I have not been posting with any regularity in over two years.  Ever since Dad passed, I just found it difficult to really enjoy politics.  I focused on other matters and ended up writing a book about the Lindbergh Kidnapping.

The book, Hauptmann's Ladder, is still available at book stores, on Amazon, etc.  (Hint hint)  I am also working on a second book, but will keep the topic a secret for now.

Nevertheless, after a two year hiatus, I am returning to Kingston and Ulster County politics.  I was recently appointed City Chair for the Conservative Party and am looking forward to bringing the city committee back to prominence.

I have no intention of running for any position in the future other than those that can be held by attorneys, i.e judge positions, District Attorney, etc.  My involvement in any type of legislative or executive politics will remain in my capacity as City Chair.

As for city politics, I will offer commentary from time to time on this blog.  I have to admit that some of the insanity I have seen from the current Common Counsel has been very tempting to comment upon.  From this point forward, I will do so.

It is good to be back!!!

Kevin for Assembly!!

Before anyone is too shocked, I mean Kevin Roberts.

Truth be told, if I could make things happen in the best way possible, it would be Kevin Roberts vs Susan Zimet in the general election with Kevin Cahill losing in the primary.

Regardless, I will be supporting Mr. Roberts and will place his name into nomination at the County Conservative convention.  For those looking for a headline, how about . . .


Kind of confusing, huh?

A New Chairman in Town

For those who may not have heard, I am now the City Chairman of the Kingston Conservative Chairman.

Along with my 2 Vice Chairs, Bob Boughton and Don Ryan, we hope to reorganize the party and return it to its glory days.

We will not be loyal to any party except the Conservative party.  When Republicans, Democrats, or any candidate not enrolled in the Conservative Party comes before us, they will be judge on their policy positions.  Democrats will not be automatically rejected and Republicans will not be automatically be endorsed.  The candidates chosen will be the most conservative in each race.

The intention is for the Conservative Party to be a CONSERVATIVE party.  Novel concept, huh?
