Dump Carl Chipman

Let’s see… George Washington served 8 years (1789 – 1797)… Abraham Lincoln served 4 years (1861 – 1865)… Theodore Roosevelt served 8 years (1901 – 1909)… Harry S. Truman served 8 years (1945 – 1953)… Ronald Reagan served 8 years (1981 – 1989)…

2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015… Do you know of any reason why Town of Rochester Supervisor Carl Chipman should spend more than 8 years in office?

If you do, please share.

    Seriously now, Chipman has outlived his uselessness.

    Was he EVER not useless? Liar. Cheat. Puppet. Thief — all yes. Useful — Never. He’s got to GO!

    We can think of a few reasons why Chipman should go home after eight years. He is a great pretender and pretenders are successful in politics. He can feel your pain for as long as he needs to do that, then he stabs you in the back. He is a master manipulator, truly dangerous, a cut above those who show their true colors earlier in the game! During the last eight years he managed to trick all political parties in town, pretending to be on their side, without ever committing himself to their values and principles. He’s driven only by self-interest and nobody believes him when he says he works for the good of the town!

    A whole lot of nothing here except for small minded anonymous rants that put forth nothing in the way of facts. What lies? What criminality? What family members on the payroll; if true, was the position posted? If so, did anyone else apply? What are the examples of him “pretending to be on their side” vis-a-vis tricking all political parties. And, where have you been not to know how much time he has put in attending all sorts of meetings, like Association of Town meetings, the coalition of local townships dealing with UCRRA issues, Supervisors group which he chairs, dealing with the county over social service payments, etc etc. in order to understand exactly what the issues are and then work towards some solutions.

    Has he made mistakes? One for sure was not replying to the State re the ARC home placement on a dead end road in Kerhonkson making it clear that that location was not a good one.

    But, he has with just two initiatives (closing the transfer station a couple days per week and using that saved labor to work on other town related necessities, and by his sticking to the plan to make the owners of the Rainbow Diner live up to their responsibility to clean up their site via lawsuit) has saved the town around $310,000. Remember, the county would NOT have “made the town whole” re the cost of asbestos cleanup. The county would’ve only paid the taxes owed, not the clean up costs.

    He has worked to restore a balance between all parties living here. He has also worked incredibly hard at attempting to clean up the town in order to entice more people doing business here and maybe even relocating here.

    It’s so easy to complain, especially anonymously without any facts to substantiate the false charges.

    And, Jon, you know you are writing what you’re writing because of your anger that Manuela didn’t get the temporary Town Board position. You, as does she, believe she was the most qualified person for the position. However, another way of looking at it is this, Manuela had four years to demonstrate her ability to govern and not a single board member voted to have her on the board again. I think that says all that needs to be said. And, it had nothing whatsoever to do with her being a woman with an accent. I personally believe there’s a chance that the majority of the Town Board thought she does such a great job with the Youth Commission that they didn’t want her to leave that job. Just as they didn’t want another candidate to leave the ZBA position held as replacements are few and far between. The Fornino nod was more a process of elimination rather than one of confirmation of her abilities to govern.

    So, folks, let’s have some specifics. Name names. Give specific examples of corruption, lies, etc etc. And maybe it would help if you listed the qualifications of a supervisor that you would consider to be more to your liking. Again, name some one in town you feel would fill the bill. That should be VERY interesting for a contrast and compare analysis.

    Steven, Jon told me last year that he met with you and found you charming and amenable, I hold no such illusions; though I am glad to see you’ve finally matured to the point where you no longer feel it necessary to hide behind anonymous and false names as you had when you contemptibly attacked those you disagree with, but please show a little courtesy for those whose only crime is to follow in your footsteps.
    I am glad to see you disagree with you compadres about the board’s rejection of Manuela because of her accent, even though all those vile anonymous emails that Jon received and posted stated otherwise. You say: Manuela should not advance her career because she does such a great job with the youth commission. Why is that, is there a conflict of interest there, or do you think she does not have the capabilities to both sit on the town board and be on the youth commission at the same time?
    “The Fornino nod was more a process of elimination rather than one of confirmation of her abilities to govern.” Wow, with friends like you who needs enemies.

    Let’s have a little talk about Carl, I know little about all sorts of meetings and UCRRA issues and chairs that Carl sacrifices for and sits on and “etc, etc”. I do know the 3 or 4 measly salaries he cut at the dump cannot mean over a five grand a year saved; yet if that cut was to serve as a prototype to be magnified in Albany, or to cut the work week down for hundreds of thousands of useless Federal government employees who do nothing all day, then I’d say the garbage-dump workers suffrage was not in vain, but I know that is a false hypothesis among you inflated government advocate types.
    Sticking to the Rainbow Diner plan? You mean sticking it to the citizens of the town who had to drive past that disgusting site for two years and get a lesson on how poisons eventually seep into ground, how can you possibly call that leadership or being responsible, where is your green hat, did you leave that at home?
    I could go on about other disappointments with Carl but they deal with tolerance and sacrilege, I best leave that to Carl’s own Sunday musings.
