Trimarco is nothing more than a rear end kisser for the Ellis/Vecchio Smithtown Republican party. That useless wannabee made a political showing at a hearing about the flooding in town and then beat feet before the second part of the hearings - the part where he might have actually had to make intelligent statements about the problem. On the other hand, Mr Kennedy (and Mrs Gray) stayed to answer questions and propose solutions. Trimarco is nothing more than a shill for Ellis and company. There is no way this guy deserves to be elected to the Legislature. Mr Kennedy has done a very good job, so good in fact that his low life opponents must use twisted and fabricated logic to try and unseat him. Shame on them.

How clever, attributing Mr. Kennedy"s quote to Mr. Trimarco..... Watch the Cernitz' tape of the League of Women voters debate and judge for yourselves. Honesty and actions are the best defense. Still wondering how you folks sleep at night! Better go to confession!!! Have a good day!!!

WOWWW.. Please take a deep breath and calm down. Why are you so heated? You sound absolutely ridiculous. Anyone who is really connected to this election knows exactly who you are... haha.. Come on. Notice how I am using less sophisticated wordage, to better inform you with. Youíre an undereducated idiot who has something else coming... There will be good in the end though, because I know when Trimarco succeeds, both D's and R's will be satisfied. Heís not out there to hurt one side, heís out there to help us. Give the guy a chance, Kennedy is a jerk anyhow and Trimarco is our big guy. Vote for T.

Iím all for Trimarco. I have been a neighbor of his for over 25 years. He is a wonderful person, always happy lending as much or as little when a someones in need. He passes by my house daily and in snow storms he will shovel and salt my walk (I guess thatís his way of saying "I know you're getting old," without really saying it). Trimarco has been an active member of our community since he as a little boy and I can remember him playing with my children years ago. Always ahead of his time and very responsible. It doesnt surprise me in the least that he is running for county legislator. Everyone in my area is voting for him and we are proud of it. Lets keep our fingers crossed and hope he makes it through, we need a strong leader.

Kennedy is a hypocrite and a fake. After her years of service to his predecesor Andrew Crecca, legislative aide Priscilla Smith worked hard for Kennedy for years. After Kennedy's own actions and lack of communication turned the Republican organization against him, Kennedy made her life miserable, verbally abused her, and ultimately tried to fire her two weeks before her retirement! No person from any party deserves to be mistreated like Kennedy mistreated her.
For two years he completely misused all his staff, refused to meet with responsible community organizations, and walked around basically telling people he hated the job. Then, because his deal to return to the county clerk's office didn't work out, he starts blaming his faults on the same party leaders who were bending over backwards to help him.
He told Hauppauge folks they were too affluent to need his help, Nesconset was "downtrodden." What an insult to both communities.
Then he hires Ali Nazir, and defends that Nazir is a Democrat. Turns out that brilliant legal mind Kennedy doesn't know enough law to know non-citizems cannot vote! Now he's still defending Nazir's own false filings of election forms!
Even more, Kennedy then cuts a deal with the Democrats! What a joke of a Republican.
Kenney was dumped? He deserved it.

The September 6th Debate was a good vehicle for all to see the two candidates, Kennedy & Trimarco.

Trimarco continues his negative campaigning because that is all he has. Legislator John M. Kennedy, Jr. chooses not to use negative advertising and campaigning against his opponent, although he truly could, since his belief is to let his hard work and experience speak for itself, as well as, being a gentleman of the highest character.

With his only positive platform in his mailed literature, Mr. Trimarco, when asked about his plan to reduce taxes, indicated that he would try to get rid of some County vehicles, etc. Most of the rest of their debate was him agreeing to what Kennedy said, from experience.

Mr. Kennedy has helped keep the Suffolk County Budget in line for the County and his constituents for the past three years, works tirelessly at the Groundwater and Iroquois Natural Gas Pipeline issues that protects the community and keep it safe. He is very involved with coordinating neighborhood watches, being a dedicated partner with the local civics and preserving our Suffolk County land as needed.

He has strong roots to his legislative district, owning his home there for over 30 years, married to his wife for 32 years with four children.

To sum up, Legislator John M. Kennedy, Jr. is a man of integrity, proven experience and committed to work hard for his constituents.

Do you suppose we will have increased press coverage of this yawn when the election is less than a year in the future?
