As long as he isn't filling a position that could be filled by a Democrat, eh, TB?

You make it seem like George only cares about his party line, Frank...

Happy New Year to you both, Mr. Wheeler and Draggerman. Jumping on someone who is complimenting the public service of a decent and honest adversary is really a bit much. May 2018 be good to you and see you grow a little less snarky.

TB, your comments bring a new level to "passive aggressive". You are fooling no one - tell us that you were crying in your beer at Buckley's when Councilperson Glinka lost. Enough, George, Enough

Do you really not get it, HB? Do you really not understand that people who oppose each other politically can still have and express respect and regard for each other? Ask, say, John McCain and Joe Biden, they get it. Ask Stan Glinka, he gets it.

When Damon Hagan stepped down as GOP chair and Dave Betts took over, I posted under the 27east piece to say this is a tough and necessary job, and anyone who does it deserves credit. Damon Hagan then posted, thanking me for saying that. Damon ...more

Yes TB, I applaud those that step up, but I don't applaud those that shake someone's hand and stab them in the back and spread rumors about them - the way some political hanks. do around here....so for that I agree with "snarky" Draggerman and Frank Wheeler. No matter what you post, I have seen what goes on behind your closed doors. As I said, you are not fooling anyone.....and in your former life, before you retired, did you get paid by the word?
By HB Proud (790), Hampton Bays on Jan 1, 18 6:05 PM
Well, this political "hank" has no idea of what you're talking about, with stabbing and rumors and sinister "closed doors." I don't like to accuse anyone of making things up, but if we're going by what I know about -- and I'm reasonably well-informed -- then you're making things up. Can't waste my time or my pricey per-word skills on responding to fabrications.

someone has a guilty conscious - I did not call YOU a political hack - but I am fully aware of others in your "group" that did act as I described. It would not be tolerated if it was not accepted "at the top" by you. I was raised to have integrity and honesty; apparently that is lost on the democratic committee - win at all costs no matter whose reputation you try to ruin or lies you tell.
By HB Proud (790), Hampton Bays on Jan 2, 18 7:40 AM
Sounds like you know a story the rest of us don't. Do you want to tell us? Put up or shut up.
By Turkey Bridge (1773), Quiogue on Jan 2, 18 2:42 PM
Like I said, you are not fooling a lot of people now. Fool us once shame on you, fool us twice, shame on us...or we are nice enough to forgive once, but not stupid enough to let you do it again. Can't wait for the battle in two years.
By HB Proud (790), Hampton Bays on Jan 2, 18 3:54 PM
All this sleaze innuendo about back-stabbing and rumors and closed doors and ruined reputations, and now this asinine "fool us once" dance -- nothing there, man! What are the facts, the details? For the last time, put up or shut up.
By Turkey Bridge (1773), Quiogue on Jan 2, 18 5:21 PM
TB, well I guess I will just shut up. I won't be showing my cards this time around. In fact, have a blessed 2018 since I will be signing off - see you in November.
By HB Proud (790), Hampton Bays on Jan 2, 18 6:31 PM
I like that second paragraph, I don't think I can get behind the Democrats taking over Congress part. We'll have to wait to be adversaries again until I get bored with my very enjoyable political retirement.

What is so special about serving a 4 year term? I would expect a 20 or 30 year term to earn such a proclamation. Evidently Mr. Glinka earned his recognition based on decades of previous accomplishments and friendships rather than what he accomplished in a 4 year period on the board.
By Walt (265), Southampton on Jan 2, 18 10:14 PM
There are no decades of accomplishments . Hes a seemingly nice employee of a local bank who laid low for 4 yrs. Something doesn’t add up.
By SlimeAlive (698), Southampton on Jan 5, 18 8:01 AM
Can anyone name one thing he did or any lasting impact he made?

rough crowd. i like it

He pushed for the Sandy Hollow Section 8 Project, and for that he should be tarred & feathered.

Pro Hills development also.
