Congratulations to DuWayne Gregory on a resounding victory! Best wishes as you embark on your legislative career.

Shame on Jordan Wilson and Ricardo Montano for their underhanded sleaze tactics. The voters saw right through your self-serving chicanery to shame Wilson with a pathetic showing.

Now it's time to turn our attention to the 6th AD and helping Waldo Cabrera defeat Phil Ramos, Montano's other sleazy pal, in the September 9 primary..

Another example of the scam politics of suffolk county. This guy is party to a crime and they get him elected. He claims Mystels residence is not his business, so he turns his blind eye to Mystels crimes, what will he not see as our rep.

"The district covers a largely African-American swath of the county, reaching from Wheatley Heights to Amityville. It also includes Wyandanch, East Farmingdale and parts of Copiague."

"Gregory praised his volunteers and said he will focus on reducing gang violence in the district..."

Here we go again. Forgotten in the mix. We know where his focus will be.

"Gregory worked as Mystal's chief aide for the last year and previously held appointed jobs with Suffolk Off-Track Betting and Babylon Town. White and Wilson attacked him for Mystal's residency issue, but Gregory claimed it was none of his business where his boss resided."

Yeah and Clinton didn't inhale. Nice coverup DuWayne.

Gregory did not commit the crimes, Mystal did. Hopefully Gregory will do a better job than Mystal.

I am a white woman who lives in this "largely African-American swath of the county, reaching from Wheatley Heights to Amityville. It also includes Wyandanch, East Farmingdale and parts of Copiague." and I was appalled at Mr. White's discriminating tactics to try to win this election. He should be ashamed. I wouyld never vote for someone who is this racist!

Racist ?? What about a CRIMINAL who states he was OBLIVIOUS to his boss's whereabouts !

What did White say that was so wrong ?? By the outcome of this race obviously skin color had EVERYTHING to do with it ! Because NO ONE in their RIGHT MIND would vote for a SOME political HACK who has bounced from post to post MILKING THE SYSTEM and states knew NOTHING of his boss's whereabouts...PLLLLLLUUUUUEEEE EEEAAAAAASSSSSSSSEEEEEEEEE !

What difference does it make that Gregory claims he did not know his boss' living arrangements. It was not his place to prosecute the crime. Do you question your boss on their policies at your job? I bet not cause you could lose your job if you challenge the boss right???

Well, if he did know, that would make him a liar. I do question policies at my job. I do it in an appropriate manner that keeps me my job.
