As reported in this week’s print edition, the Working Families Party has endorsed Steve Noble for mayor. Here’s a statement from Phillip Leber, the party’s Hudson regional political director, issued Friday afternoon:

“We are proud to endorse Steve Noble for Mayor of Kingston. We share Steve’s vision for a prosperous, vibrant Kingston that works for all of its residents. Steve is a progressive leader in his community and is committed to building a city that puts working families first through sustainable development, higher wages, and growth in green jobs. We look forward to supporting Steve through Election Day and working with him once he is in office.”

    A bunch of buzzwords, meaningless really. “Sustainable this, sustainable that.” And he would have had to pledge a lifelong commitment against Wal-Mart because of some exploited workers in Honduras or somewhere(as if any of this has meaning in the city of Kingston and its politics–or SHOULD). They’re mainly a bunch of nuts and crackpots, those WFP folks, and they have no meaning themselves other than piggybacking upon whoever the Democratic Party nominee is for any given office and then somehow “believing” this is meaningful. It’s just a mechanism for another ballot line, like the Governor’s “Women’s Equality Party.” The Green Party at least stands for something on its own and doesn’t footsie with the major parties like that.
    And if Steve dares shop at Wal-Mart–especially for clothes now— and you’re DONE with major elements of the WFP!!! Better name for it is “Working- Jerking Party”. If you’re not working to support ALL their extreme ideas, they will jerk you around. Well, welcome to politics, Steve, I hope it is a short lived welcome especially for the prospect of big fat drunk man being made a Deputy Mayor by you.
