Someone please remind me again why New York has such a ridiculously late primary? Overnight, the campaign signs have magically sprouted from people’s lawns like so many mushrooms. It is also amusing to cross the town line from Geddes to Camillus and see the signs instantly change from Ryan vs. Magnarelli, to Mahoney vs. Sweetland. Although I don’t know if they’ve really done their demographic research all that thoroughly because last time I knew, the 4th ward of Camillus (ie the one closest to Geddes) still had quite a few Democrats. (But who knows, it could be I am really the last one left.)
Clearly, this is truly the most important election of our lifetimes (really, it is) and Change CNY is on the case. He writes about the dueling green plans of Sweetland (GOP, for those who haven’t been playing the home game) and Ryan (Democrat), which you can find more about here from the Post-Standard.
I would also be remiss if I didn’t include the obligatory campaign website links for the four of them:
Ed Ryan. His website talks about his job creation strategy, which will have (sic) “three basic tenants.” (Well, downtown Syracuse now has four basic tenants so I don’t really see where that’s an improvement, sorry.)
and Bill Magnarelli may not be down with that there Internets thing, I’m not sure, but I can’t find his campaign website. Here’s Magnarelli’s website. (Thanks, Aaron!)
