Is There a Conspiracy to Stop Kristen Grandinetti From Becoming Chairwoman?

Who will be the next council chairwoman. chairman? Kristen Grandinetti, Andrew Touma or Charles Walker?

Who will be the next council chairwoman. chairman? Kristen Grandinetti, Andrew Touma or Charles Walker?

Two weeks ago the Reporter went on record with an editorial recommending that two term councilwoman Kristen Grandinetti be elected council chairwoman for 2016. We had no idea our editorial would cause a stir and set people howling at the notion that we’d seriously promote Kristen for the top council seat.

Over the past several years we’ve clearly demonstrated that we’re not the councilwoman’s biggest supporter. However, our argument to seat her as chairwoman reasoned that, after serving six years on the council, and with other council members having failed to distinguish themselves as chairman, she deserved a year with the gavel.

And yet the cries of displeasure at the mere thought of “Chairwoman Grandinetti” were surprisingly loud if not clear. It seems that those who are desirous of a second year of Chairman Andrew Touma – the mayor is believed to be among the desirous – are arguing that there’s now a “tremendous positive momentum in the city and greater cooperation than ever before between council and mayor.” This new era of positive momentum and new cooperation must be maintained by keeping chairman Touma in place.

Or so goes the pro Touma doctrine.

If out of control spending, a mysterious recurring city deficit, frozen water lines, a trash and recycling plan that’s garbage, a foolish city-wide privatized parking plan, zero governmental transparency, and a 2016 property reassessment plan supported by the current chairman pass for good government, we frankly fail to see it.

As for Charles Walker – a man who has sat in the council chambers for two decades and served as chairman several times – sources tell us he’s testing the waters for yet another run for chairman. He might accomplish that task by putting his arm around council newbies Ezra Scott and Ken Tomkins by promising them each the council chairmanship (2017 and 2018) in return for their support in 2016.

Far be it for the Reporter to speculate as to how quid pro quo political horse trading could impact the careers of the newly elected council members. However, we see nothing but negatives for Scott and Tomkins if they take a bite of Walker’s apple in return for future considerations. Such a Walker temptation would literally be the first test of leadership for the two rookies and it might discredit them from day one of their council term should they succumb. Scott has presented himself as new and fresh. Tomkins has presented himself as a straight forward get’er done candidate. To roll with an elected official, like Walker, straight out of the gate – might label them as “typical deal cutting politicians.”

What we find comical about the question of, “should we or shouldn’t we let Kristen Grandinetti become chairman” is that the council members aren’t electing the leader of the free world, they’re appointing from among their membership, a person who will guide their meetings and represent the face of the council to the residents. There’s nothing more to it.

Nothing more to it, that is, unless the councilmen are conspiring to prevent the councilwoman from becoming chairwoman.

  47. With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism
    or copyright violation? My site has a lot of completely unique content I’ve either written myself
    or outsourced but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the
    internet without my agreement. Do you know any methods to help reduce content from being ripped
    off? I’d definitely appreciate it.

    more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is important
    and all. But just imagine if you added some great pictures or video clips to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with images and
    videos, this site could certainly be one of the best in its
    field. Terrific blog!

    looking at alternatives for another platform.
    I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    existing here at this website, thanks admin of this web site.

  57. I believe what you published was very reasonable. However, what about this?

    suppose you were to write a awesome post title? I am not saying your
    information isn’t solid, but what if you added a post title to possibly get people’s attention? I mean Is There a Conspiracy to Stop Kristen Grandinetti From Becoming Chairwoman? – Niagara Falls Reporter is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to look at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create post titles to get people to click.
    You might add a related video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would make your posts a little livelier.
