MoJOE Roberti has a huge post on his blog crushing over his favorite guy agian!! The former county legislator says on his blog that even if a strong Republican emerges that spends 300k on the county exec race, Hein would still win by 10 points.
In short, I agree.
Roberti claims the reason why Hein is unbeatable is that he controls the local media. You know, the typical Republican talking point about any Democrat.
It has nothing to do with the fact Mike Hein delivered a budget that didn't raise taxes, has made government more accountable to the people, the numerous victories and initiatives his office has brought forward that have improved the quality of life to county residents; including his most recent victory against the DEP.
Republicans are so desperate that Paul Hansit, the Majority Leader of the county legislature, is trying to convince Robin Yess to back Ultra Liberal Sue Zimet to run against Hein and Sue is all too eager for the opportunity.
I wish Ulster Republicans would just admit that Mike Hein is a good County Executive and has done a great job showing us that under the right leadership, government can work for the people.
