Morgo is the liberal elite who wants to puff up his pension with an elected officials salary. He spends his time at the beach and elite southshore clubs.
He feels your pain as long as he's on the public payroll.
How much of his own time has he spent doing community service ZERO.
he has always been on payroll.
How much of his own money has been donated to charities ????
Oh that dosen't curry political favor but donations to Suffolk Democratic boys is self serving.
Check his financial disclousures
Go Fritz & Jacobs

Does Morgo realize that the Islip town council does not have district offices?
Fritz and Jacobs were put up to running a sour grapes campaign by Islip Town Democratic Chair Ivan Young who resents Phil Nolan's highhandedness vis a vis the town party. The town committeemembers dislike both Nolan and Young. Both are arrogant incompetents.
Morgo has always been a man of ideas. I'm hoping he uses the town councilseat as a springboard to the supervisor's seat. Bodkin, on the other hand, is a dim bulb who lacks an ideology.
Fritz and Jacobs are opportunists. Jacobs has no stature in Brentwood or Central Islip and Joe Fritz is a laughingstock. The pair petitioned only in Brentwood using the team that helped Fritz lose his seat on the Brentwood school board.
I'm supporting Morgo and Republican Trish Bergin. Teamed with Parrington, they have the skills and contacts to get things done and push Edwards from his complacent lockstep with Nolan.

Fritz and Jacobs are certainly onto something!
Bodkin, the ultimate flip-flopper having hid behind McGowans and now Nolan's skirts finally is getting called out on his issue of fame-3 term limits for Councilmen other than his own self-serving grandfather clause which exempted HIMSELF and allows him to turn his back on Republicans and insult the intelligence of Democrats. Now it's time to give him what he wanted so much-Term Limits-but done in voter style! It is just a shame that the Democrats will get the first crack at sending him to Palookaville, but never you mind if they don't put him and Morgo out all the voters will in November.
Speaking about Morgo-the quintessential political insider who has lived off the taxpayer his whole life and after building affordable housing in everybody elses' part of the town but where he and his sunning mate Flipper (along with the 3 other old white Council Members) live-south of Montauk; now he claims that he will go and help those people-how very wise of him.
As a refresher, the GOP always spread their Council Members all through the town, north, south, east and west. With the way things are going in Mr. Nolan's party and after raising property taxes in 2009 after promising they wouldn't-serves them right to be challenged by those people that they have long ignored.
Nolan's puppets couldn't find Central Islip with with the finest US Geological Survey's satelite global positioning systems!

Seriously, Joe, with or without GPS who thefuck wants to find Central Islip?
Your "ethnic" candidate Alonzo Jacobs lives south of Montauk highway in lilywhite East Islip. He's not doing anything to integrate that community. And Joe Fritz is busy claiming that (despite the bad leprechaun-hair dye job) he is black because he went to Howard University.
Brentwood and Central Islip were redistricted so minorities could get elected to both the Assembly and the Legislature and look what happened. Two affirmative-action do nothings, Phil Ramos and Ricardo Montano. Their constituents have no real representation. These jerks go unchallenged because to run against them brings charges of racism and classism. Suchbullshit! Now Montano is running around endorsing Fritz.
Let's address the real issues facing Islip Town and stop the nonsense being fomented Joe Fritz, Alonzo Jacobs, Ivan Young and Ricardo Montano.
Islip needs intelligent, farsighted representation.

And The Real Candidates For Islip Town Council Are...
Steve Flotteron and Trish Bergin...both are running on the Republican and Conservative Party Lines...Bergin will most likely have the Independence Party Line and Flotteron may also...
Flotteron and Bergin both come from the private sector and are not political insiders...Both have the work ethic and integrity needed for the job...
Flotteron has proven time and again over the last four years that he is a representative of all communities in Islip...He has worked his tail off helping constituents and civic groups in every part of the Town Of Islip...He has earned your vote for re-election...
Bergin has years of experience as an investigative reporter for Channel 12, CBS and other news organizations and is a tireless worker...Bergin will represent the citizens of Islip and not be in the pocket of special interest groups...Bergin also brings a fresh new face to Islip Government...
Bodkin and Morgo seem more interested in padding their bloated government pensions at the taxpayers expense...both have just been in government too long...
Fritz and Jacobs and other residents of Islip are unhappy and disappointed with the democrat administration in Islip...Too many newly created political patronage jobs for democrat cronies...and power concentrated among a select few inner circle political insiders in the democrat party...But there is more to being a town councilman than representing one section of the town...
As we all recall...when the Republicans were running Islip we had a council members from West Islip (Ferruggiari), Central Islip (Greene), Holbrook (Rowley) and Sayville...The Town Clerk Joan Johnson was from Central Islip...Senator Caesar Trunzo was from Brentwood...The Town Tax Receiver (Allen) was from Sayville...
The Choice Is Clear...
Steve Flotteron and Trish Bergin For Islip Town Council in November 2009...

