Loretta Eats Crow
After several days of glossy mailings, negative campaigning, letters, negative flyers, robo calls and countless out of state canvassers that were working for the AFL-CIO and being paid by "someone" $100 per day (plus food and hotel), it appears to have been a big waste of money and time.
Senator Weinberg's people lost in almost every district challenged. So what will be the future of the Teaneck Democrats and who is to credit and blame for this big defeat? In my opinion, some of the blame goes to the Teaneck Dems themselves that have used their position on County Committee to mount campaigns against (insert your choice here) and not lobby for (same).
Some of the losers are:
Paul Cunningham (the current chair)
Almita Honis (mother of the infamous Monica Honis)
The Gussen family
So what does this mean for Teaneck residents and what was really won last night.
Was this another Ferierro v Weinberg fight?
Was this a Teaneck new v Teaneck old? Or were there many people disenfranchised by the Teaneck Democrats that it was time for a change.
Only time will tell if Loretta will start delivering more money to Teaneck.
Maybe we will finally qualify for (miraculously) school funding or extraordinary aid.
But one thing is for certain, with so many unhappy losers, the fights have just begun.
