A Meet the Candidates debate organized by the Friends of Historic Kerhonkson took place on October 28. The local newspapers reported on the questions asked and the answers provided, even mentioned how a Town Board candidate declared himself confused, but didn’t stress enough the fact that the incumbent Supervisor Carl Chipman – who is also President of the Association of Town Supervisors and Village Mayors – dominated the debate with his knowledge of the issues.
The day after the debate a bunch of plywood popped up on Route 209 and somehow explained Tim Bunch‘s weak performance the night before: the guy spent all his energy hand painting unusually wordy electoral signs.
After losing the nomination at both the Conservative and Republican Caucuses, and making people wonder if he is still on the ballot, the candidate Bunch shows – in his diatribes against Carl Chipman – strong determination to maul the truth.
But why attack Lynn Archer – a candidate for Legislator – when you’re running for Town Supervisor? I will tell you why…
The ballot (below) shows Tim Bunch only once, on the Independence line offered by Len Bernardo for a price: bring as many votes as possible for Terry and attack her challenger, Councilwoman Lynn Archer.
That’s why Tim worked hard at painting signs, spreading rumors, distorting the truth and exploiting non-existing issues to Terry Bernardo’s advantage.
According to Len Bernardo‘s moral compass, smearing the challenger of his wife is all “clean politics” – while he cries “dirty politics” on Facebook, presumably because poor Terry was “attacked” with the truth…
