This is classic Mooney at his best, for starters I was at the Flavor Cafe on 4th street in Troy with Mr. Greene when he was assisting Mike Russo for Senate and personally heard Mr. Greene tell Mike Stammel that "you have my full support with whatever you need, I'll run the Democrats for Mike Stammel campaign". Well now Mr. Greene wants the Democratic Chairman seat for Rensselaer county next year and when Mooney and his campaign manager behind the scenes put pressure on Mr. Greene he folded. Mike Stammel absolutely had Steve Greene's permission to send the fliers and Mr. Chuck Hall who was also standing there when this conversation happened heard the same that I did. Hopefully the body that elects Steve Greene Union President is all Democrats because if there are any Republicans that see the tatics Mr. Greene allowed the Mooney campaign to press on him they may not vote him in again. This is just classic Rensselaer Politics which the Mooney family is used to in fact his son whom is on the fire department was hired illegally by the current board of public safety because the civil service announcement stated under hiring qualifications "MUST be an EMT PRIOR to appointment" which his son was NOT in fact the city paid for him and paid him while he was at the fire academy getting his EMT and paid overtime to cover his shifts. This is easy to findout also just foil his hire date and the date his EMT card was issued and this will show how BAD Rensselaer Politics naming the mayor, city clerk, and other memebers of the board of public safety do things around here. Really Rensselaer Politics as a WHOLE should be changed!!!!!
