Welsh was correct. Deal with the Oneidas was a no win situation.

Does Gordon believe the deal was a good idea?

Yeah, until someone tells him to do otherwise. Gordon was spineless last time around. "I was for it the first time but voted against it the 2nd time because I was waiting for the third time." We don't need his style of governing again. Stick with a proven legislator Ed Welsh. He is best for South Utica and all of Oneida County,

I'm pretty sure Gordon was a one man show with no puppets. He did introduce term limits didn't he? He was the only "no" vote against the 2013 budget wasn't he? He tried to reduce the leg to 19 didn't he? You must be very very confused.i

Gordon was a one man disaster. He was totally controlled by the criminal Tallarino. Gordon couldn't take a leak without his permission. I'm glad you at least acknowledge it was a "show." All show and no results. Gordon was a terrible legislator. We don't need or want him back.

Here is some history on his legislation to reduce the size of the OC Leg:

Gordon introduced legislation and then was against it since he did not understand the process. He has used this excuse on several occasions as he changes his mind or is influenced by others.

Bet you never gave it a second thought until you felt challenged. See what competition in the market of open ideas does.
This is what makes good, informed voters of Utica.

And seriously, when is it a claim to fame to be the only "no" vote. Doesn't that indicate someone out of step with their colleagues. There was bi-partisan support for a fiscal plan and every single legislator supported it except Gordon. That's called grandstanding and its nothing to be proud of. That is the kind of "accomplishment" Gordon wants to hang his hat on. I say no thanks.

Welsh says nobody told him how to fight this-because he never asked.
Sure he talked to a lot of people. Sure didn't talk to Judy Bachman of Citizens alliance.
