The Winds of Change

   Does it matter what box you check on a voter registration form ? Two of the candidates for Assembly have changed to Republican, presumably to help their chances of replacing Addie Russell.
   We know Russ Finley changed from Conservative to Republican this year to obviate the need for a Wilson Pakula in the GOP primary.
     Mr. Finley today posted what he says is opponent John Byrne's voter registration card from 2007 when he moved to the area from Otsego County. It shows Mr. Byrne registered as a Democrat. In 2007 Cape Vincent, that wasn't a bad strategy, but life and times change.

      Of course you could argue Ronald Reagan changed too.  I hear the other side is circulating a photo I took of Mr. Finley and Ms. Russell at a debate held at the Wright Center in 2014 along with the suggestion the two are working together.  I think it was just one of those after debate photos and the Republican declined to be in the photo.

We already knew Byrn was 90% democrat. Just listen to where he and Addie differ and its not by much. Of the ten "womyn issues" that Addie supports, Byrne supports nine of them.( ll of them give special privileges to women at the expense of innocent business owners, as well as assumes guilt of business owners and requires them to prove they are innocent instead of the other way around),

Once a dem always a dem.

trump is the best example. A flip-flopper from way back. It's sad that so many are intentionally overlooking this fault. He is a blatant fake.

I hope the Repub boss in Theresa NY takes heed of who provided the Village with a new Police Car......And it wasn't Byrne......

Dems never change when it comes to voting. You have to give credit to them on that. Once those faux Americans have their head lodged somewhere, they refuse to pull it out, per se.

YOu better check old Russy's history Mayor as well. He ran as a democrat for county legislator back in 2006. Is there really no shame? or did little russ forget the issue?

Doesn't matter which party Byrne claims to belong to, he doesn't have any leadership qualities. Once he gets past the campaigning stage he needs someone to tell him how to act.

There is no doubt that the establishment is making a mistakes again in the River District.

Isn't America great? A place where anyone, even if you're totally unqualified for the job, can run for and hold political office. It's a triumph of personal gumption, and voter stupidity and gullibility.
