Nobody cares like Frank

Letter to the Editor;

I have voted in every election since I became of age many, many moons ago. I am a proud female Hispanic Democrat but more importantly I am an informed voter. I listen to debates, read extensively about the candidates’ positions/voting record, check who contributes to their campaigns before I make a decision. Being an informed voter is of paramount importance especially in local elections where the candidates’ positions/votes affect us directly. The 11th Senatorial District in Queens, a predominately Democratic district, has voted for Senator Frank Padavan, a Republican, for the past 35 years. This has been accomplished without negative campaigns, intrusive phone calls, or myriad of mailings. They have voted for Senator Padavan because he is dedicated, hard working and not beholden to special interests groups. Senator Padavan represents his constituents’ best interests regardless if said interests are politically popular or not.

The counting of the 2008 Senatorial votes has taken a disproportionate amount of time. Now that the New York City Board of Elections has voted to uphold, formalize and finalize the prior bi-partisan ruling declaring certain ballots invalid Councilman Gennaro must stop stalling and making futile attempts to change the established guidelines. It diminishes us all, as well our Democracy, if unqualified ballots are counted regardless of who cast them. We, the tax payers of the 11 Senatorial District in Queens, need representation in Albany. We need Senator Padavan fighting on our behalf.

Gennaro's mailings during the election were the dirtiest I've ever seen. I'll never vote for him.

Despite his position, Senator Padavan often performed the duties of the City Councilman in our area. This is because our City Councilpersons were never able to get the job done or bothered to listen to us. Padavan has always done his best for the entire community. Who is this Gennaro anyway? Some guy who illegally posted signs throughout our neighborhood? Is this how he plans on serving us?

Give up Gennaro

Jim Gennaro ran a sleazy campaign against an honest and forthright campaign that Senator Padavan ran. Justice Kerrigan should have recused himself from this case since he was appointed by the same people that are representing Jim Gennaro in court. The ballots were deemed invalid by the Board of Elections and that should stand. This entire effort to have BOE invalidated ballots recounted is precedent setting and is also a move to keep Senator Padavan from being seated when the Senate reconvenes so they can elect a Demoncratic Majority Leader

Frank Padavan is a true statesman and civil servant who represents and advocates for the concerns of his constituients. Gennaro is a defamed politian only interested in furthering his own career.

What an embarassment for padavan. If all the bloggers are right and Padavan is so great, why is he is ahead just a few hundred votes out of 100,000 cast ? why did a Councilman who represents 1/30th of his district get 50,000 votes against him ?

Maybe you didn't hear about the Obamamania that swept across the land bringing out people who never voted before and all of them mindlessly voting straight down the line.

Nobody Cares Less than Padavan said...

When is the fact that Frank is a draft dodger going to come out ? Why didnt Frank serve in the military when he was of legal age ? why did he get a deferment in order to get his Masters degree ? why did he join the weekend warriors of the Army Corps of Engineers based in Fort Totten Bayside when he was 42 years old ?

Obama didnt create any surge at all. If thats the strategy Padavan is going to have going into 2010, he will get beat by twenty points. The guy is toast. How pathetic that his supporters use that as an excuse. Obamamania created a surge in Mark Weprins district which is 60 percent Jewish and Frank lost the district ? Or Ann Carozzas district which Frank broke even ? Obama ? really ?

Prediction: Padavan will run a horribly negative campaign in 2010 which will backfire since folks are already tired of him. Gennaro will spend two years working the district, have all organized support from labor etc, plus $2 million to run his campaign. Frank is toast.

Do you think I can't tell that the stream of negative comments are all coming from one person?

Wow, youre real smart. Now if you could take the next two years to figure out how to import 10,000 right wing lunatics to the district, Frank may have a chance of holding on.

"Obama didnt create any surge at all."

HA HA HA HA! Where have you been sticking your head? Up your ass? Of course he did. None of these races would have ended up this way if not for Obama.

Looks like Frank Padavan messed with the wrong people. Maybe he shouldnt have picked up the phone and made those calls.

I do feel that many voters voted straight Democratic giving Gennaro a huge benefit, also the demographics of the community have changed considerably and many voters where not aware of either candidates record and opted to vote straight down party line. I thought Mark Weprin ran unopposed?
More voters wider margin

The Saint John's University's overt dislike for Senator Padavan and his stance against the schools off campus dorms put their big bucks/influence behind Gennaros campaign. The buses Gennaro supplied that ran from early in the morning to 9pm from the university to the voting site helped.
I am curious did Gennaro,Weprin serve in the military??

The folks at the Parkside Group will stop at nothing, they are sore losers!

Again,

Gennaro = Slimeball

More curious... who paid for the bus that took students to the polls every half hour during the day?

No wonder there is a problem with obesity...the polls were less than five blocks away!

the problem isn't the bus. the problem is the fact that people can't stop stuffing their faces with junk food.

Jim Gennaro call Rick Ross. You could use some cult deprogramming. your freaking guru is dead already.

www.rickross.com

call Steven Hassan and read his book Combatting Cult Mind Control.

You and Gary Ackerman need help because you are a mind controlled member of the Sri Chinmoy Meditation Center Church, Inc. .
GET HELP NOW

I don't want a brainwashed, programmed cult zombie in public office. You already got the cult leader buried in his own tennis court. Your political career is in the coffin with your guru, Chinmoy and it's just like him. rotting.

Go Frank, Go.
