Nina the Democratic County Clerk?
Some one pointed out to me the other day when discussing the County Clerk's race that takes place next year, that Nina Postupack, a registered Republican who was crossed endorsed by Dem's in 05, received more votes on the Democratic line than by her own party.
Sure enough Nina received 22, 384 on the Democratic line and 17,881 on the GOP line in 2005, replacing long serving County Clerk Al Spada, who retired a year prior.
So, essentially, Mrs. Postupack is our Democratic County Clerk. It will be interesting to see what happens next year, smart money says that Postupack may again get a free ride. She's a good County Clerk and well respected by both sides of the aisle.
Off in the distance is Democratic and Working Families candidate for Comptroller Elliott Auerbach and I, in front of Blaber Manor, on his was to the Immaculate Conception bazaar earlier in the month.
Reynolds Back In Action
Hugh Reynolds made his debut Thursday, in the Kingston Times, same City Beat column, different venue. It's good the have Hugh back, the races this year would not have been the same without him. There is also a good interview in the Times with Kevin Cahill.
I can imagine how the call from Reynolds went with Cahill:
Reynolds: Hey, Kevin, it's Hugh, I'm doing a Story on your new position with the Energy committee.
Cahill: I don't talk to the Freeman. Click
(Cahill ponders, didn't the Freeman fire him?)
A few minutes later:
Reynolds: Hey, Kevin, I'm doing the story with Kingston Times.
Cahill: Oh, how have you been?
Reynolds: Good, you?
Cahill : Good and your kids.......
While, I'm clearly being sarcastic, I think Reynolds will get that reaction a lot.. the Freeman has such a negative reputation and I'm glad he is away from it. I think he'll be happier and in more control in his new position.
