The Times-Journal Misses Mayor Sellers

About halfway through the Times-Journal’s ridiculous editorial entitled “In Absentia” I realized it was going to be one of those annoying editorials that made me want to call up Jim Poole just to tell him to shut the hell up. If you want to take a public official to task for not showing up at Board meetings and not responding to citizen’s calls, I can understand that. But in this case, the Times-Journal goes way overboard. In the editorial, Mayor Sellers is criticized not for his poor attendance at Village meetings, but at, get this, memorial day ceremonies! He is also skewered for not showing up regularly enough at the annual meetings of Cobleskill Partnership Incorporated, a voluntary organization of which Mr. Sellers is a committee member.

Why Mr. Sellers’ attendance is so absolutely crucial and essential at these annual CPI meetings? Oh yes, according to the Times-Journal it was an “opportunity to schmooze with local entrepreneurs”. Hey, good schmoozing opportunities don’t come along every day.

Sellers is also criticized for not being involved with the “remodeling” of the corner of Main and Division St. But if I remember correctly, there were plenty of people who “had a hand” in the project already. I seem to remember seeing all their faces in the obligatory Times-Journal photo-op a few weeks ago. Another missed schmoozing opportunity, I guess. If anyone can think of any more events in the village that the Mayor has missed please contact Mr. Poole at once.

Then the editorial informs us that Mr. Sellers is on vacation in Peru, a revelation most likely greeted with the loudest collective ‘who gives a shit?’ in recent memory. I am still scratching my head trying to figure out exactly how this constitutes news. I know that the Times-Journal loves to bash Sellers as the “no-show mayor” and I know that its hard to stray from the established talking point, but this is grasping at straws.

If anyone reading this has any contact with Sellers, be sure and remind him to send Jim Poole a postcard from Machu Picchu.

I hope Mike gets the hell out of Cobleskill, like I did. That place will eat your soul alive.

Maybe the TJ editor should ask CONGRESSMAN SCHUMER where he spent his vacation!!!!

The noble experiment of putting a 21 year old in charge of a community proved to be interesting. The voters got what they asked for. At the time the choices were scant. People were fed up with Gilmore. In all fairness to Sellers riding herd on Galasso, Mcguire, and McKay would have been difficult even for a seasoned pol. Great resume builder for the kid. Nowhere in it will be that he vacationed in Peru without Patsy Poole's OKay. I wish him well and hope this experience hasn't soured him too much.

The TJ will follow the rest of the MSM down the tubes. The reporter covering the Village meetings is noted for her timber rattling yawns in between reading Redbook articles. Yet she can tell when a Mare's in heat. She should be writing jingles for Timberline shoes. Who cares what the TJ says . They are dinosaurs!!!!!!!

Reply from an avid fan of this site:

You don't read the TJ. Your probably better off --definitely a dollar richer. A couple of weeks ago they (The TJ) made at least a half dozen references to a "Congressman Schumer" in their front page article. This is what the witty an urbane Senator Lopez (hint more sarcasm)was pointing out. You not only don't get the joke you can' t spell the Senator's fucking name right.
God-- some people just don't get cultivated humor.

Hey Gore:

And you don't know what a contraction is. Your should be you're.

Sir Edmond Hillbilly said...

Talking about the TJ as if it were a real newspaper is like wearing an oxygen bottle and crampons to climb Vrooman's Nose.

Times Journal?
Isn't that the rag that fills up half of each issue with every grade school and high school sports event in Schoharie county and the other half with hill billy letters to the editor?

Apparently the rarified air in Macchu Picchu had an effect on the Mayor. He came from the mountains with a tablet that said "let there be flouride in our water". And it was done.

why not lets put a KID in charge at ACE too. He cant even go piss unless he has his daddy's permision too. Case in point have a regester lady who has a shit load of complaints against her and she is still not fired..is he that scared of her. Maybe he should ask daddy what he should do,as soon as he gets his head out of the office GIRL's ass.

The mayor does need to get the hell out of Cobleskill. What a piece of shit he is! Last time I was even in that hell hole of a village he got kicked out of Locomotions for bringing in underage kids! WTG Mr. Mayor! I'm sure the residents are proud... and still inbreeding..

Interesting post... Looks like solid state memory is really beginning to take off. Hopefully we'll start seeing decreasing solid-state drive prices soon. $5 32 GB SDs for your DS flash card... imagine that!
