It was not so much that Delgado did better than 2016 nominee Zephyr Teachout had but that Faso 2018 performed less well than Faso 2016 — an indicator of intense Democratic engagement in this year’s election.

We believe the best choice to represent us in Congress for the next two years is the Democratic challenger, Antonio Delgado.
Sheriff Paul VanBlarcum did the right thing by traveling to Washington DC and meeting with President Trump after a member of the Sheriff’s Department died during a training exercise, argues Mark Ingoglio of Kingston.
It comes down to empathy. To grope, try to undress and then cover the mouth of someone else to prevent that person from screaming for help indicates to me a dramatic lack of perception of the fear that person is feeling in that moment. That’s an empathy deficit of profound depth. While we all can grow out of many things, I don’t know if anyone can go from being like that to being able to get over the extraordinarily high bar to be on the Supreme Court.
This year, the MeToo movement has liberated Hudson Valley women from feeling alone.
“Players are not protesting the flag or the National Anthem,” writes a reader from Kingston. “If you would like the NFL to show respect for the flag, demand they take the flag off the uniforms, stop carrying the flag horizontally and, for goodness’ sake, get representations of the flag off of beer cans and cups at the stadiums. All of those things are against the U.S. Flag Code, but they happen every game day in the NFL.”
George Clinton (1739-1812), Peter Stuyvesant (c.1612-1672), and Henry Hudson (1570-1611) are familiar bronze figures gracing Academy Park in Kingston. How fitting that these three early statesmen are memorialized in the original capital of New York.
“If the NFL owners and players’ greed tempts them to dishonor our fallen, then the public has the right and responsibility to abandon them and their sponsors, and the players should be freed to choose whatever form of protest they select on the playing field,” writes a reader from Ulster Park.
John Faso and his Republican surrogates have attacked Antonio Delgado over his former occupation as a rapper, despite Faso himself having no rapping experience whatsoever. Not even a mixtape.
Okay, ladies and gentlemen, I am taking a stand. I will continue reading Eric Francis’ horoscopes. His horoscopes have always been the best and actually say something tangible and relevant and not vague. The whole me-too movement has turned into something akin to the Salem witch hunts, and it is fascinating and terrible to watch.
