Richard Cahill, the one term wonder from Kingston's sixth ward who lost his bid for mayor to incumbent James Sottile has vowed to stay active in the local political scene with a new blog: Cahill on Kingston, " if the Democrats thought they could get rid of me by beating me in a "close" mayoral election they're sadly mistaken" exclaimed a bitter Cahill. If I'm not mistaken it was the people that got rid of Alderman Cahill, in what was a foolish attempt by the freshman alderman to run against a well seasoned and well funded poltical power house by the name of Jim Sottile. Alderman Cahill would have easily of been getting ready to serve his second term as alderman of ward six.
Cahill immediately has used his blog to take cheap shots at myself and others including the the city, over it's possible funding of a rehabilitation program that helps former felons to become productive members of society. The program (Save Them Now), is run by a nice man by the name of Ronnie Wade who's program has been very successful in it's efforts. Cahill on this issue and many others, simply can't see the forest from the trees and that is why Kingston sent him packing.
Than again, maybe it's me, I have nothing against Rich Cahill except for serious philosophical differences, and if he is contained on a blog and a public access tv show and out of policy making decisions, then I guess I'm satisfied.
