Today, Ulster County Executive Mike Hein issued a statement, advising that he would not be seeking New York’s 19th Congressional District office. He wants to remain county executive and not elevate to congressman.
Hein stated: “I am proud of the strong track record of innovation and transformational initiatives that we have achieved for the great people of Ulster County, partnering with Democrats and Republicans alike, and I am deeply appreciative of the overwhelming level of support and encouragement that I have received in the process.”
Although he specifically noted his “partnering” with both Democrats and Republicans, Hein, nonetheless, said the following in this same statement: “This is an important election and I look forward to working with our Democratic candidate to provide a strong voice in Washington for the great people of this entire district and I am confident that a Democrat will win this seat.”
It appears he’s more interested in partnering with Democrats, which makes sense because he is a Democrat.
Hein further blustered, “Although the pundits and politicians will undoubtedly speculate, the simple truth of my decision is this: after serious consideration I have decided not to run for Congress in 2016 because, although we have accomplished much, there is still a great deal of important work to be done. Ulster County is where my heart is.”
A few problems with his above diatribe: (1) His repetitive use of the word “although” is concerning; (2) His notion that “the pundits and politicians will undoubtedly speculate” is rather arrogant, if not a bit delusional. Surely, the Fox News, CNN, and MSNBC teams are sitting around conjecturing and debating why a rural New York State county executive chose not to run for congress – NOT!; and (3) Never end a sentence with the word “is.”
