Julian Schreibman the chair of the Ulster County Democratic Committee is at it again, this time he is preparing to get candidates to primary incumbent Democratic legislators this fall. Are you kidding me??? The Democrats still have not secured a candidate for clerk or for all the 33 seats in the county leg and Julian wants to focus his time and energy in to taking out good fellow Democrats... where is the leadership and united party that Julian promised when he was elected just a few months ago?
The fact of the matter is that Julian is playing the same games that he accused his predecessor of playing...going after his political enemies out of spite. The difference is John Parete knew how to win elections and didn't spend 90% of his time living in NYC.
According to Stuart Fraiser Julian is looking to primary Rich Parete, besides the fact that Julian should have courted Rich for clerk, it is crazy to think that Rich will be beaten in a primary, he leads the ticket every single year. Also, when you primary and at large seat, you primary the entire district so Rob Parete and Roy Hochberg will also face a primary as a result of Julian's challenge. Which means in all reality it will be newcomer, Roy Hochberg that would lose in a primary.
I also will tell you that I will work every weekend and spare second I have to go to Ulster County and work for Rich...Rich is a friend and a great legislator. One thing Julian can't do is out work me, we beat him for the DA nod, and we beat his chosen candidate for Comptroller back at the convention. I know he won the chairmanship but that was because we ad only a week to promote a candidate that was widely unknown.
In the end Julian needs to stop the infighting and certainly stop causing the fighting and get a candidate to run for Clerk and make sure all the seats in the legislature will be competitive, places like Saugerties and Marlboro, where there are blanks every year. Also while you're at Julian, how bout raising some money so we don't have to move our headquarters yet again!
