Town Clerk Candidates                                         11-2-2019


                  This is the toughest decision of this election. All the rest are No-Brainers for anyone who cares about Integrity and the future of our town.

                     Most of us are very familiar with both candidates, and know that both are experienced in the workings of the Clerk's office.  The only objection I have to Darla is her past allegiance to the worst, most corrupt Supervisor in our history, and the fact that she left her job as Deputy Supervisor to go to work for HIM. That by no means makes her a bad person, her job choices are her own business.  I DO like the fact that she has promised that if she wins, she will cut costs by doing the job solo, with no Deputy. 

                   Neither of these women have had any incidents of corruption , cheating, or lying to the people, unlike our incumbent Town Clerk. My only concern with Marcie, is that she is so close to Tistrya, that she is happy to go with her door to door, irritating residents half to death, and announcing that she and Tistrya are a "TEAM". They have strongly "Suggested" to some people that if they vote for one, they must vote for the other. This is directly from the mouths of residents. 

                  Marcie has done an admirable job as Deputy Clerk and is certainly capable of being the Town Clerk . She is very well-liked and it's easy to see why, if you have ever had any dealings with her.  

                  So in my opinion, and after a close look at former performance in the job, I think both ladies are a fine choice.

               Today was the "Get Out the Vote" day for the Democrats. (Didn't they haunt enough people LAST weekend?).  I don't think they have ANY clue as to how many residents they have angered with their visits. One woman stated that Tistrya had been told before to NOT come to her house without calling first, but the request was ignored and Tistrya showed up anyway. So the woman told her to leave at once, yet rather than simply leaving, Tistrya then asked for her email address !!!! This is far from the first complaint of this type.  So at least SOME people are seeing for themselves what I mean when I warn about her bullying, pushy nature. If she wins this election, EVERYONE will see it for themselves! 

                 Here's a funny thing; up until now, no one has tampered with campaign signs. It was a breath of fresh air after seeing so much of that in past elections. Today however, as the Democrats scrambled all over New Lebanon, forcing themselves on voters, we had 4 or 5 of Meg Robertson's campaign signs stolen or vandalized.  Two of them had their metal stakes cleanly broken off at ground level. Not bent or twisted, but broken off almost as if a wire-cutter had been used. The signs of all other candidates appeared to be still in place and undamaged.  Coincidence?  Maybe, but I highly doubt it.

                 Behavior like that is proof of immaturity and the desperation of the Left to be in "Control". They are like spoiled children who need to have everything THEIR way, all of the time, and will go to any lengths to see that they "WIN". New Lebanon has no use for those kind of people in our town government, and FINALLY, residents are waking up and fighting back. Is it too little, too late?  We'll have that answer on Tuesday night. The votes will tell the story.

                   Tomorrow night we'll look at the Town Board candidates, and then on Monday, we'll have the final summary of the 3 Supervisor Candidates.
