Is this guy taking this position seriously?

WBNG TV reports:

If elected, he hopes to revive local parks and increase activities in the city.

"I want to have ethnic festivals every month," Hickey said."Whether it's a German fest, like an Oktoberfest, an Irish fest, an Italian fest, a Greek fest, a Middle Eastern fest or an Asian fest. I want the community to be represented as a whole. I want people to learn different cultures, different foods, different ways of life."

He also hopes to make Binghamton a city people move to, not away from.

Hickey's kids are ages 18, 15 and 2. He hopes his littlest, running around in a blue suit, will grow up in a better Binghamton.

"I want people to have a reason to come to Binghamton, from Endicott, from Johnson City, from Vestal. And I want those people to realize there's always something to do in Binghamton. We've got great restaurants, we've got great businesses."

IS THIS GUY FOR REAL? WHAT ABOUT THE REAL ISSUES IN THIS CITY ED? WHAT A JOKE! STOP WHILE YOU'RE AHEAD ED! Stick to what you know, weed, cocaine and whiskey.

Could you explain why...

You are against someone saying they want to "revive local parks and increase activities in the city"... and that they want to "make Binghamton a city people move to, not away from"... and they "want people to have a reason to come to Binghamton"... and they want their children to "grow up in a better Binghamton" ?

I mean really...

Those all sound like things a city and it's citizens should strive for - not against... so the only thing your post left me wondering is - why do you take such an opinionated exception to such goals for the city ?!

P.S. Lucky you I'm still up and doing paperwork and glancing at the forums at this god awful hour of the day... lol :)

Btw and yes...

No hard feelings but since I disagreed with your post... the single disagree "judgement" up there is from me...

I really am trying to understand your view though of what the city, it's leadership and it's citizens should strive for as things go forward...

When someone that is not a politician threatens 'the establishment' they will be attacked on a personal level. I watched all of the full-length interviews on news Channel 34.com and it seems to me I am the only one proposing ideas and changes for Binghamton. The Republican Party has hand-picked their candidate, forced them down the voters throats for the past two elections losing both. I believe it's now time for the constituents to pick the best candidate. I am obviously not getting your vote but I would suggest watching interviews and see who has the better ideas, see who has the better plans. The election process is a four month process, everybody's platforms will evolve.

The republicans have not yet confirmed a candidate, just stating they found one with the right qualifications thus far. One thing they most certainly will not do is support you. Why? In true form you are a puppet for Matthew Ryan. Therefore sending Binghamton into a downward spiral. If your heart was in the right place, maybe your interview would have been more appealing, but it wasn't. Seems coached by citizens action and our current train-wreck of a Mayor. Continuing his personal agenda is not a necessity for this broken city Mr.Hickey.

So the republicans think that someone who doesn't pay their bills and takes Obama stimulus money is the candidate with the "right qualifications"?

Everyone thinks they can run a city, especially when there’s alcohol involved! Apparently that’s what has prompted local bar manager Ed Hickey to run for Mayor.

Hickey is a close confidant of Mayor Ryan, and his campaign is being run by Citizen Action (the PAC who brought us Matt Ryan and Lea Webb).

This whole thing is pretty funny. He reminds me of the guy who ran for Governor on “The Rent Is Too Damn High Party”.

Matt Ryan has set the bar so low, that virtually anyone could seem like a viable candidate for Mayor!

Rich David is the best possible choice to lead Binghamton. Period!!!!

He has the experience and brains needed to undo the harm Ryan has done over the last 7 years....

Is Ed Hickey a Ryan puppet????? Odds are there is a good chance of that....

Even if that weren't the case, Hickey's campaign will do nothing other than make Rich David spend money unnecessarily. If Hickey really, wants to help Binghamton, he should get behind Rich David and support him!!!!

Anyone know what our lil proxy boy trying to accomplish here by jumping on and smearing one Republican candidate after another... that is except of course when he is talking about his personal choice for candidate...

Just a suggestion but...

Maybe someone from the powers that be in the local conservative base should give him a call again - and we all know who it is... and tell him he is making you folks look foolish and hurting everyone's reputation in the party... especially when people read his posts and think his actions / statements are representative of local Republicans as a whole...

So you think someone who owns a cash business, gets $271,000 in stimulus money and then can't pay his bills is the best possible choice to lead Binghamton because he has "the experience and brains"?

Either you trying to be funny or are you a complete and total moron.

Rennia, Drazen, and Hickey are jokes who might be a marginal improvement over Mayor Doofus...

Being marginally better than Ryan isn't going to help turn Binghamton around.

Rich David was deputy mayor under Bucci where he did an outstanding job. He is currently a successful businessman who understands the complex problems facing businesses in Binghamton. In fact, his business acumen will be an asset to small Binghamton businesses!

Yes, Rich David is easily the most qualified choice for Binghamton mayor.

Again...

The last time we saw someone being called a "Deputy Mayor" you went way over the edge... spamming one site after another saying there was no such title... and engaging in other behavior you are very well known for Arzouian i.e. calling anyone that corrected you a liar and much worse...

For example in another thread on this forum your original "rebuttal" was to claim:

"There's a difference between Tafreak calling himself the Deputy Mayor and a newspaper calling Rich David the Deputy Mayor...."

Your typical name calling of candidates, journalists, cyclists, other forum users and so forth aside... it was then pointed out to you that David is the one that actually calls himself "Deputy Mayor" on his own website...

At which point you then began talking about and to yourself for several days... leading us all to believe you were having a mental breakdown...

But anyway the question remains... your prior claim was that anyone that was identified as the Deputy Mayor was a liar and oh so much worse... and seeing as Rich David does just that - doesn't that now make him a liar etc. by your own standards ?

