Bringing Parties Together

Welcome to the Celtic Feast of Brigid.  Danu and Dagada are so proud. The best thing you can do, since you don’t have a Spring is adorn your tub.  Once adorned, you really should make love next to it but I know how difficult that can be for some of you.

Monday May 20th:  Anybody look at the polling places for the Utica School District Race??  You should. Looks like somebody is intentionally getting screwed.

Tuesday May 21st:  The District Attorney needs an update on the voter fraud story.  If Mr. Truett ran a tighter ship, this wouldn’t be necessary.

Wednesday May 22nd:  The Enforcement folks at the State Board of Elections also need an update.  They sounded so happy on the phone.

Thursday May 23rd:  Remember when I FOIL’d the Liberty Street addresses??  I think the Camden folks should know how close they came to becoming famous.

Friday May 24th:  The Oneida County Clerk and the Utica Tax Assessor need to make a decision before a court does.  Time to bring them to the table.


Over on Patreon, there will be the Plan for the Week Memo.  You might even see 2, count ‘em 2, videos. By the way, it’s not that I’m good at the videos, I just like doing them.

Please be aware, as we discovered many times, that this is only a schedule and real events can happen.  However, I’m trying to get back to the old days where more Blogs appeared and not less. This week, expect follow-ups and updates along the way.


An Update with a Story to Follow

Remember I posted this:

Well, the County Clerk’s Office reached out to me today.  They said they sent that letter down to Finance and Finance rejected it saying it was the Tax Assessor’s job.

I called the Tax Assessor.  His team said that because forms, I’m going to get these numbers wrong, 584 and 5713 are filed with the County at the time a sales is completed, it’s the County’s job.

I called County Finance directly and explained the guidance I have been given.  County Finance personnel said they would talk to a Deputy Commissioner.  They also said they would mention the state laws I cited.


Frankly, I don’t care who does it.  Yes, state law says it is a County task but if things work better for us in Oneida County having the municipalities do it, that’s cool by me.  In any event, they have to get together and make sure the Brett Truetts of the world follow the law.


That’s the heart of this.  Brett, Jim Brock, Ken Roser, Claudia Tenney, David Gordon, and Jim Zecca will all fill the victim role.  Meanwhile, they will skip around guidelines you have to follow.  (Later this week you’ll see what another Claudia Tenney supporter, Dusty Dwyer, is getting away with over in Kirkland via this strategy.)

Mind you, they will continue to do it until somebody gets in their face.  I guess that time is now.
