Times Union Weighs In
North Greenbush elections are getting noticed by the Times Union and we here at the Pipeline agree with their analysis that democracy won in North Greenbush on Primary Day when Charles Smith defeated Al Spain for the Democratic nomination for Town Supervisor.
Mr. Spain says he wants to "do what's best for the town" and asked Democratic voters to support him on that basis. But the cost of doing so was to rigg an election leaving Mr. Spain to run against himself. Obviously voters didn't think Spain's views were in fact what is best for the town.
Here is the editorial from today's paper. It says it better than we could.
