Opinion: Both Sides Offer Hope for Future

Written By Editor on 5/12/14 | 5/12/14

Over the past two weeks, as editor of this publication, I have been fortunate enough to be invited to and attend both the local Republicans "Lincoln Day Dinner," and the Democrats "FDR Dinner," where elected officials and party faithful alike joined together to celebrate their respective parties past, present, and future.  

As I observed leaders in both parties espouse confidence, hope, and optimism for the future of Schoharie County, it dawned on me that neither side was that much different from the other. Sure, there are underlying ideological disputes, but nothing too serious that they shouldn't be able to work together. 

The only exception to that rule would be Democratic candidate for Congress Sean Eldridge, who in stark contrast to Representative Chris Gibson, spent a significant amount of time attacking his opponent in the upcoming congressional election and reflected the worst of party politics today.

However, for the most part, I walked away from both events feeling more hopeful about this county's future, because at the end of the day we all want what is best for our friends and neighbors. Our views might differ, and elections still occur, but our goal of creating a stronger Schoharie County is  - thankfully - a bipartisan platform we can all get behind. 

GOP Picnic Well Attended

Written By Editor on 9/22/13 | 9/22/13

About 100 people showed up for the annual Schoharie County Republican Party picnic at scenic Minekill State Park on Saturday. Among the dignitaries were many candidates for election, as well as others. Sheriff Desmond was a featured guest, as was District Attorney James Sacket. The two have the only two positions running on the County level and are co-hosting a fundraiser next month.

Chairman Lew Wilson thanked the crowd for coming and celebrations began with Assemblyman Peter Lopez. Lopez recounted accomplishments over the last year and beseeched the audience to support Sheriff Desmond, as did James Sacket. State Senator Jim Seward and State Supreme Court Candidate Carol Donnelly Steven. Many of the candidates for Town Supervisor were present, including those from Gilboa, Jefferson, Fulton (both Frank Tatten and Phil Skowfoe, a Democrat), Cobleskill, and Richmondville. There was no rain at the event-- downpours soaked about half of the ceremony last year.
