'Tell Me Lies, Tell Me Sweet Little Lies ... '


On the topic of the appointment by Cuomo of the next Monroe County Clerk ... 


The Democrats anticipate anybody who would be appointed would also plan on running for a full-term in the fall. Reilich believes they're looking even farther ahead.
"I know the other side is scouting future county executives," he said. "We're not doing that. We want somebody who is dedicated to the clerk's job."
The last two clerks, Dinolfo and fellow Republican Maggie Brooks, have gone on to become County Executive.
"We're not interested in somebody that's looking at this for four years from now to run for county exec," Reilich said. "We want somebody that says I'm going to do a good job as a clerk and is committed to the task at hand."

Reilich said, "(Cuomo's) very partisan" . Should we assume that Reilih is NOT !!!!

What a bunch of BS. Relic knows Coumo will ask for a name from the Monroe Democratic committee , lol. Dave Gantt will name the next County Clerk. If they are looking down the road , then I would bet on Lovely. Neither she or any Democrat can win outside the city limits in a county wide race.

County Clerk appointment is done deal. Bello (Super W Irond) with Medley Center in hand has shown how it’s done – did what Republicans couldn’t get done. Add a few years as County Clerk to keep County Republicans in check and build name recognition... he’s ready for County Leg, County Exec, or bigger.

If there is a germ of sanity in the Dem Party at County or State level it will not be Lovely. She who is married to the getaway driver is Gant's groomed baby and even Gant knows she cannot stand on her own. She is safe in the Mayor job and may well replace Gant in State Leg if he ever stops breathing. Gant will continue to rule by punishing Rochester for failing to meet his expectations.

If Little Caesar appoints a Dem to the Clerk position I'd figure on a publicly unknown name. The appointment only lasts till the next election, and you can bet on Reilich putting the best possible candidate up with plenty of campaign money to bring the office back into the R camp. Risking a groomed Dem such as Duffy is a dangerous move in a County office where the County is majority Republican.

Caesar Jr could really screw the deal up for Reilich by appointing a Republican of little stature, no ability and high profile in the County R team. Someone like an elected Tax Collector with a huge ego and ZERO ability would undoubtedly screw up to the max in the remainder of the term and give Democrats a public example of R incompetence. It would also have to be someone who detests Reilich covertly, and will accept the appointment from the Governor.

Does that man exist? Bet your ass he does, as do 10 other Republicans Reilich roadblocked as County Chairman. This could be fun to watch. Somebody will get wasted before the dust on this one settles.

What is the salary… and benefits (total comp is important) for County Clerk?

You say, “Risking a groomed Dem such as Duffy is a dangerous move in a County office where the County is majority Republican. How did Duffy get into this?

Times they are a chang’in for R’s – Donald Trump is real. People are fed up! More VOTE (Voice Of Trump Excitement) will help Monroe County.

Bello can handle himself in front of tv camera... knows how to say what voters want to hear. And County Clerk makes money every year for County budget. This will not go unnoticed/unmentioned. When Bello tells it, it will sound GOOOOD and NEWWWWW!

Bill says, “I know the other side is scouting future county executives,...” The OTHER SIDE ever so subtle. Always about THE PARTY... about WINNING... always about WE (ME)!

To 8:48AM ~~ By referring to "the other side" you can see clearly who is creating the division in the community.

Fun to watch, you betcha. But experienced political power brokers don’t waste opportunities by gambling on failure by the other side.

Little Caesar can make Bello/Monroe County Clerk Office look like a gold mine.

Neither team has much of a bench at the County level.

Funke plugged in fast and high – worked well – Reilich lucked out. Otherwise retirement pipeline from tv news slow for Repubs. What was DiNolfo path to Cnty Clerk?

SCATS said...

Should approval of debt/bonds in Town of Greece to construct police HQ have been subject to ‘permissive referendum’ by residents?

Anonymous said...

