You have to pay the newsstand price to get the complete story but the second of three in-depth profiles of the Congressional candidates is worth the read. This time its Matt Doheny, who apparently has held a desire to run for Congress for a lifetime and when Rep. John McHugh announced his departure in 2009, the Doheny family leapt into action. We are told of his intensity for sports and politics and the conservative policies he argued over at the family dinner table and while attending Allegheny College and Cornell University Law School.
The Sandra Lee of NY23 gets a mention as the paper identifies the Manhattan lawyer who is his girlfriend...or as they say in the Bay...his "old lady."
Doheny comes accross as sharp, ambitious, successful and obsessed with seeking this particular office.
From his fist bumping in the local Jreck Sub Shop to his 16 hour days of campaigning, to his sports theme (footballs), Doheny is 'one of the guys.' But he is also burdened with mental acumen and family drive that prevent him from settling for the success that most people find satisfactory.
