Our town……….. Part VIII
Such a nice place to live and raise a family
Hey, Huntington! What’s up with these
numbers? I guess we all forgot to vote,
or, maybe, we just forgot where to vote,
or, just maybe, we felt our vote wouldn’t
count, so we just stayed home married
to our “e-machines” and our "i-life”.
The politics of this Town have been
disgustingly corrupt for decades
because folks just can’t seem to find
the time to exercise their Constitutional
right to vote every November.
*Suffolk County legislator (18th District)
2,087 vote differential
*Huntington Town council member (3 open seats)
564 vote differential
838 vote differential
(first timer...came close!)
71,266 - total votes cast in this category
*Huntington Town superintendent of highways"
960 vote differential !!!!!
*Huntington Town supervisor
595 vote differential!!!!!
71,266 votes for the Huntington Town Council seats is not a bad number (about 32% of registered voters in the Town. If that number cast a vote for Town Council seats, what were half of them thinking when it came time to use the felt marker for Town Supervisor and Superintendent of Highways? And, who gives a crap about our County Legislature? Come on, folks! If you care at all about where, how, and by whom your tax dollars are being spent, you really need to pay attention. You also need to follow through and fill in a complete ballot. Did anyone flip their ballot over? If you did, you saw your chance to weigh in on proposals and propositions that are going to cost you a lot more of what you already don’t enjoy paying.
Please go back and take a look at the
vote differentials, and then tell me your vote doesn’t count.
Wake up, Huntington
