When its time to vote look carefully at the people who are running in your district. Do this after you hear them speak and you really understand what they are saying. When you hear them say something you know can’t be done, by ask yourself who he will be working with to support his plans to get the job done? So many people in Amherst say the same thing.
Why are the names of the candidates in the Village and Town so familiar? Simple. Many of these candidates are the seeds (offspring) of previous politicians.. They are often related to someone who previously sat on some elected board in our local government.
This list of “seeds” is substantial. They are trained by their relatives on what to say and how to lie while smiling.
One of the most deceitful, dishonest politicians in the area is Mark Poloncarz who gave jobs to his brother and several other relatives. Poloncarz is the one who told reporters he was getting on a plane and was going to Syracuse to a fundraiser in his honor at the Orange Club.
First lie: there wasn’t any fundraiser set up for him, second lie: the Orange Club never had any knowledge of a fundraiser. What Poloncarz did was to meet with two friends who gave him $45,000 for his campaign. A funny thing happened with this deal. One of the two men now works for “The Mark.”
The people of Amherst must check up on every candidate running to representative us. Sometimes a good seed does fall from the family linage. All candidates, especially “seeds” must be checked out completely.
