GOP picks a real winner for CD30


Queens G.O.P. Endorses Como

A reader who attended the vote passed along a couple of highlights from the event. First was from Como’s nominating speech, made by Rick Metzger, husband of Gallagher’s chief of staff, Linda Metzger, who said that Como agreed to retain most of Dennis’ staff.

Strike 1 - Why would he want to retain that dead weight, especially those who were complicit in Gallagher's corruption?

In Como’s speech to the group, he did not mention Ognibene by name, but, according to the attendee, he did refer to “some old guy who hasn’t been around for 15 years."

Strike 2 - Ognibene has only been out of office for 7 years...

Como is the president of the board of elections.

Strike 3 - Sounds like a conflict of interest to me.

Exercises bad judgment, can't count, has no sense of decency and is building the blight on the neighborhood pictured? Como sounds like the perfect guy to replace Gallagher!

"In these times where voters' faith in their public officials has been shaken to the core given former Gov. [Eliot] Spitzer's corruption, Gov. [David] Paterson's disclosures and [Gallagher's] plea bargain, it is refreshing and reassuring to have someone of Anthony Como's sterling character, caliber and ability stand for office," Queens County Republican Party Chairman Phil Ragusa said.

God help council district 30!

Anthony Como is NOT smart. He rarely has anything to say worthwhile, he is a poor public speaker and even Elizabeth Crowley beat him in the debate.
That's how bad he is.

what is with the people of this area? why are they so stuck in a time warp?

I do believe Anthony Como has integrity and I'm happy the guy is running. A former Queens prosecutor, he has demonstrated a keen intellect. Don't confuse a quiet and reserved manner with a lack of intelligence. Actually, that's stupidity on your part.

Oh boy- more jealousy of houses that are bigger and nicer than yours. I don't know if this guy is smart or not, but I'm glad to see houses improved and made to look better.
Crowley really is a joke, to me it is between Como and Ognibene.

Como is just another mob cronie who was groomed since a young kid to white wash his past but check into his family and background and you will find a very interesting trail.

Queens County Republican Party Chairman Phil Ragusa must be taking money under the table from the Democrat party.

Putting up Como (of giant outhouse fame - it certainly is not jealousy to note the violations that caused a Stop Work Order) against the super-smart Crowley to make Crowley look even smarter is brilliant strategy. Only the Crowley family members would have been able to pull this off.

All Crowley has to do now is keep pointing out Como's conflict of interest by retaining his current position on the Board of Elections.

And to keep reminding voters that Como is planning to keep all staffers from Gallagher's office. Why did Gallagher need extra time since the deal was set that his staff was continuing employment.

Crowley can also reveal Como's intention to employ Gallagher. Remember, Gallagher did not confess to a felony, and his plea deal did not also require that he never be on the public payroll again.

Gallagher can be the office "Party Boy", arranging all the lapdances, binges, and occasional rapes that are required to keep the hard-working Como and staffers sharp.

The brilliant legal-eagle Tapalaga and LaSala can see that the cover-ups are legally acceptable.

There you go, Crowley. Start revealing.

I support young Mr.Como. But I would, with an open mind, listen to what you are implying if you can back it up just a bit. Give me (and other readers0 somewhat of a road map. We'll do the rest. If there is something to your allegation, I'd be very troubled.

Buy the way, Como by way of Gallagher sent out his first attack on Ognibene, pretending to be Crowley:

Crowley Crusaders

It's so obvious what the 2 pigs are doing, it's almost comical. Pinky's MO: Anonymous attack flyers. I am no fan of Crowley, but this is utterly dispicable and desperate on the part of Como and Pinky.

Serf Maltese is a fucking pig, so it's no surprise he endorsed Como.

Wow, there is a lot of anti-como rants going on here... how many of you are from the neighborhood? Is there that much ignorance in CD30?

Everyone knows that we need someone smart enough to keep good political relations with the city and the local elected leaders... I don't know anyone that will do a better job than Anthony. That's how a neighborhood thrives, not by calling the Mayor's staff nazis.

"Everyone knows that we need someone smart enough to keep good political relations with the city and the local elected leaders... I don't know anyone that will do a better job than Anthony. That's how a neighborhood thrives, not by calling the Mayor's staff nazis."

What we actually need is someone smart and honest enough to keep good relations with CD30 constituents (Taxpayers) by representing their interests vigorously and exclusively.

What we actually don't need is anyone who thinks that kissing the ass of any other politician is required for the job.

A strong representative of the taxpayers will accomplish all the requirements of the job.

If the mayor's staff are nazis, don't you think someone needs to publicize that fact?

So, if Como thinks that ass kissing is required, he can do that on his own dime, not ours. If that's his specialty, as the writer claims (is Como the writer?), there are plenty of NYC politicians bent over to be pleasured by him. They can pleasure each other for all I care. But, on his time and dime.

It's time CD30 had a representative.

CD30 - How about remembering there are SIX candidates running not just THREE.
Also, whomever is elected is supposed to also work for the whole city. Put in a hack and the whole city pays for our mistake.

Anyone who is thinking of voting for Como, PLEASE drvie by his home on the coner of 64th road & 82nd place and take a good look at the future of this neighborhood. He said he is only adding a few bedrooms, well the fondation was enlarged in height to accomodate
12' headroom in the basement. Good luck to all of us we need help and will not get it from him.

his house is tooo big. i feel inferior. leave the guy alone, so he added a few bedrooms because he wants to stay in MV and not move out. so he raised his foundation, he didnt expand it. i give the guy credit for staying in the neighborhood and trying to start a family. though i hope he doesnt end up single with 2 kids, oops EC.

Anthony Como could not make it as lawyer. That's why he must work as counsel to Serph Maltese. Another do-nothing politician.

It's time to clean house of these Republican club house morons.

Is this guy kidding? Did he ever have a conversation with this bloated jerk?

Anthony Como doesn't have a clue of what's going on in the community. Listen to him when he speaks. He uses clich├ęs to cover up the fact that he is clueless.

It figures that he advises Maltese, another out of touch has-been.

Time to flush folks!

How about flushing two other GOP dopes down the toilet... Phil "Stupid Mario" Ragusa and Vince "I'll Do Anything for a Buck" Tabone.

Two of the biggest losers in Queens.

jealous of his house? I live around the corner in a tudor worth more than that pos he's building. The old house that was there was a 4 bedroom, arts& crafts style. Asking price when it was on the market $1.2mil. So let's ask a logical question here; how does an assistant district attorney, queens politician, Board of Elections worker afford that and the $'s to do a complete teardown and build? The same way a rookie cop making 25 grand a year does - HE'S A THIEF! Just like all the other fat slob politicians who claim they love Middle Village and represent us. I'm sure he'll waddle his fat ass down to Gallagher's house up the block for more political "advice".
