STATEMENT FROM CHAIRMAN LANGWORTHY REGARDING THE APPOINTMENT OF AN ERIE COUNTY COMPTROLLER
For Immediate Release:
Buffalo, NY: - Today, Erie County Republican Chairman Nicholas A. Langworthy issued the following statement regarding the appointment of David Shenk as Erie County Comptroller:
“Culminating a hyper-political process, the Democratic Conference of the Erie County Legislature today appointed the least-qualified candidate under consideration to the office of Erie County Comptroller. Erie County is the equivalent of a billion-dollar enterprise. Taxpayers have been done a great disservice by the appointment of David Shenk, who lacks the qualifications to serve as Erie County's Chief Financial Officer. Candidates with better credentials were passed over due to the will of Party Politics and the over-reaching of Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz.”
“The Erie County Republican Committee has launched a screening committee to identify its candidate to run in the 2012 special election for County Comptroller. Interested candidates should mail a cover letter and resume to Erie County Republican Headquarters at 715 Main Street, Suite 102, Buffalo, NY 14203. Materials can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Gee, ya think? Democrats appointing Democrats? Who ever heard of such a thing?
What I really want to know is, when did Nick Langworthy change his name to Nicholas A. Langworthy? He sounds like a lawyer now.
More to come, I'm sure ...
