GORDON CAMPAIGN UPDATE

FUNDRAISER

The Gordon Campaign held a fundraiser at the Old Daley Inn, out to Crooked Lake, on September 22. A very nice place. The exposed stone work is to die for. Really, a cool place. We might run for office just to hang there.You can go to Jim's facebook page for the photos.

One question: Does the crowd look a little thin, even for a Tuesday night? Sure, you could argue that there was a new episode of 'Sex Sent Me to the E.R.' on that night, as well as the Breaking Bald infomercial. Still, not exactly elbow-to-elbow.

On the upside, no police were called to the fundraiser.

DIVIDE THE CITY?

Gordon also commented on the recent tax bill clusterfuck.

In a facebook post, Gordon stated:

Another example of our floundering city government. This "mistake" may end up costing taxpayers more and jeopardizing school district funding, I wonder if the Troy School District will be affected just as the Lansingburgh?

There's plenty to criticize in the tax bill mess. Isn't that one of the few things you need to get right? Hell, borrow a calculator if you need to. Take off your socks if you need extra digits.

However, Gordon's attempt to divide the city, Lansingburgh vs Troy proper, seems counter-productive. Far be it from us to stop him from being pro-burgh, anti-rest of the city. It just seems a strange campaign technique.

On the upside, no police were called to his facebook page post.


This has been your Gordon Campaign Update.

Joe Bruno was expected at the fundraiser, but bailed. You gotta wonder.

Rodney get the Pope endorsement today. Rodney will send his own 3 wise men. Cooper,Cox and Jim DeSeve to receive his papal blessings. The pope will also bless their Tom Wade voodoo doll made entirely of asphalt wood chips and a pair of leggings. The three will be escorted out abruptly from there papal visit when they mistakenly identify a picture of mother Theresa as Tom Wade number two girl Cathy Conroy. HG4YN

Perhaps if Harry spent more time running Gordon's campaign and less time trolling the blogs and obsessing about Cooper Gordon would have a 4% chance of winning instead of the 0% chance he has now! Harry is poison, he ruined Carmellas shot at mayor and he us destroying Gordon's slim chance, although Mr Gordon isn't doing himself any favors with is actions. They still don't get it. Get rid of Harry, get rid of Crist, replace with likable people and start rebuilding the republican base. It's not rocket science

As a political junkie who was a fan of both the Poloi and Tailspin the writings of HG4YN remind me of Harry's top enforcer, The Garbageman.

Now your mentioning Deseve all of a sudden Harry, why? because we were all reminded what a scumbag you are treating him.that way? I'll take Cooper, Deseve, and Cox, yes Cox, over Tutunjians, Crist, and Crawley any day of the week. You need serious help with your obsession

Joe Bruno blew off Jim Gordon bwahahahahaha!! Like there was ever any doubt. Bruno would never show up at an event for that fool. Jim's a loser, plain and simple. It's all over him like a stink.

He'd be lucky if his wife showed up!

Interesting that Gordon didn't hold his fundraiser in "the Lansingburgh" or even in the city of Troy? I smell a plot brewing. If Gordon gets Mayor will he try to annex Averill Park?

Vito said...

Does Jim Gordon hate Troy? Why is he having fundraisers in Averill Park?

Maybe hes taking a page out of his buddy Tedesco's book and pretending to live in Troy after moving to the suburbs. These jackwads think they're too good for Troy but they think they can turn it around? Total Bullshit. Gordon's a moron !

Jim's got my vote. He's a moral man with strong family values. A team player and a joy to work with.

Thanks Carrie, I needed a good laugh!

Is it true Harry took home all the food left over from the night. There was a lot of food leftover because no one showed. Harry packed his trunk with food and was a happy man. That's just what I heard

I will probably hate myself for asking, but what the hell is an asphalt wood chip? I know I've been away from the game for a while, but I tried to keep up with the vernacular.

If your trying to be mayor of Troy, why hold a fundraiser in another city? Why not give a Troy restaurant the business? Let me guess, this was Harry's idea? Also if your running for mayor, do you really need to do things that would make your spouse call the police?

I'm not defending Gordon by any stretch but it's not unheard of to hold a fundraiser in another municipality. I don't know why you wouldn't want to us a venue in the city but its not a cardinal sin.

Its always been Burgh v the rest of the city only the rest of the city doesn't pay attention. Lansingburgh is a pain in the ass. Always whining. They think they're special and I guess they are, in a way.

It's not a huge deal, but geez, he's running for mayor of Troy. Troy has many venues to choose from. Why go to another city? Just wondering
