Too bad his judgement as a councilman the past 12 years wasn't reason enough!

Why did they endorse him in the first place?

He is not exactly a bright political bulb

Typical Greece Republicans, they think they own the place, and can co-opt any town resource for their own benefit. This needs to end!

Another case of the Riley family revenge.

Ed Riley set up Antelli. They've cozied up to Maloney to help perpetuate the crime.

They use "Turnblossom" Garretson as their lackey.

What goes around will come around, watch and see.

To 10:31PM ~~ What is meant by "turnblossom?"

How is Maloney involved? Oh, that's right, he's NOT!

yyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyes, and the Easter Bunny is real, and Santa is NOT an alcoholic!

To 12:05AM ~~ You also forgot to mention that Auberger is blameless for anything bad that ever happened in Greece during the last 12 years ... including Antelli's style of politics. How did the D&C characterize Greece govt under Auberger? Oh yes, "clubby, closed and corrupt." ;)

Antelli was setting up to Primary Jack before the crap hit the fan over Nick Joseph.
Rahn was always stopping by the beauty shop to bring Antelli tidbits.
First Antelli's wife got a County job in the Clerk's DMV office, and then Antelli (who was term limiting) got the County Leg to minimize his damage potential.

And didn't the D&C say Maloney was incapable of running the town? They said he shouldn't try for anything higher than town board.

SCATS said...

To 7:26AM ~~ The D&C's mistake in not endorsing Maloney is that Maloney CAN learn the job. Afterall, he could let "I am him" run things just like she's been doing for a couple more months ;)

Auberger isn't likely to unlearn the "closed, clubby & corrupt" behaviors, not even if Dr. Phil intervenes. Jack needs to retire before he pops a vein. His temper is getting the better of him.

Residents can't afford to have someone who needs to "learn" a job as big as this. Are you saying we need to endure several years of ineptitude before he figures it out? Not willing to take that chance.

The D&C can't claim direct knowledge of the "clubbiness" they claim exists unless they've sat at town hall long enough to legitimately make the statement.

They can however after long personal interviews determine who is capable of running the operation.

That was Maloney's opportunity to prove to them he could handle the job.

Obviously he proved he can't.

To 10:59AM ~~ Residents can't afford to have someone who is corrupt and inaccessible run a town as big as this. Are you saying we need to endure 4 more years of corruption before we've had our fill of scandals? I'm not willing to take that chance. Neither are lots of other people I know, many of whom are Republicans!

The D&C can claim direct knowledge of the "clubbiness" we all know exists by watching a few town board meetings and reading the editorial MPNNews wrote last summer lambasting Auberger for his closed, inaccessible methods of running the Town of Greece. "I am him" was not elected to run this town. Auberger was!


They can however after long personal interviews determine who is capable of running the operation.

That was Auberger's opportunity to prove to them he could handle the job in the future.

Obviously he proved he can't.

Experience is a factor that cuts both ways. It can indicate wisdom, or it can breed, as it has in Greece, a pattern of complacency and corruption. Leaders can get set in their ways and become blind to the consequences of their own actions

Wisdom isn't always found in the most experienced. There are people in their twenties who are wiser than many older people.

This is a situation where Jack's experience is a negative factor. If he has actually learned anything from his experience, it is how to hold control more tightly for the benefit of a smaller group of people, and how to be more slippery and manipulative. He is too set in his ways --not becoming in a guy in his mid-fifties.

In such a situation we need a clean sweep and a fresh start.

SCATS said...

To 12:20PM ~~ Is Auberger really that young, mid-50s? He is looking MUCH older lately.

To 10:59:

I would like to know what Auberger's experience was when he first took the job as Supervisor. Everyone, unless they have been a supervisor somewhere else, comes to the job with NO experience. Auberger was fresh out of Kodak, can you tell me how that made him a good supervisor of a town the size of Greece?

What a ridiculous statement - every Supervisor comes to the job with no experience and learns as they go along. Unfortunately, Auberger never learned.
