A Submitted Comment As A Guest Post

Who is the senator, Darrel Aubertine or Drew Mangione?

Based on today’s Watertown Daily Times it is Drew!

Nothing but excuses, whether they are from Drew or Darrell the pattern is the same, its always-poor pitiful Darrel and blame the big bad Republicans. 

The bottom line whether you are on the local school board, the United Way, County Legislature, State Legislature or Congress you need relationships to get the job done. You need to be assertive, you need to stand up adamantly for the people you represent, and Darrell Aubertine does not, he is a nice person, who is always relying on others, such as today’s comment in the paper "his conference." We did not elect Malcolm Smith to fight for us; we elected Darrel Aubertine, to work with people like Betty Little, NOT because she is the chair, but because she is a neighboring Senator. Why not call her, visit her office, or talk to her on directly on the floor while in session! 

No - it is easier to blame the Republicans for all the breakdowns that exist. You may fool some of the people some of the time, but the pattern is becoming crystal clear, it is very apparent lately with failure after failure because Darrel Aubertine no longer has the majority staff of the Assembly looking out for him now, he just leaves it to DREW to answer the hard questions.

Excellent point. Every time the going gets rough -- usually by some self-imposed flub -- Sen Aubertine goes into hiding. See NYPA flap, hiring his sister and now the "How a Bill Becomes a law" flub.

Caught with his trademark deer-in-the-headlights stare, Drew, Cort Ruddy, Cathy Calhoun or some surrogate always rushes in to take up the spin control.

Come on, Darrel. We elected you because we thought you were "one of us." Stand up and 'splain yourself, Lucy!
