In response to the article I published on this blog about the lawsuit filed against Nick Woener, there is now an article on the front page of the Daily Freeman. In that article, Nick Woerner claimed that I am trying to "smear him".
It speaks volumes about one's credibility if one can be "smeared" by the truth.
What I published was true. I said it would have an impact on the primary election and that it would be reported by the Freeman. It will and it was.
I will add one thing more. I hope the voters of Ward 4 understand exactly what Nick Woerner is trying to do. Nick was elected Town Supervisor in Ulster after a battle between the conservative and republican parties resulted in a split of support for Woerner's opponent. Nick ran the town very poorly and nearly bankrupted the town. He was defeated severely and overwhelmingly by Jim Quigley.
Now, Nick has decided to move to Kingston in the hope of taking advantage of the strong democrat political machine in this city. He is running in a ward he has never lived in. He chose the ward because of the overwhelming democrat enrollment advantage.
As a born and bred Kingstonian, I resent failed politicos coming to Kingston to try to resurrect a political career at the expense of city residents. Nick Woerner does not give a damn about the residents of Ward 4. They are stepping stones to his goal of being elected Alderman and running for Mayor in 2015.
The City Democrats are the power of politics in the City of Kingston. That has been the case since the 1960's and has been the will of a majority of city residents. That's fine. That's the process. However, that being said, I see no reason for Kingston to be a place where democrat politicos come after they fail in another municipality. Kingston should not be the city of misfit democrats.
