Brian Cahill, the Majority Leader of the county legislature, has introduced legislation that would ban smoking on all county property. Mr. Cahill says that he came up with the idea after receiving complaints from county workers who complained they have to walk through a fog of second hand smoke to get into their work place. Some may remember the city of Kingston passed similar legislation a few months back and so far it has been successful. We agree that smoking should be banned on county property for the health of county workers and the general public. Mr. Cahill is a Patriot for addressing this important quality of life issue.
On the Pinhead front, Jim Quigley the Republican candidate for county comptroller, sent out a joint press release with his running mate that made claims about his opponent that were out right false. As a result not one news organization picked up on the story. Mr. Quigley takes a small hit in his judgment for this blunder and of course for not having his facts straight, he is a Pinhead.