Rich David was deputy mayor under Bucci so that makes him qualified because as a member of Bucci's team we saw the foreclosure of the Regency, the depletion the general fund almost entirely, the shoddy construction of phase three of the sewage treatment plant, etc. etc.
Then Rich David became a business owner who owns a cash business, gets $271,000 in stimulus money and then can't pay his bills and you think he is 'easily the most qualified choice for Binghamton mayor'.
I'll ask you one more time Ed Arzouian and I'll throw in a third choice - Are you trying to be funny, are you a complete and total moron or are you insane?

I'm not sure why you are replying to Ed.

It was not I who has had issues with people using the title, "Deputy mayor."

I'm not sure Ed has had an issue with it either....

Perhaps you can point to one of Ed's posts were he said there was no such title as deputy mayor????

Please be sure that it is an actual post by Ed, and not some innocent poster who, in your distorted mind, you think is Ed....

Just because you jump on one id after another - usually getting caught eventually "Fausto Coppied", "WordWarriorNY", "LewisQuarrel", "Marcellus Shale" and so on and so forth... everyone knows who you are and when you're posting...

Even when you don't outright slip up and expose yourself... and even when you don't start using phrases and terminology pretty darn specific to you Arzouian - like you've done under this newest "Webb" id of yours... all we have to do is look for the person making the most vile and outrageous accusations aimed at others...

All I can say is you're a loon... and trust me when I tell you this - the conservative powers that be in your area - most of them think the same AND they really don't appreciate your little contributions or the harm you do trying to "help" them.

As far as I know, the local Republicans like Ed. They seem to listen to him and take his contributions with no problems. There's even some pictures of Ed with some very prominent local Republicans on the internet....
This seems to be a stark contrast to Mikey's pathetic lies about Ed being shunned by them!!!!
Wow - you really are clueless...

The deal is that they have seen your behavior in real life and on the various forums... they are also painfully aware now of your past history... and are concerned that they - especially if they're actively campaigning - will become one of the targets for your disgusting antics... including the possibility of having to potentially call the authorities on you and their campaign getting dragged thru the mud as a result...

So they smile at you... when you force yourself upon them - they'll talk to you and try to make their exit especially when you start ranting... but trust me - what they really want to see is your *ss end going in the other direction...

Yes - THAT has actually been said to me by some of your "friends" in local conservative circles... with the joke being them telling me thank you for keeping you occupied ( thanks guys ) and them out of the crosshairs...

If you still don't get it...

This is the same sort of thing that happened to you with the cycling community... where they made you the butt of an April fools joke... and then listed your in a blurb about a retirement party as the "entertaining Ed Arzouian" which you deluded yourself into believing was a compliment...

LOL !!!

Now Mikey from Elmira wants us to believe he hob-knobs with Binghamton Republicans!
He also wants us to believe that they talk about Ed instead of the issues!!!
What a load of CR*P!!!!!
All his posts are short on specifics and long on imagination....
I guess that's what happens when one obsesses about Ed day and night!!
It looks like that past drug / cocaine use of your has done something to your memory Arzouian... because you've been told before that for several of them - the initial contact was through messaging etc. from the Gannett systems...

That is - after you began jumping on with your various ids to threaten me and such because you believe there are conspiracies against you that I was in charge of - your words - not mine... they apologized about your behavior and told me that you were NOT representative of the core Republican / conservative values of the area... and a couple of them posted similar statements on the forum itself...

From there...

I have kept in contact with several of them... and we have discussed a number of topics... including the even popular - oh cr*p - Arzouian is at it again when you start your little attack routines online...

Now I know there is no way to break this delusion of yours... I mean after all - you have a picture of you with a plate of food trying to corner Libous that you posted on the Internet... and that most definitely proves what good friends you are...

LOL !!!

Repeat from another thread - this is the correct thread this time around... lol !

So you've offered no proof about your claim that Ed said there was no such position as Deputy Mayor....
Oh and by the way...

It's already been pointed out how you slipped up and we discovered you were behind the Marcellus Shale id Arzouian... over on the Gannett forums... and then you jumped here and elsewhere including BCVoice...

So from BCVoice as Marcellus Shale:

"So on Tarik Abdelazim's campaign web site we see he is engaging in self-aggrandizement, not to say actually lying.

Abdelazim wants to tell us he was "Deputy Mayor" of Binghamton???

That will come as a surprise to most Binghamtonians because in the City of Binghamton there is no such position."

Etc. etc. etc.... and just 1 of many copies making similarly erroneous claims and calling him and others liars...

Of course...

Now I guess you'll say it must have been someone you lent your id to that posted that over there and elsewhere... kind of like the routine you tried to claim when the authorities were called concerning the threatening email I received that you initially took credit for under your WordWarriorNY id...

What a whackjob Mikey from Elmira is!!!!
He wants us to believe this area's Republicans are friendly with him and he emails them all the time!!!!
Instead he is probably going to their websites and fills out their contact form... When he gets an auto response, he thinks they replied to him!
This area's leaders have more important things to do than to listen to the whines from Mikey from Elmira!!!!
Considering all that transference of yours in that post you made... it looks like I hit on a really raw nerve there Arzouian...

With that in mind then maybe you aren't completely beyond redemption... because it seems as though at least at some level - you do realize that your behavior on the forums and in many cases real life - is pretty darn universally despised... and if you do realize that then there is always hope you'll get the help you need to get your head screwed on right...

If that's the route you decide to pursue - and imho it would be for the best - then good luck with your treatment !

Would you just STFU? Who the HELL cares what you think about a city you don't even live in? Do something the ghetto you live in.
