General Election Thread
« on: September 18, 2010, 11:21:05 AM »
What are people thinking about the November elections?

What races are getting you interested?  The Gubernatorial race?  (Cuomo, Palladino, Lazio, Barron, Redlich, Davis, Hawkins, Cohn - that could be a wild debate depending on who they invite).

US Senate - the seat held by Chuck Schumer (6 year term) (Schumer, Townsend)

US Senate - the seat held by Kirsten Gillibrand (last 2 years of Hillary Clinton's 6 year term) (Gillibrand, DioGuardi)

Attorney General (Schneiderman, Donovan)

Comptroller (DiNapoli, Wilson)

Commercials are already starting up - I hope some of them come through Astoria to campaign.

I like Palladino, and calling him racist is sleazy move.    Plus he is unintentionaly funny, so Saturday Night Live can have some good sketches again.     

He has good plans, and his beliefs I disagree strongly with, like abortion (No, even if rape) won't pass anyway.     His prison reform is good idea, but needs some adjustments.

Natural Gas, Joey.  Google "fracking" and you'll see it calls for breaking thru layers of rock using water pressure.  Too bad these locations are at the same aquifer we obtain our water from.  Water becomse toxic, and in some instances down right flamable.

I am not aware of it. Can the drilling be drilling be done without polluting water?

I will be shocked if the US Senate changes party control.
Locally, I expect Nov will bring us the expected faces. Maybe there could be a few surprises at the statewide level.

Natl one imaginary prediction is that the House could go from a 257 Dem majority to a 207 Dem minority.  :-o !!  That would be incredible.
Be careful what you wish for. Trying to see what would be meaningful changes.
I expect any 'energy policy' would be drastic swing. I think immigration reform would be a tough debate.

The GOP pocket pledge seems rather familiar and they need to answer why they did not enact it 10 years ago.
Will believe Change when actions can be verified. I think even Dems could enact nearly 50% of the pledge if they wanted.

Any Democrats planning to vote in Nov?

I think he was running for senate (state) i think he said he is a rep now but going for this new place. What do people think of him? I liked him, he actually talked to me about the problems in albany.  I also forgot to write that he did some truck thing in the paper today which i liked

Depending on where you live in Astoria you'd have the following representatives:

Congresswoman Carolyn Maloney (being opposed by Ryan Brumberg)
NYS Senator George Onorato (Assemblymember Michael Gianaris is seeking his seat, and I think he has a Republican opponent, but Mike is the favorite in the race)
NYS Assemblymember Michael Gianaris (Democratic candidate is Aravella Simotas, not sure if the Republicans have a candidate) - Northern Astoria, mainly North of 30th Avenue
NYS Assemblymember Marge Markey (South of Broadway and parts between 30th Avenue and Broadway in the mid 30s Streets).
NYS Assemblymember Cathy Nolan (East of Crescent predominately, along the river up to Astoria Houses)
NYC Councilmember Peter Vallone, Jr. (most of Astoria)
NYC Councilmember Jimmy Van Bramer (South of 34th Avenue)

Welcome CA.
McD can clue you in on many things and you might want to check out the Dem clubs.


The Assembly race is an open seat this election, considered filled.
Most officials here are Dem and win by wide margins. As to whether folks actually like them ...
I imagine Gianaris is well respected for a number of reasons.


One question for NYS is will there be any change of leader in the state senate?  I hope yes.
[If I were to vote Dem this year, Gianaris would likely be the one vote.]

Thanks TRX.  I love trying to stay involved and I would love to get active. Astorias representatives are getting younger which is exciting. Gianaris (i spelled it right!) and this simotas woman and I think Vallone is young too. Should i stop by their offices, or is that frowned upon? I would love to offer to volunteer.

Andrew Cuomo and Charles Schumer to debate before the Nov. 2 elections.

So far, Cuomo hasn't accepted a governor's race debate and Schumer hasn't agreed to a debate in the contest for his U.S. Senate seat.

One of my friends dragged me to the local democratic club meeting tonight. I forgot the name but have seen it here before. It was great.  Gianaris, Vallone and Simotas all spoke.  They are all great!  I am going to start helping Gianaris out in his campaign, I got to talk to him briefly. So happy that i went!

I appreciate that Cuomo has stepped up for this. Interesting that he is currently favored by a small majority of indies.

Mr. Cuomo, the Democratic nominee for governor, and Mr. Paladino, his Republican opponent, each announced on Thursday that he had accepted an invitation to a debate on Oct. 18 at Hofstra University.

The debate will also include five other candidates for governor who are on the ballot next month, including Kristin Davis, the former madam running on the line of the Anti-Prohibition Party, and Charles Barron, the Brooklyn city councilman running on the Freedom Party line.

The others are Howie Hawkins, on the Green Party line; Warren Redlich, the Libertarian Party candidate; and Jimmy McMillan, the candidate of the Rent Is Too Damn High Party.

The debate will be co-hosted by News 12 Networks and Newsday. It will be shown only on cable.



I think some of the candidates may impress more than expected. Including Redlich. And Howie Hawkins has gotten some praise from journalists.

LWV NY has some information for voters about the election and the candidates.
Many candidates provided answers. A bit disappointed by a few campaigns that did not meet their request.

I live near a building called the Taminent? I saw a bunch of activity during the summer and see people going in and out of there. I think Simotas, Maloney and Gianaris were around there because they had signs on the door. Is this like your group? I like Maloney and Gianaris and Simotas seems like she is the candidate that is up and coming.

Taminent is very similar to Powhatan - they're both regular Democratic clubs (meaning affiliated with the Queens Democratic County Organization and have District Leaders affiliated with the club).  All three campaigns were based out of Taminent this year (our water was broken for a few months, so we didn't host anyone lamentably).  They're great folks.

Just curious, but for the 2008 elections someone posted a candidate finder site that had links to all the candidates and a fairly basic rundown of their stance on most / all of the main electorate talking points.  I was wondering if such a think existed for this go-round. I don't want to just blindly vote for Kristen Davis, because she would try to make it easier for me to walk to the bodega for 1/8 of sticky icky, but I'd also like to know where she stands on broader statewide issues. If anyone has such a resource, I would wholeheartedly appreciate it.

I just took another look at the smart voter site, and gave it the 5 minutes of attention it needed to actually see who is on my ballot (and another 5 to realize that I wish Kristen Davis' platform was being presented in a respectable fashion). All I can do is take a line from the Who "Meet the new boss. Same as the old boss."

I think the ballot will not be an issue for most voters. However, some of the lines may show candidates from more than one party. Be careful to only vote for one candidate for each race as appropriate.

If you find an error message when scan voting, feel free to ask for help.

It may be theater, but seems to me historical.
The House has declared unwar or no ground troops in Libya. To be seen if this makes any difference.
A stronger resolution failed but with meaningful minority support from both parties.
 
Perhaps out of respect for the Commander in Chief and the military concerns in Libya, Rep. Maloney appears pro-war in this case.
