Tom Ognibene is a whiny crybaby

A copy of the following letter was received by the Queens Gazette.

Hon. Philip Ragusa
Chairman, Queens County Republican Party
14-15 157th Street
Whitestone, N.Y. 11357

Dear Phil:

I was shocked and dismayed to learn that the Queens County Executive Committee of the County Republican Party met on March 26th, 2008 for the purpose of endorsing a candidate in the 30th Council District Special Election without extending an invitation to me. As you may recall, I made a personal phone call to you two (2) weeks ago to notify you that I had filed with the Board of Elections and with the New York City Campaign Finance Board as an official candidate for election to that vacated office. It is unfathomable that you would hold a clandestine meeting and invite only one of the announced candidates to speak and ask for the county support. As you are aware, I served as the first councilman in the newly created 30th Council District for ten (10) years, seven (7) of which were served as the Minority Leader of the City Council, the second highest elected Republican office in the City of New York. Many of my colleagues in the party, including you personally, and in government, had advised me that they believed my service to both my community and to the party represented the hallmark of dedicated service by an elected official.

In a time of political and electoral turmoil, where the candidates must run for the above office three (3) times in 18 months and dedicate their time to election rather than governmental matters, I believe my 'hands-on" experience and proven record make me an ideal candidate that will be ready to serve on day one. I would have greatly appreciated the opportunity to make my case before the members of our Executive Committee, and I am deeply saddened that you did not give them an opportunity to hear and evaluate all the candidates.

Very truly yours,
Thomas V. Ognibene
Candidate 30th CD


Maybe they'd rather go for a McMansion builder than someone who was caught on tape taking bribes from a building consultant. God help Council District 30. It will get exactly the bimbo it deserves. The candidates suck because the community leaders here are enablers. Thankfully, I'm outta here soon and onto greener Queens pastures.

I will never forget when I was at the Lead Paint Hearings Ognibene stood up and said "Children only get lead paint poisoning because mothers don't vacumn enough". I almost dove off the City Hall balcony wanting to choke him.

Voters, there are other candidates to choose from.

"Thankfully, I'm outta here soon and onto greener Queens pastures"

Where is there any green left in Queens? Don't let Bloomberg know, cause the motherf#cker will chop it down with his #1 hatchetman Adrian Benopee.

Then they'll make you pay to plant saplings by the street.

Isn't there another guy running from Ridgewood named Charles Ober?

I read about him on lost in the Ozone and he sounded half decent, like more of a volunteer than a political hack. Maybe we should back him. The district may not be lost yet.

Yeah,too bad Ridgewood's council power is divided between two members.

Ober may be a nice guy, but this is going to be Crowley's seat. The deal was already worked out between her cousin, Joe, and Serf Maltese.

Pinky's departure offers the perfect opportunity to flush the District 30 toilet, and the civic leaders are pulling for the same old garbage. You're right, Crappy, they get what they ask for. Then they bitch about it.

Crowley rocks!!! God save our Queens!

Crowley is without a doubt the best person for the job out of the field of candidates.

Crowley is a talentless hack who has no brains whatsoever. This bitch advocated for housing at St. Saviour's while the community was asking for a park. This asshole advocated against a zip code change for South Elmhurst when the majority of people living there were for it. This is the moron who thinks more candidates in the race mean she wins by a greater victory. This is the brainiac who was locked in an office with Brian McLaughlin. Please, anyone is better than Elizabeth Crowley.

Looks like Global Strategy Group is up early today.

Is Elizabeth still giving blowjobs to Brian or was that only before he pled guily?

THEY DON'T WANT YOU TOM !

Is that clear enough
you crooked underhanded hack? !!!

Maybe you would better serve
the public good
by serving a jail sentence!

I think Tom made a deal with Elizabeth to be the spoiler in this race. Either that or he's tired of working at his real job.

Yes there is another candidate, Charles Ober. I did my research of candidates. He's a long-time commumity activist.

Activist = volunteer work = gets no salary for work.

Party hack = no work = gets big money for no work.

Folks, use your common sense and everyone get out the vote and clean house.

Crowley!!!

Hey, Crowley knows how to spell her name.

Charles Ober has spent the last 20 years volunteering to serve the Ridgewood Community. He is passionate about serving the people and is not part of the corruption that has infected the district for too many years. He is intelligent and a hard-worker. He deserves a chance to make a difference. He wants to serve and our vote is needed to put him there. A change is what this district desperately needs and Ober is not part of the ruling political machine. I think he will get my vote.

Lizabeth Crowley is the best, she got mountains on her chest!

Kid all you want about the various candidates assets, but the point is that now we have the opportunity to get rid of the boys club members and bring new and uncorrupt energy in - vote Ober.

Definetly not Crowley.. When Queens Crap printed the link to her campaign donations - she has Metallic Lathers Local 46 and alot of Local 46 business managers donating to her campaign - Local 46supplies the labor that
builds hi-rises. An then I asked myself why would they donate money to get her elected in Queens. Hmmm!!!!

The republicans of this district make me laugh so hard that I cannot catch my breath.
Is Crowley the best person for the job - NO, but she definatly has my vote.
How do you expct the people of this community to ever vote for one of your candidates again after all the corruption that your previous electees have brought us - over decades!
It has gotten so bad that your last golden boy, the notorius Pinky has blown up in your own faces.
You have all wet your own bed, now you can sleep in it.

If Charles Ober or one of his family members post his 20 bio one more time on any blog, I might throw up

Ralph said...

sorry, 20 year bio*

I am not Charles Ober or a member of his family. But I am a Democrat trying to tell you that some the Democrats are just as bad as the Republicans that are running and you should clean house instead of whinning.

Whoever votes for Elizabeth Crowley will get exactly what they deserve - nothing.
