Making the case for Ober

Charles Ober’s Signature is a Record of Accomplishments not Just Election Time Puffing

As the special election in the 30th Council District enters the home stretch, each candidate has had an opportunity to market themselves with glossy handouts, appearances at senior centers, at so called debates, including the NY1 Dominic Carter Show “Inside City Hall”, a resume` that includes their education and civic accomplishments and their background. Although I am not a blogger myself, I have read many of the comments posted on blogs by anonymous writers, many who are more venomous than accurate. However, the competent bloggers often link you to newspaper stories or court records to substantiate their claims or accusations. After perusing what the candidates have put in print and listing to what they say and how they say it, I have come to the conclusion that the most sincere and honest candidate is Charles Ober. Charles is not a party candidate and he is the only one that does not have a questionable political past. He is the only one with an outstanding civic record, Incidentally, civics are made up of Volunteers; they are not paid for a no-show job nor are they like past elected officials who only operated with the taxpayers' money.

Take the time this weekend to read and re-read all that the candidates have mailed out and you will agree with me that Charles Ober has the fortitude, the sincerity, the past accomplishments, and the devotion to our community to be elected to represent us in the NYC Council District 30. Charles Ober was endorsed by the very Honorable Councilman Tony Avella and named by Congresswoman Nydia Velazquez as a delegate to The Democratic National Convention. Now! Do your part, get out and vote for Charles Ober on June 3rd.

P.S. Dan Jacoby feels the same way.

So does Pauline Park.

Ober didn't send me any literature, he hired non English speaking people to put it in my mail box which is a federal offense. When I tried to tell the guy that all he could say was "Ober Good yes".

I guess we should only believe political endorsements from celebrities and politicians.

Oh my God what an offense to leave something in a mailbox! Maybe next time they should leave it on your front lawn so you have to pick it up and throw it out. Political candidates have been doing this for years. And the pieces I have gotten bear a "U.S. Postage Paid" permit on them which are never postmarked or cancelled if mailed, so that regulation is covered.

Now there is an ignorant statement!

Why should anyones endorsement matter, except one's own?
