Why the race has begun

April 21, 2013

By NORMAN GREEN I absolutely agree with the Dunkirk OBSERVER’s View (April 13) that it is way too early to start any political campaign that is up for election 19 months from today....

The district is bigger than some states. So ? there are so little people in it. A democratic woman or any democrat better? You are kidding right ?democrats concerned about spending ? you gotta be kidding. i just love democrats and especially women libs. they are so confused and so much fun to watch. the libs have something that is sustainable, wackiness.

"Norman P. Green is the Chautauqua County Democratic Committee chair." Well that explains his lack of caring about anything worthwhile. Remember it was a democrap that pushed the UN-SAFE ACT through like a thief in the middle of the night. That seem to be when dems work best, when no one is looking.

It appears Mr Green has answered all of the Oberver's noted concerns, and then some. This is a well-written response (supported by facts), unlike the partisan criticism that provoked it.

Mr Green are you telling us that "only"one party enjoys the power of incumbency (bully pulpit)used to their advantage?That which you say may play well to some out there but not all of us are lemmings Mr Green!

I'm no big fan of Mr Green, nor am I a staunch party supporter, but since we've resorted to comparing "some out there" to lemmings, then even "they" can see when words are being twisted, with the reason for it being just as obvious.

While I agree with the comments in this article, they mainly focused on the gamesmanship required to win an election. I think the far more important issue here is that neither political strategists nor newspapers should get to decide when it's the "right time" for an American citizen to start running for office. There should only be one measure for that, and it's the moment a person decides they are not being properly represented by their elected official and that they could do a better job...that's it. It was a bit strange that The Observer mentioned Tom Reed has only "been serving our region for about three and a half months." He was a Congressman for two years before that and he supported terrible policies then, so why not start trying to replace him if someone see he's continuing to support terrible policies now?

ims2013-could you give us a couple examples of the "terrible"policies? The Observer was correct regarding the amount of time Tom has represented "our" region.

I contacted Martha along with many other of her fellow Legislators trying to get them to condemn the NY unSAFE ACT.It's a very liberal Democratic district where alot of the locals(rural) don't feel represented by the College Profs,High School teachers and Flaming Liberals that kiss up to Prince Andy and King Obama.They passed a watered down Proclamation against the unSAFE ACT but it wasn't easy to get it in motion.We certainly DON'T need Martha representing this area.
