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.
