Even though the Amherst Democrats endorse two ladies for the two open seats on the Amherst Town Board, don’t expect them to win.
The Democratic candidate who wasn’t endorsed by Chairman Jerry Schad was Hadar Borden but Mr. Wonderful, Mark Poloncarz, is going to support her to win.
Schad – counting committee votes for next year for himself – 3 Bucki’s + Spoth versus Borden, who is not even on the committee, it was an easy choice as to who he would endorse – secretly. To please Poloncarz he will be helping Borden. I think the Bucki’s and Spoth’s should know this for us a chance to exploit this rare opportunity.
If you go to the Temple Beth Zion Facebook page, they list their members – at the top is Rich Tobe. Hadar Borden is further down the list there were two deals done by the Dems and Conservatives at the Town Level and County level involving Schad, Kindel, Zellner, Lorigo.
The local Town committee hadn’t interviewed or recommended a County Leg candidate in quite awhile, however you’ll notice that they did just that last week. Schad & Kindel agree that Schad will endorse Kaminski for Hwy, if Kindel agrees to do all Dems for the TB, and so it was done.
Lorigo agreed to not give any Wilson Pecula’s to any Republicans from Amherst and will say it’s a town decision, however he would allow Kindel to vote to recommend Loughran. It should also be noted that Lorigo told Marlette to not attend any Town meeting where they were voting to recommend or endorse at the Town Level. It should also be noted that Marlette was never invited to the local committee meeting.
Zellner and Lorigo met to cut a deal. The deal was Zellner would not put a candidate against Ralph’s son Joe Lorigo if Ralph gave Loughran the Conservative endorsement. This was agreed to and Ralph began calling the County Conservative Executive Committee asking them to vote for Loughran. He did with some resistance, but became insistent that Loughran is a true conservative, even though he has always been a Working Family candidate. Loughran has done nothing in the legislature, except vote on stuff other legislators have brought forward.
So basically Kindel, Schad, Loughran & Lorigo have all conspired together to sell out the residents of the town and the county.
