County Legislator Rich Parete has launched an effort to take back the Marbletown Democratic committee after it was hijacked by the Schreibman's many months ago, by challenging the committee seats of 9 "appointed" members of that committee. I'm glad the rank and file Democrats of Marbletown will be able to decide who represents them on the committee.
The Schreibman's who have been involved in Democratic politics for about 10 minutes, joined the Marbletown committee and almost immediately Shannon Schreibman was elected Chair. Shortly after a lot of members resigned as a result of the way the committee was run under the leadership of the Schreibman's. The vacancies where filled with Schreibman cronies, and Rich Parete, Peter Kraft along with many others that disagreed with the Schreibman's were thrown off the committee.
Julian and Shannon also happened to put themselves in the district of Marbletown that has the highest weighted vote. Could that be because Julian is running for chairman of the County party??
Julian and Shannon Schreibman are trying to strong arm their way into the Democratic party with their Machiavellian style politics to further their own political ambitions. Julian's life long goal is to be District Attorney, he will use and step on anyone to achieve that goal including the entire county committee. We as a party can not let Julian use the Chairmanship as a stepping stone to higher office. Julian has never run a campaign or raised a single dollar...how can he run the County Committee?
The way the Schreibman's have run the Marbletown Democratic committee is only a glimpse of the failed leadership that the Democratic party would suffer under a Schreibman chairmanship.
It will be interesting to see how the Schreibman's do in a primary against Rich Parete and Jenna Knudsen, two well respected people with strong ties to Marbletown. If Schreibman can't win a committee seat in his own town, how can he expect to lead the County Party?
I strongly encourage all residents of Marbletown to support Rich Parete, Jenna Knudsen and their entire ticket. More info as it becomes available.
