There is an article in the Kingston Times that has a comment from Republican Chairman Tony Sinagra that has me both laughing and scratching my head. Here is the clip:
"Kingston Republican Committee Chairman Tony Sinagra, stinging from the defeat of a candidate whom he has actively endorsed, accused Cahill, Polacco, and fourth-place contender Jean Jacobs of working together to undermine Turco-Levin's prospects and the party's best chance in two decades to retake the mayor's office."
According to Sinagra, it was a conspiracy against Andi Turco-Levin that cost her the election. Ron Polacco, Jean Jacobs, and myself apparently hatched a brilliant scheme to go out and get hundreds if signatures each, attend debates and various political events, and walk door to door throughout the city not in an attempt to win the Primary, but instead just to "undermine Turco-Levin's prospects".
Is he delirious?
All three of us wanted to win, and all three of us felt betrayed and mistreated by Tony Sinagra. That is where the similarities end. We ran separate campaigns and tried to win. In the end, Ron won the Republican line fair and square. I won the Conservative line fair and square. Tony's candidate lost both primaries.
At least Andi Turc0-Levin showed some class after her defeat. She offered no excuses and took her defeat like an adult. Perhaps Sinagra should learn to do the same.
