I have a feeling that If Quigley was a raging liberal like Robert Wexler you'd be fine with his living situation.

Mr. Blaber -

Not only is this post unfair it is patently untrue. James Quigley DOES live in Ulster County and has always lived here. The fact that he happens to work outside the County is only relevant to the extent that ANYONE in Ulster County who wants a decent job has to go outside our borders to find it.

Perhaps you should go ask the County Administrator and Democrat Majority in the Legislature why that is.

Mr. Quigley has given far more time, energy and effort to local institutions than just about anyone you or I could name - I'm talking about charities, not political institutions. He has raised his children here and made sure that many other children have a quality high school to attend.

To state that he is a resident of NYC is a cheap, tawdry tactic designed to paper over the fact that his opponent does not even come close to being qualified to audit the County's books, which is the chief duty of the Comptroller.

Instead of making up false statements about candidates, perhaps you could explain why on Earth anyone would consider the Ellenville Village Manager more qualified for this job than James Quigley.

You've been asked to do so before and have failed to do so. Could it be that it is impossible to give such an explanation?

By the way, do you apply the same standard to the NYC Liberals who by second homes here, spend one weekend a month admiring the trees and register to vote in Ulster County? Have you asked them to register where they actually lay their heads on a pillow?

Not sure if this is the official slogan of the Auerbach campaign but it should be! I love that saying, I am going around at work saying it to people, I can't get it out of my head.

JIM QUIGLEY= ROBERT WEXLER.

WE NEED AN ULSTER COUNTY COMPTROLLER. NOT A NYC OUTSIDER. AUERBACH SHOULD PUSH THIS ALL DAY LONG.

Me too. I totally was using that saying to people today. I was on metro north today saying it to complete strangers. They must have thought I was crazy.

Jeremy,

Jim Quigley was born and raised in Ulster County, married a local woman and has/is raising three children including educating them here in Ulster. He is and has been an active member of his Church and was instrumental by donating his time and more in saving John A Coleman Catholic High School and Montrepose Cemetary.

The fact is he is experienced in National economic trends due to his work exposure with a company headquartered in NYC is an advantage to taxpayers who have seen their children leave our community.

A picture is worth a thousand words - clean up your tee-shirt please.

I think Ulster County has suffered enough with insiders!

Its not the paintings, its not the taxes, its not the loss of jobs in Ellenville its not about buying or selling building. Its about moving up to fry bigger fish with more access to money at the taxpayers expense

Maybe it should be Good Old Boys - scratch Auerback and I scratch yours.

Auer-Bach? You mean, the tax burden on Auer-Bach? You mean, jobs leaving on Auer-Bach? You mean, social programs on Auer-Bach?

I think 'AuerBach', as in "The Burden of Ulster County is on AuerBach" is a perfect campaign slogan.
