She is probably not worried that the former NYC mayor is calling her his enemy and is planning on advertising against her....But for Assemblywoman Addie Russell it is an issue for her opponent to use if he wants.....Mayor Koch is trying to lead a laudable effort to reform the way Albany operates and Ms. Russell is one of a handful of lawmakers who refused to sign the Koch pledge.
I can understand not wanting to sign stuff....when Democrats ask me to sign a pledge of loyalty to Andrew Cuomo's agenda, I refused...not because I find a lot of fault with what it said...but just a matter of principle.
Like all in office, I took an oath of office and to me thats the pledge, along with an allegiance to the community that elected me.
I like Mayor Koch and his efforts and hope Ms. Russell would have the wisdom to support Hizzoner's goals even without signing anything.
