Thank you David for sharing your thoughts on this blog despite your deeply held belief that the comments here, on Daily Freeman and on TripAdvisor are all my doings.
Let’s take a look at some of your comments:
You are all welcome to critique my chairmanship of the Rochester GOP Committee but it is hard to argue with our committee results. Currently we have 3 candidates for District 21…
While I would like to accept credit for encouraging John Dawson to run for District 21, fact is, I did not…
Have I discouraged Manuela from running again for District 21? Yes.
Allow me to translate: “I am David O’Halloran, the chairman of the Rochester GOP, and I measure the success of my Committee by the number of candidates; look! I got three of them running for Legislature. You all know that Terry and Manuela did not need my encouragement, you all know that I tried to discourage Manuela from running, and I claim that I didn’t recruit Dawson.” What did the Committee do, again? Why did you think it’s hard to argue with its “success?”
- The “Maryjane” Committee prior to my tenure on town committee differs on many fronts. Good or bad is left to the constituent. A few differences:
1) We encourage all to petition for town committee seats, no challenges, no court cases to prevent primary…
Oh, yeah! That explains why Manuela was challenged both times she ran for a town committee seat.
Because you brought up the previous committee, you might want to know what people think is the big difference: while Marijane’s committee had the integrity to stand up to the Bernardo-Catalano dirty deals, you sold the Republican party to Bernardo, and look where we are now.
- However, for a time you-Jon, were included in the Rochester GOP inner circle and we accomplished great things together. Unfortunately, it quickly fell apart when Shane & I mistakenly “thanked” you at a victory party. We screwed that up and once we were told of the slight, apologized. It was never accepted by you.
Yes David, you screwed that up… after I told you not to do it. Also, you apologized in private for what you did in public. Just saying… And the Rochester GOP inner circle quickly fell apart when I couldn’t take your back-stabbing any longer. Wanna see the scars?
Open up, Davey! It’s swallowing time.
