Chris Bodkin is nothing more than a political **** who will switch to whatever side he feels will keep him on the public payroll.

Didn't Ms. Bergin just switch her party to the R because they would give her the nod....where is her loyalty to her beliefs and her party? can you republican puppet??? they will eat her up and spit her out. she will do whatever she is told to do; not stand up for her beliefs

Bergin is a fresh face, an intelligent woman who won the opportunity to run for town council because of the way that she represented herself.
We are happy to welcome her to the Republican Party.
Did she even screen for this or call in her polital favors? "D'Amato and King are backing me"

Yes, in fact, Morgo has worked in the private sector for nearly 18 years running the Long Island Housing Partnership. There you go.

It is kind of funny how the dems are waging this unfair attack against Bergin.
Dare I say that there is a bit of fear on the Dems side.
Bodkin the altimate puppet may have to explain what he has been doing for the last eighteen years or so!
Oh that's right its all about Ann Frank.
You Dems are praising Bodkin left and right, have you ever had a conversation with the man? He can not hold a thought in his head for longer than two minutes.

As far as Morgo has he ever had a private sector job? If so how many years in the private sector as opposed to his years in government as a political hack.
Is it true also that Morgo is leaving because he and Levy do not see eye to eye.

The Dems attempts to label her as a brainless bimbo will back fire on them, especially when the public is introduced to this very savy, intelligent and well educated woman.
The dems attacks on her are baseless, scandelous, and to be quite honest pathetic, and insulting.
As for Flotteran he is a ball of energy that makes the energizer bunny look like its batteries have worn down.He is everywhere, knows everyone and is working in his office night after night and when he is not in his office he is at community events talking about issues and most of all listening to the leaders of every community to help deliver the services that the people of Islip deserve. With Fltteran its about the people and the taxpayers of the town of Islip.
Flotteran is hated by pay to play Nolan because he is a thorn in Nolan's side and an impediment to the corruption Nolan is attempting to spread.
Let the election begin but stick to the issues and stop the personal attacks.
