  1. Hate to see families involved with multiple positions in governments, especially when one is a lawyer. Sorry, no more trust here.



  2. Interesting bit of timing by Mr. Brown, according to some who are Democratic insiders he was not a fan of charter change sees’ himself as a uniter, not a divider wish him well! Was Ms. Deleonardis a member of the Ethics Board when Mayor Yepson was found guilty by them of unethical behavior and eventually censored by her peers unanimously? Strange time to be a Democrat in Saratoga Springs!


    1. Ha, It is in fact a “strange time” to be an American! Democrats know however that there is no-such~thing as a “bad time to be a Democrat.” We are getting happier with every day that passes!!


  3. Charlie is a good guy who did great things with what is- essentially – a thankless job.

    The Democrats are a majority party in this city today. That alone qualifies him for Mt. Rushmore in 12866… But it goes deeper than that. Organizing a party that has Yepsen, Madigan, Mathiesen and Franck – each fierce warriors with often competing agendas, to say the least, involved a balancing act, and a skillset that harkens to King Solomon, an ace sheepdog and an Olympic Juggler combined.

    Charlie, if ever you want to have a book ghosted, am I ever your boy! Best of luck to you, and to Courtney: make sure you bring your ruler from school to Party meetings. I bet there will be several knuckles that will need rapping….
