also states that the Dem's should unite behind Vince Bradley or we'll have a GOP D.A. At this point we must wonder if Tuchman, who owns the very popular Uptown Cigar Shop , is putting some of that funny tobacco in his cigars. Is this not the same Tuchman who thought we should unite behind Andrew Cuomo for Governor? Andrew Cuomo was smart enough to drop out before the primary and went on to bigger and better things. Mr. Tuchman's friend should learn the same lesson.
Tonight, I was making some voter identification calls, and I got a very positive response on the Democratic candidates for November. A lot of people, however, are undecided or don't know who the candidates are.... one such call that was humorous and sad at the same time...It was a call for Kingston Mayor... when I asked her who she was voting for in the Mayoral election without skipping a beat she responded Mayor T.R. Gallo. Now, I didn't have the heart to tell this woman that our beloved mayor has been dead for over 5 years but I think she'll figure out somethings up come November 6th. While we all wish T.R. was still in charge and running Kingston, he's not, it's simply amazing how anyone can be so misinformed and disconnected about their local community.
