Well, you know, sn election like that
means that every single Dem politician across the nation is having a "bad day," or at least that seems to be the logic around here.
... and Hillary and Kerry campaigned for Freddie Ferrer in NYC. Hmmmmm.... LOL!
Bloomberg may be a RINO in a lot of ways, but he's no Dem when it comes to the issues that got him elected!
Does anyone have a breakdown
of which party won what overall? I haven't seen one. I would think if anyone made dramatic advances we would never hear the end of it. Even if it's a wash that would be bad news for the Democrats.
Or do people really not vote nationally in local elections?
Dems run away with it in both Suffolk and Nassau
Counties. But they are across the sound from Conn. so they dont count for Evie!
Both of these counties have been GOP strongholds for decades. And are great examples of the corruption which one party rule brings with it over time!
I don't know anyone living there
My parents happen to be "neighbors" to Bill and Hill.
Apparently NJ hasn't woken up yet.
I have a friend in Nassau County who says that the area has been trending Dem for a few years now so this is no surprise. He also says taxes have skyrocketed since the Dems took over the County Supervisor seat.
Bad times for professional people.
Did your friend also tell you that
the 30 year Republi-con reign almost bankrupt these counties and the hi taxes are a direct result of their fiscal malfeasance?
Or that in one Township in Suffolk county about 15 former GOP officials have gone to jail for a variety of things from bribery to hands in the till giving the area of Brookhaven the nickname "Crookhaven". But I guess those are the little details which slip your memory!
But I bet you and your friend remember all the Dems who pulled the same kind of crap when they were in long term power in areas like Long Beach (Nassau County)!
It isnt the party which is at fault,unfortunately. It is that long term one party rule results in corruption. And it keeps happening all over the world!
I never lived there and am only reporting...
what I've been told. My point is that the Dem victory was not a stunning upset, rather a continuation of the ongoing trend in the area.