DiNolfo is a Lawyer and the daughter of a Lawyer, Rus Lauria. She was the first Lawyer to become Clerk. Prior to her election there had been a long standing agreement among the Lawyers of Monroe County that No Lawyer would ever be allowed to become County Clerk.

The Clerk job had been near a lifetime job until a woman who ran a copy store got elected. She went on to a State appointment. Maggie got ousted from TV, went to County Leg and then Clerk and on to County Exec. Along came Sherry following the Maggie path.

To 2:33PM ~~ Not a bad idea at all.

Nice idea 2:33, but making it happen is damn near impossible unless the Board wants it to happen.

§ 90. Acts or resolutions of the town board that are subject to a
referendum on petition. Whenever this chapter shall expressly provide
that an act or resolution of the town board is subject to a permissive
referendum, such act or resolution shall be subject to a referendum on
petition as set forth in the next section, unless a proposition therefor
shall have been adopted at a town election. Within ten days after the
adoption by the town board of any resolution which is subject to a
permissive referendum as above defined, the town clerk, in the same
manner as provided for notice of a special election, shall post and
publish a notice which shall set forth the date of the adoption of the
resolution and contain an abstract of such act or resolution concisely
stating the purpose and effect thereof. The notice shall specify that
such resolution was adopted subject to a permissive referendum.


§ 91. Referendum on petition. Any such resolution or act of the town
board as set forth in the preceding section shall not take effect until
thirty days after its adoption; nor until approved by the affirmative
vote of a majority of the qualified electors of such town or district
affected, voting on such proposition, if within thirty days after its
adoption there be filed with the town clerk a petition signed, and
acknowledged or proved, or authenticated by electors of the town
qualified to vote upon a proposition to raise and expend money, in
number equal to at least five per centum of the total vote cast for
governor in said town at the last general election held for the election
of state officers, but which shall not be less than one hundred in a
town of the first class nor less than twenty-five in a town of the
second class, protesting against such act or resolution and requesting
that it be submitted to the qualified electors of the town or district
affected, for their approval or disapproval. If such petition be so
filed not more than seventy-five days nor less than sixty days prior to
a biennial town election, a proposition for the approval of such act or
resolution shall be submitted at such biennial town election. If a
petition be so filed at any other time, a proposition for the approval
of such act or resolution shall be submitted at a special town election
to be held not less than sixty nor more than seventy-five days after the
filing of such petition. The petition may be made upon separate sheets
and the signatures to each sheet shall be authenticated in the manner
provided by the election law for the authentication of nominating
petitions. The several sheets so signed and authenticated when fastened
together and offered for filing shall be deemed to constitute one
petition. If, within five days after the filing of such petition, a
written objection thereto be filed with the town clerk, and a verified
petition setting forth the objections be presented by the person so
filing such objections to the supreme court or any justice thereof of
the judicial district in which such town is located, such court or
justice within twenty days shall determine any question arising
thereunder and make such order as justice may require. Such proceeding
shall be heard and determined in the manner prescribed by section 16-116
of the election law.

The clerk of courts? Isn't that a position that is voted on by the people of Monroe County?

The fact is that construction of the new PD was approved under the Roger Boily administration as a package that included the existing new town hall, Justice center and Police department. As I recall the only public opposition to the project was the demolish ion of the existing town hall, Justice court and PD at 2505 W Ridge Rd at LongPond Rd. That opposition was led by the Greece Historical Society that was intent on saving the historical front facade as a the historical site it was considering that the town had previously declared the Gordon Howe house on Latta Rd as such and moved it to its present location on LongPond adjacent to the town hall.
A public protest was organized to take place the morning of the scheduled demolishment in hopes of stopping it. . They would be disappointed because when they showed up, it was already gone. A victim of The Boily MIDNIGHT WRECKING BALL. The town claimed they needed to sell the property I order to build the new complex.
Let's face it folks, we empower these people through the election process and with few exceptions they can do as they damn well please.
