Ok… Its official (at least to me) The ” was going to vote for Kaufman but I no longer can in good conscience….” poster is either Loncto himself, or a lackey since he’s been posting the same long diatribe multiple times.
Do you have it in a word document for easy cut and paste?
This type of dirty tricks/voter suppression tactics are enough to make me vote for Kaufman (aka “not Loncto”)………………………………………………
“I was going to vote for Kaufman but I no longer can in good conscience. He was totally unprepared for the debate, which showed disrespect for those who supported him, for the public at large and he was a poor example for children who may have been watching. Kids do your homework, it matters! I was impressed that LONCTO took the time to get facts and figures perfectly accurate by writing them down. Major political candidates do that. And at congressional hearings if you watch CSpan you see them reading facts and figures.
But what bothered me the most was Kaufman’s insistence that his having kids in the school system was important. Loncto’s wonderful answer to that was: All the children in the school system are my children. I care about all of them (not perfectly accurate quote; I didn’t write it down!). Kaufman’s insistence that kids of school age are a major qualification to serve on BOE revealed a person who is biased, prejudiced and discriminatory. A person who is likely to exclude rather than include people, certainly on the basis of age, possibly race and gender also. I don’t trust him. I am a senior citizen; I belong to Age Friendly Ridgewood and I am sensitive to age discrimination, called Ageism. Kaufman certainly demonstrated that prejudice. I have a relative, a renowned PHD CHILD psychologist who was never married and didn’t have children throughout most of her career. What she did have was knowledge, and empathy, and she was a human being. Human beings can remember childhood at any age. Human beings must not be put into categories that prevent them from actualizing themselves and contributing to our society because of age, race, gender or anything else. Kaufman may be able schmooze well at a coffee, but that doesn’t count for me.”
