Invited, and then, UNinvited. Subtitle: political gamesmanship in Suffolk County, and why we need to change the way we vote, and the way we think about political parties.
The first question is, did all of those yacht clubs vote to censor candidates, or was it just the council that decided to censor candidates for political office?
The NEXT question is, did something or someONE influence them to make this decision? And why? Are they THAT afraid of what independent candidates might say, that they had to make sure that they did not get a forum to express their views and ideas? Is this a good thing for Suffolk County? Is this how the council treats boat owners, as well? Do they pick and choose who they let in to their council, or to a yacht club? All interesting questions.
I would recommend that you take a little time tonight, October 12th, and stop down at the Northport Yacht Club at 7pm, to ask the members some of these questions. You can meet me there as well, because invitation or no, I WILL be there, whether on the stage or not, to discuss with voters Suffolk County, and the ridiculous mis-management, overspending, and corruption that seems rampant throughout the county government, as well as the related boating issues.
See you there!
