Terry and Len Bernardo (pictured above in 2007) couldn’t leave well enough alone,
so they dived into politics.
After failing miserably in his attempt to become the first County Executive in 2008, by 2009 Len already left his dirty fingerprints on Ulster County politics as the initiator of the deal that assured his wife a seat in the Legislature.
In 2011, with support from community pillars like David O’Halloran and Jeremy Blaber, Terry Bernardo become a Legislator again.
In 2012, she was installed as the Chairwoman of the Legislature. As you see above, David O’Halloran rushed to exhibit some industrial-strength brown-nosing.
Looking stiff in her Chanel suits, Terry Bernardo started to take herself seriously. I chuckle every time I see the above photo. Terry holds the mike while Mike holds the audience’s attention!
On a flying trapeze or not, every time Terry Bernardo opened her mouth people saw her for what she really was: a clown looking for a circus.
Once she found her circus, Terry Bernardo believed the jackpot was hers.
More and more people realized that she’s a lemon.
David O’Halloran came clean for about 20 minutes, then soiled himself again while trying to replace Terry Bernardo with John Dawson.
As a result of the November 2013 election, Terry Bernardo will be carted away on January 1, 2014, with O’Halloran’s credibility in one of the trash bags.

Len Bernardo, soon to be the former Kingmaker of Ulster County, said in Freeman – after the final tally of the absentee ballots sealed his wife’s loss of the Legislator seat – that Terry Bernardo is going to be “hurt.” Excuse me, who wouldn’t be hurt losing $40,000 per year in salary and benefits, especially the much needed health insurance? Not to mention the loss of power and eventually having the Casino at Nevele go ahead without her “input” and the “rewards” coming her way.
Can’t wait to see, 15 minutes from now, how hurt is Madam Chair. Is she going to show up and occupy the huge chair the last before the last time? Or is she going to not be available for comment?
She got what and how she treated people she is now a “simpleton”….but with a bad reputation…ummm yup “KARMA!!!…Madam chair…you hurt people for way too long and now well how does it feel….hurts doesn’t it!!…thanks Terry….you have no idea what and how you have hurt others…really fooled a lot of people…but Len continues to bully and scheme and you should realize that was a big reason why you lost!!….plus never thought you could be so mean…ouch!
