Vote Republican. Vote for a track record of scandal (Rob-U-trad, GPD, Greece assessor). Vote for corruption. Vote for campaigns paid for using contributions from public employees. Keep cronyism alive. Vote Republican.

Vote Democrat. Vote for a track record of waste.

The Walts administration was full of Democrats. Remember how much money it took to bury the truth.

(Former Mayor) Bill Johnson is a democrat. Remember the Fast Ferry debacle?

Keep wasting money. Vote Democrat.

SCATS said...

To 6:12AM ~~ How quickly YOU'VE forgotten! REN SQUARE -- pushed by Maggie Brooks, Republican. KILLED BY DUFFY, A DEMOCRAT! RenSquare was about to become the Republican version of the Fast Ferry AND we already wasted MILLIONS of $$ on "designs" for a glorified BUS GARAGE, that no one (except a few Reps) wanted OR needed.

Graehaven said...

Not only that, but our state budget went up the most under a REPUBLICAN Governor. The state budget doubled on his watch. He was supposed to be a fiscal conservative. But he, and the Republican controlled senate went right along with the NYC Democrat controlled Assembly, and continue the expansion of wasteful spending.

Anonymous said...

So what to do. Vote for REAL conservatives. People with a proven record of cutting taxes and spending. I'm sorry but you just can't trust Democrats to cut taxes or at least keep them under control. Democrats have proven record of raising taxes. I wasn't a big Ren Square fan, but it would have done more for this area than the fast ferry debacle.

Besides, Louise Slaughter wanted it killed so she could redirect the money toward her fast train. We're still gonna pay for a new government project, it's just gonna be one that doesnt benefit our area and people.

SCATS said...

To 8:18AM ~~ I'm taken aback by the stereotyping you (and others)use in attributing certain things to one party or the other! Drop the labels and look at what THE PERSON promotes.

It's always something in Rochester ... Frontier Field, Paetec Park, Fast Ferry, Ren Square ... not it's Midtown with condos that cost $400,000! Who the heck is going to live there?

Anonymous said...

So what should we build at Midtown? It seems you just hate Rochester so much SCATS. What is your solution? Leave things the way they are and watch them rot? You sre still living in the past. We need to move forward and compete with other cities.

CoffeeReady said...

Is the Republican party ignoring the INCREASED spending ( county and Greece)? I mean something is paying for it? And yeah Patterson and his raising of taxes/fees such as requiring new lic.plates is absurd. I am fed up with all of them! CoffeeReady

Probably people from out of state who don't know any better ;). New hires that take the jobs from locals. Compared to other parts of the country, this area is "reasonably" priced.

SCATS said...

To 10:51AM ~~ I don't hate Rochester. I'm just tired of the close-minded people who believe the status quo and what they promote is serving us well. I'm all for a downtown casino complex with hotels, clubs, restaurants ... do you know how much money people from Rochester spend to visit casinos in other western NY locations? Why not let them spend that money here at home?

To 12PM ~~ Actually, I doubt that, given what was reported this morning about the exodus of people out of NY state (an 8% population loss since 2000) and the resultant 13% drop in NY incomes. My God, things are so bad that people are fleeing NY and going to NJ!

To 12:56PM ~~ Your comment can be taken several different ways. Care to expand on it?

I don't understand what you mean by that "taken several different ways."

SCATS said...

To 2:51PM ~~ It means I can interpret 12:56PM's remarks in several different ways. Bottom line: I don't understand what 12:56PM's point really was.

Anonymous said...

So why can't people band together to get a casino downtown and force the issue?...lots of new jobs created and much revenue to be had. Which politicians would be "for it or against it"? Is this something that's only decided by the city or does the whole county have a say in it?

Then for sure we'd need that new bus terminal as the trips would be coming into town instead of going out ;).

SCATS said...

To 3:43PM ~~ Well, the politicians were against it back when we had our previous mayor. As I recall, even Robach was opposed. There were murmers about a casino bringing crime into the city!! Can you believe?? They feared the Lyell Ave hookers would relocate, I guess.

Build the casino (first) AND then a fast transit/train system. I think it might be a "winning" combo ... if we can keep folks from taking that train on a one-way trip out-of-state.

SCATS said...

BLOG Administration deleted the comment posted by 12:56PM. I requested an elaboration, explained what that meant and then got a wiseguy response putting the question back onto me. Third time, you're OUT!

The latest poll results for Greece Supervisor show a race too tight for Uncle Auggie's comfort. He's ahead, narrowly.

Anonymous said...

What polls? Who was polled? What were the questions asked? Etc..

