John Parete was unanimously endorsed for reelection by the City committee to serve another term as Chairman of the Ulster County Democratic Committee over challenger Julian Schreibman.
Kingston is the largest committee in Ulster County.
For me, I looked at the two candidates and it was very clear that John Parete was the best and most experienced to continue to lead the party. Julian was too negative, divisive and lacked a clear understanding of how to lead the party in any direction but downhill. His suggestion that we would of lost the DA's race last year even in a two way race was particularly insulting to me and showed a complete lack of judgment and understating of the process on his part. Julian also failed to offer any solutions to the problems that he claimed existed.
We do not need divisiveness, we need leadership and unity. No question, I have had my disagreements with John Parete but he is a leader. The most important thing this year is electing Mike Hein, Elliott Auerbach and our entire ticket, I am confident that under Parete's leadership we will do that.
Blaber News will make a formal endorsement for Chairman Parete in the coming weeks.
