While Ulster County political blogs are abuzz over Susan Zimet’s Facebook page (above) about challenging the New York State Assemblyman Kevin A. Cahill, I have a question, and I will ask it in French: What the fuck is a State Assenbly?
“Don’t eat anything you can’t pronounce” goes the popular wisdom. How about “don’t run for anything you can’t spell?”

Do you have a link?
I have this page Terence,,,
It’s my understanding she will make the official announcement Monday.
The Queen of Darkness,,,
She is an absolute narcissist who is simply carrying out the wishes of Mike Hein. She can’t resist the attention even if it means public humiliation which is what is going to happen.
Is she confiding in you Carl? Why would you know this?
I’m President of the Ulster County Association of Town Supervisors and Village Mayors as well as a leader involved in many different areas on behalf our citizens and that puts me in the know on many things.I have worked with Susan Zimet on many different projects and also have worked work with Kevin Cahill on several issues. Candidates quite often try to harness support before going official and .she is no different than other candidates. It really hasn’t been much of a secret anyway especially since the State of the County where she was shown tremendous recognition by the Hein Administration.
I’m also a steering committee member along with Susan Zimet for Elected Officials to Protect New York. Both Susan and I participated in the press conference that was held in Albany on April 22nd at the Legislative Office Building.and our paths cross quite often.
Do you believe Hein is behind her campaign?
I can not wait to see the fools that will stand with this moron when she announces. Each and everyone will go on my do not vote for list. They are obviously f**king idiots like her! I am glad she is on the other side of the mountain. Zimet is the most repulsive politician I have ever met, both physically (those who have talked to her know what i mean —YUCK!) and in her personal manner.
There is no secret here, she is running. Zimet attended the “Elected Officials to Protect New York” meeting in Albany on April 22, where she tried to enlist the support of the Supervisors in 103rd NYS Assembly District for her challenging the incumbent Kevin Cahill. And don’t be surprised if she pops up on the Republican line, courtesy of Len Bernardo.
She almost lost to her Republican opponent in New Paltz! The most liberal of all towns nearly threw her out. She will lose her hometown to Cahill. What makes her think that the people of Kingston or Rochester are going to like her more?
This is ridiculous. Kevin Cahill will destroy her in each and every head to head challenge. She is a fool to go through with this. If she wants to end her elected career, this is the right approach.
Good Call! So far this has been true!
Well if she runs and elected maybe she will get the debris from the rainbow diner cleaned up.
It’s not government’s job to clean up private property! This should be settled by the court shortly with costs to be born by the owners and not the taxpayers
If my memory serves me correctly. The town cleaned up the old Bailey store on main st. Also has the town building inspector\ code enforcement sighted the location for the several zoning violations? If so it already should have been settled.
The wheels of justice move excruciatingly slow but we will have a decision very soon. The Barley Building situation was vastly different than the Rainbow in many ways. Most importantly. much less dollars to cover costs versus the value of the property and thus the Town’s Taxpayers were not at financial risk. . The cost for asbestos removal and clean-up as it is are very great for a third party at the Rainbow which exceeds the value of the property. Any shortly fall which could be as high as 3 times the value of the property would have to be born by the taxpayers. Enforcement of the violations which includes clean-up as cited by the building inspector can not be done at the municipal court level and thus it is being litigated at the state court level.
We tried to work with the owners to clean-up in the beginning and also tried to get the asbestos rules relaxed but to no avail. I will admit that I wasted a lot of time trying to get help relief for the owners and then trying get assistance from other government agencies.