I'm white and live in Central Islip.
Trust me, if it isn't generating revenue for Islip and their buddies, it doesn't get attention from the Township.
The various towns in the Township are NOT anywhere near equally represented.
Islip decided a long time ago that Central Islip and Brentwood would be used to "house" non-whites.
They also decided that Bayshore should not be wasted on those without wealth and have been systematically trying to convert Bayshore into something more "prosperous".
People in Central Islip and Brentwood are both literally and figuratively dying because the town has not done enough to keep progress going in these communities.
Forcing all the affordable housing and social services into these two towns isn't making them better, its making them worse.
The town needs to force affordable developments into all the towns of the township. By placing all of the affordable housing in these very few towns, they have only managed to supress real estate appreciation and further depress these towns.
New voices are never a bad thing.
- Never vote for an incumbent
- Never vote for one issue candidates and,
- Never vote without thinking first.

how are Fritz and Alonzo on pedophiles?
is Fritz using the "queen" math teacher who spammed for his losing schoolboard campaign on the town council campaign?
#8 Jul 15, 2009
The reason CI, Brentwood and Bay Shore are underrepresented is because they haven't housed an American citizen with the right to be represented in quite a long time.

John Schettino might tell us what the gop promised the big Cs to get the line for Floteron and Bergin. Walsh doesn't give the line away. So much for the no deal new gop on third avenue. The line will do no good. The Cs in Islip won't buy this investigative reporter bs, she is an opportunist looking to advance herself on the taxpayers wallet. Keep selling your 3rd avenue crap...every blog helps your opposition

The real problem is the fact that honest elections aren't occuring. ACORN, anybody? The real facts are:
1) Elections are handled by private companies.
2) The Freedom of Information Act is being rewritten, right now.
3) With the unspoken refusal to build a fence on our southern border, our government is allowing our population to swell with huge numbers of undesirables making a bums rush on America.
4) With the unknown numbers swelling our ranks, the government has a way to hide and move money where it sees fit,and enjoys the disarray as a way to be unaccountable.
5) The government is tighteneing up it's own security so that it has powerful fortresses from which to act against us when we revolt.
6) And where is Obama? Why he's in Africa, getting in touch with his roots, flying over there on our money, while the money that you and I have put in all of our lives is lost. We won't get our social security, but Obama will get his trips in, as will all the rest of them, too.
In summary, they are using our money for things that don't help us. We are the dirt for the trees to grow in. That is how the government uses us.

Best of luck to Joseph Fritz. He is a man of his word and he cares about the community.
He is an excellent attorney, good family man.
Sadly, his brother was killed in Viet Nam.
I wish I had a guy like him up in Brookhaven.
#12 Jul 15, 2009
We need someone like Steve Levy to lead the charge in Islip...
#13 Jul 15, 2009
No doubt on that. The majority living there are illegal aliens and non voters.
#14 Jul 16, 2009
Joe Fritz is a hack realestate lawyer who is lucky he isn't in jail over the phony mortgages he arranges. He is being used by Islip's drunkdriving Dem chair in his bid to prop up do-nothing legislator Ric Montano.

it's no coincidence that the big brawl occured down the street from the math teacher's house where all the pubescent boys hang out.
#16 Jul 16, 2009
Hey, Jimmy Crack Head..... GoFY!
I hope one of the people you are constantly complaining about places a bullet into that pitful, insignificant, hateful "heart" of you and yours.
#17 Jul 16, 2009
Die a horrible, painful, lingering death sc-um-bag.
#18 Jul 16, 2009
Your hateful spew is rediculous already. Would you just die already?
#19 Jul 16, 2009
Who's being hateful aside from you? As I see it, you're the one screaming for everyone to die. All we want is our nation to be free from freeloading illegal aliens who abuse our social services.
