A recent poll that was done on the blog puts Cahill as the clear winner in a Democratic primary for County Executive. The poll which went on for a week asked people who they would vote for if the primary for County Executive where held today, with the candidates being Kevin Cahill, Mike Hein and Sue Zimet.
Kevin Cahill stomped the competition receiving more then 54% of the vote with Sue Zimet coming in a distant second at 25% and Mike Hein trailing at just 21%. Now this poll is hardly scientific but it does go to show how popular Kevin Cahill is, and proves that he could be a very strong challenger to lead the Democratic ticket next November.
On another note, a race that seems to be ignored is County Comptroller. It seemed up until a few months ago that Lisa Cutten would be a shoe in, until she shot herself in the foot running against Sottile in an 11th hour write-in effort for mayor. Oddly enough Jim Sottile himself has been talked about for the position and with his auditing background may not be a bad choice. Please see our current poll for more details.
