Please post this, it was printed as a letter to the editor in a magazine that I get. The guy wrote a complaint letter to Dennis Gallagher and Gallagher showed up at his house unannounced to confront him! He's so, so sick:
"As you predicted, I did get a call from Dennis Gallagher on Monday after he received my email. He left a message on my machine since I was not yet home from work to get the call. I didn't have a chance to return his call when there was a ring on my bell. Dennis Gallagher appeared at my front door. I was a little taken by surprise just getting home from work shortly before and didn't have the presence of mind to ask him all the questions I wanted to ask him.
He told me as far as me not voting for him again that it wasn't an issue since he does not plan on running for any other public office and that he cannot get reelected since this is second term. After he said that I asked if he had any other aspirations to run for any other public office and he emphatically stated "no." I asked again - "So you are no longer going to be a politician?" he stated, "That is correct."
We will see, I heard it straight from his mouth that he no longer intends to seek public office - if he goes back on his word and I see him on the ballot for any office I will take it that he lied to me directly. He'll probably have an answer for that too saying that he didn't intend to at the time, but he was convinced otherwise or some other such nonsense - That's what I would call talking out of both sides of your mouth.
All I know under Mr. Gallagher's watch is that we lost Neiderstein's, C-Town a neighborhood supermarket on Fresh Pond for a Staples, and possibly even St. Saviour’s - which he also had an answer. He stated he is working out a deal where he can probably save the church, but most of the surrounding land would go towards housing."
Sheesh...the Crapper is almost at a loss for words. Although, I must say, it's interesting that Gallagher is insisting that he isn't running for office. If that is the case, then why is he raising money? It could be because in NYS, you are allowed to:
