Finley Pals With Conservatives and Meets a Democrat

     GOP Assembly candidate Russ Finley of  Lisbon joined folks of both parties today for a Conservative Party event in Syracuse attended by Rep. Chris Gibson and Syracuse's Democratic Mayor Stephanie Miner.
Russ Finley and Mayor Miner
 
       Big Russ showed his maverick spirit by posing with the Mayor, something most partisans would disapprove of. However Mayor Miner has been at odds with Governor Cuomo and her address to the group was on municipal consolidation and tax breaks to developers.
        Mr. Finley is seeking the GOP nod to run against Assemblywoman Addie Russell.
        There will likely be a Republican primary with John Byrne also running, and possibly others. However, Mr. Finley is well connected with the Conservative Party and if he gets the W/P it will be hard for the GOP to turn him away.
        As for her honor, she is term limited and it will be interesting to see where she lands next. Previous Salt City mayors have been well taken care of including Matt Driscoll who has a cushy state job.

Finley is the reason Addie the Maid is still in office.

Mayor Miner is incompetent beyond belief. She's paying people $30,000 per year to do things like water flowers and pick up cigarette butts.
And a few years ago she held the state hostage and made them close rt 81 for weeks because she's too incompetent to make sure code enforcement deals with run down buildings before they collapse.
And just recently she closed Salina Street for almost a month due to another building collapse.
And now she's spending 3 million dollars on a "park" next to other parks such as Clinton Square, Hanover Square etc. Yet every week there's a water main break that closes another street.

Byrne is the reason. That was an easy win.

Finley is the reason we did not replace Addie with an exact copy of her save for a newly minted "R" next to his name.

Finley is a patriot.

Chris Gibson, the former most liberal republican in the House. Not many conservatives in the NY Conservative party.

1159.. You must be a dumb Republican.. The reason she won is more smart people voted for her then who ever you voted for.. The reason she wins and will win again is too many people in the Republican party spend too much time on defeating her and downing her on this blog to absolutely no avail whats so ever..

4:14, the reason she wins is the giant sucking sound she offers to the education industry and bums everywhere. That, and the fact that her district was pretty much carved out for her. But that's what you expect from a person who worked so many parties in Sheldon's office. When you sell out your own people, NYC thugs provide special privileges.

This is why you need to jump in Jeff, what on earth would have possessed Finely to have his photo taken with a liberal Dem. Or nuttier still who would have been in a room with a speaker like Miner giving a pep rally to Conservatives.

What the Ch### is wrong with you Finely, she is a diehard Dem. You can never ever trust a Dem.
