Imre Beke, Sr. – A Confused Admirer

Dump Terry Bernardo

Imre Beke, Sr. is a huge fan of our legislator, but he can’t remember her name:

    January 9, 2010
    From Imre Beke, Sr. to Kandy Santosky

    Dear Kandy:
    Probably you know that Terry Bernardino is our Town’s Republican representative in the Ulster County Legislature. I enclose her letter that may be useful in the future. Please forward it to your friends.
    God bless, Imre

Imre Beke, Sr. – a bit confused about a Committeeman’s obligations – is trying to justify his refusing to carry Manuela’s petition:

    January 8, 2010
    From Biostemworld ( to Jon Dogar-Marinesco

    Dear Jon,
    …You also claim that I neglected my obligation as a Committeeman. I was elected to a position as an Ulster County Committeeman. That is also the basis of my position as a Town Committeeman. My obligation as a Committeeman, both Town and County, is to support the democratically determined decision of the County Committee – whether I happen to agree with that position or not. A Committeeman’s position is one of authority only through the Committee as a whole, not as an individual. Clearly your assertions with regard to a Committeeman’s obligations are both incorrect and divisive…

As you see above, Imre Beke, Sr. has difficulty in grasping the meaning of unofficial nominating convention:

    June 16, 2011
    From David O’Halloran to Rochester Republican Committee

    …Our unofficial county convention last week is just that, unofficial… I encourage all committee members to carry petitions for all county candidates. As committee members we are required to support all registered Republicans that seek our support to represent our voting district.
    David O’Halloran

Forget about Imre Beke, Sr.’s refusal to circulate petitions for Town of Rochester Republican Councilwoman Manuela Michailescu. Let’s focus instead on the stellar job he did for candidate Terry Bernardo. Let’s look at Sheet #152 (below) – containing all the signatures for Terry Bernardo witnessed by Imre Beke, Sr.

Dump Terry Bernardo

Out of 13 signatures, I objected to 12 for having fatal errors: some didn’t show the town, four signers committed perjury by making false statements about being a “dully enrolled voter of the Republican Party,” four signers – including both Bekes – signed twice, Imre Beke, Jr. signed on an out of order date, while Imre Beke, Sr. witnessed his own signature!

Ulster County Board of Elections upheld all my objections by unanimous vote. Out of 13 signatures, only one – on line 5, highlighted above – was left standing.

Thank God for emails…
Even our Legislator seemed to know what “committee people” should do:

    July 26, 2010
    From Terry Bernardo to Rochester Republican Committee

    … As committee people, it is our job to know what a proper petition looks like…

As a Republican, I can’t accept to be represented by an obviously confused gentleman, stuck in blind partisan political thinking, incapable of carrying out his Committeeman’s duties.

    Too bad most politicians can’t be bothered with this idea. It’s not difficult or complicated. It’s just a detailed process. Get the details right and maybe have some respect for the voters. And don’t cry foul when challenged. Admit you screwed up and move on.

    This man is a committeeman and has a difficult time with the basics – I am happy to say that he isn’t representing me! I pity those he is representing – if you want to call it that!
