Martin Sokol’s ad hominem attack on me is typical of most right-wing blowhards: He uses innuendo, ignores the facts and changes the subject. He knows nothing of the issues I wrote about in describing the Great Neck mayor’s deficiencies. I have attended dozens of meetings of the village, zoning and planning boards for more than 15 years. I don’t believe he has ever been in Village Hall.
We are not acquainted.
Moreover, given his contributions of $3,450 since 2004 to Republican candidates such as George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Scott Brown and Paul Ryan as well as to the Republican National Committee, plus an additional $500 to his sanctimonious Orthodox friend Joe Lieberman, I presume he and the mayor are waiting for their invitation to the White House!
Library patrons and taxpayers might also recall the highlight of his presidency of that institution was his spending on lavish executive tables and chairs for the Library Board’s exclusive use. The public be damned.
Sokol’s attitude is typical of what this community has become. I fear the worst.
