Guy by the last name of Crook, comes out of nowhere, and upsets David D. How did this happen ? I guess this is just typical EA politics,

Sorry for your loss Dave, You were a good mayor for EA, someone with fresh ideas and approaches.

Sounds as if the voters of EA were disenchanted with Dave. Why would that be? What parties were the candidates, and what were their platforms? I'm not that familiar with EA politics.

The Village of Alden is in such great shape precisely because of the great job that the former Mayor did, in my opinion. The DPW guys held out for a sweetheart deal that the public would probably be shocked to know the details of. They were mad, and they and the Fire Department got one of their own elected. The new Mayor is a good man, but I hope he doesn't screw up the good situation the former Mayor left him.
same here in EA

Mayor DiPietro did a great job.

Don't know the new guy. We'll see. He just created some sort of tourism task force. Seems in his best interest, considering his wife owns a village store. Hope he focuses on more than the issues that concern local merchants and his family.

One complaint...he brought back the mayor that DiPietro beat, to work on some other new committee. Dumb move if you ask me. Campaing on change and then bring back the ideas that were defeated 8 years ago????

One particular trustee and about 300 other people did not like Dave's ambition. He has/had upward political potential. He was agressive with his fundraising. He received a few big donations from business that ended up providing costly services to the village. Keep in mind the contracts were bid and the buinesses were voted on by the trustees. Then there is this BIG ice rink that divided the village. Well...the location was in dispute. 2/3 want the ice rink close to main st. Dave wanted it away from mn st. Wanted a new fire station on the property, senior housing at the old fire station and the ice rink a hair outside the village. Obviosly Dave should have ditched the fire men and the seniors to save his own career.