Anonymous said...

I say ... Vote every incumbent out regardless of "party". Too many folks on all sides feel that political office is a lifetime job rather than public service.
Let them run again in a couple of years if they wish.

Anonymous said...

It's not a lifetime job in Greece. Greece has term limits for elected officials. You need to know what you're talking about first.

@10:18 - 4:18 doesn't need to show proof here. Remember how it works. Accusations benefitting the Democrats are ok. But that's only for them. On this site, the proof required must come from the Republicans that the accusation is NOT true.

I know it's frustrating because that's not how it works everywhere else in this country. Normally, if you are going to accuse someone of something or present something as fact, you are expected to be able to have even the tinyist shred of proof.

Not here though. And again, this only applies when it benefits Democrat candidates. Imagine how town hall will run if Democrats take control.

I only know of 1 poll (if that's what you want to call it) where my son received a phone call and was asked 3 questions..but none had to do with the candidates for supervisor.

One question was "Give me a positive or negative or indifferent response when you hear the name Maggie Brooks"

Second question named someone my son was not familiar with (and therefor can't remember who it was)--but it was not any familiar candidate in Greece he said

Third question was "What do you feel is the biggest issue for YOU concerning Greece?"

(Other than that: I haven't heard of any so-called polls.)

I should've added my son also has unlisted phone number; however, he & wife are registered, active voters in Dem party.

SCATS said...

To 9:50AM ~~ I believe that there are other types of polls done to test the waters for certain candidates. Just because you or your son didn't get called doesn't mean none were conducted. Polls only take a sampling. I don't know what parameters were used, possibly they were checking to see how much ground Auberger might have lost in his OWN party. I've heard reference to a group called "Republicans for Maloney" operating in Greece this year.

SCATS said...

To 7:51AM ~~ The only term limits in Greece are for TOWN WARD offices. The Supervisor HAS NO LIMITS. From the Town of Greece's new website:

"The Supervisor of the Town is the presiding member of the Town Board, is elected for a term of four years and is eligible to succeed himself. In addition to the Supervisor, there are four members of the Town Board who are elected for two year terms with term limits of 5 consecutive 2 year terms. The Supervisor is elected at large and each council member is elected from one of four districts."

.....Except, Auberger stood infront of the crowd at FBBC and claimed this was his last campaign for supervisor due to term limits!?!

"To 7:51AM ~~ The only term limits in Greece are for TOWN WARD offices. The Supervisor HAS NO LIMITS."

SCATS, you are wrong and are once again giving out false information on your blog, which is not surprising.

Town board members cannot serve more than 5 consecutive 2-year terms and the Supervisor cannot serve more than 3 consecutive 4-year terms.

The law was passed by the republican town board around 2000.

Like your endorsed supervisor candidate Dan Maloney, you don't understand town government.

We'll all patiently wait for you to delete your false statement. LOL.

SCATS said...

To 11:03AM ~~ Until the Town of Greece amends THEIR NEW WEBSITE TO SHOW ME THERE ARE TERM LIMITS FOR SUPERVISOR, I will keep repeating that there are NO TERM LIMITS.

I took the quote straight from Auberger's own pet project (it has HIS NAME and HIS PIC all over it)and it fails to mention any such limit. So, if there is a "lie" go get John to explain to you why he does that ;)

SCATS said...

SCATS has rejected two comments for calling names. Calling me names will get you nowhere, especially when you contend that I'm lying about term limits that I just QUOTED STRAIGHT FROM AUBERGER'S OWN WEBSITE. If that info isn't factual, then your beef should be with Town Hall, not with SCATS.

THAT'S THE END OF DISCUSSION ON THAT SUBJECT (Supervisor's term limits) ... until or unless someone comes forth with documented evidence showing otherwise. Feel free to discuss any other topics related to this thread.

SCATS:

Did you notice that the D and C pulled its endorsement of Rick Antelli in the AM paper.

SCATS said...

To 11:54AM ~~ I haven't had a chance to look at the news yet today. But I will ;)

Anonymous said...

Yes, scats, I agree there must be many random polls. I only mentioned that one particular one and have been curious as to which side it originated from. Could even be something to gather info for campaign purposes (in regards to the question about what matters most about Greece). Are polls a true indication about anything?

The only polls I've answered are on your blog ;).

Cincie here. Susan thinks the whole thing is ridickulous. It's obvious to the normal eye that it appears from an artistic standpoint that the term restriction does not exist.

But Susan also thinks that it would appear that they do.

So SCATS is both right and wrong. And Susan never lies.
