Letter To Editor - The Folly Of Thinking Smithtown Electeds Think About Voters


Letter to the Editor - The People’s Choice?

Isn’t Smithtown politics great?

Where else except the “fiefdom” of Smithtown can a candidate run for Town Council, finish 6TH in a field of 6 [getting only 9.31% of the vote], and become our next Town Councilman?

Where else except Smithtown could a sitting Town Councilman, a known adversary of the incoming Supervisor on every issue for the last decade, now miraculously decide to vote with him to anoint our next Town Council member, a friend and political ally of the Supervisor.

What a surprise! Could it be that this Councilman was promised in return for his vote, he would be allowed to keep his Deputy Supervisor title and the extra $35k annual stipend that goes with it?

No. Couldn’t be that. That we would be ethically wrong. So, I guess we’ll soon find out who the new Deputy Supervisor will be for 2018. Happy New Year!
