Hein Sight is 20/20
I attended the first of what will probably be may debates tonight between Democrat Mike Hein, Republican Len Bernardo, and Independent candidate Allan Wikeman.
First I realize that I am a Hein supporter and my opinion is some what tainted but Hein blew away Bernardo...it was not even close.
Hein was the only candidate that provided a vision for the future of Ulster County in regards to Tourism, which was the them of the debate. He was confident knew facts and figures and proved that Hein Sight is 20/20.
Len Bernardo, seemed very nervous and uncomfortable, to be honest I was disappointed in his performance tonight. I was expecting much better...he rambled at times and really did not answer questions directly as asked. Bernardo did get better as the debate went on...Hein does have a 6 month jump on him so I'll give him a pass on today's debate...if Bernardo does not catch up fast and I mean fast...Hein is going to destroy Bernardo 2:1 in November.
As for Allan Wikeman...his heart is in the right place...he may have actually done better than Bernardo.
One thing is for sure, Hein is the only candidate ready for prime time....the others have SERIOUS work to do.
