The voters of East Greenbush and Rensselaer County have lost in court. Let me state up front, I don't believe that a person should hold two offices. There will be a time when there will be a conflict and one cannot serve two masters. Having said that, the Democrats have used dirty tricks again to go against the voters wishes. The voters voted for Cristo and Danaher to represent them at the County Legislature knowing full well that they currently were serving on the Town Board. The Democratic party sued the winners to have them removed from the Town Board. Now we will end up with just three members serving the five positions. The Town law requires a simple majority for a resolution to pass. That means the only way something will pass is for all three survivors voting together to get anything done. that include the appointment of two replacements to the Town Board. The next election is in November so I again state that the voters of East Greenbush are being held hostage for the next 9 months! Mr. Matters, DON'T cave in, stand your ground and represent your constituents. You are our lone voice in this battle. Please do not go along to get along.
