I think this Times scribe raises a good point about the widely anticipated Senate run by America's Favorite County Clerk, Patty Ritchie. Will this genuinely nice and competent person find happiness in the sphere that houses the Eric Massa's and Hiram Montserrate's of the world ?
Ms. Ritchie has been doing the obligatory publicity stunts and press releases in a probable effort to launch a campaign against Senator Darrel Aubertine....For the record, Mr. Aubertine is a nice person too.
Press releases and grandstanding on issues in the news don't work with me....I look at the prison and say, 'Hey, you gotta start cutting somewhere....' although I realize the role of the local pols is to feign outrage as long as possible.
I would suggest if she is running, she run based not on press releases from Senator Libous' office...but just talk about herself.
She has a really good record that has led to all that adulation she gets just walking into the P&C (soon a Price Chopper) on a Saturday morning. Talk about Patty and lay off the press releases and stunts. If simple souls like Mr. Savitskie and I can see through them, so will lots of other people.
Let Patty be Patty and keep the Libous operatives in Albany where they feel more at home.
