With this email, Seb's interest for Middletown is his own best interest, filled with Mediocrity and personal politics; NOT putting "Middletown First" but attacks a Senior Councilperson, Joe Bibisi who served as his Deputy Mayor for his three terms faithfully.
now has set the stage for Joe
& I not to be re-nominated for this Fall's Republican Ticket!
I suggest that if he
is willing to do that and disregard personal friendships and commitments, what will he
do to our city residents when they don't happen to agree with his
has a track record of putting his
personal political bias over that of the council and the public; surely NOT putting "Middletown First!"
Knowing the political fate ahead, Joe
& I then made the decision, that we would not be controlled by politics and continued with our bold steps to shed a new light on our party from a confrontational approach, to continue to build upon positive relationships in city government; essentially putting "Middletown First"!
I immediately prefaced my interview that I was fully aware of the rumors which were circling City Hall about me and Joe
not being re-nominated and expressed my disappointment with our party.
I further noted, that we were going into a very important election and asked them the question for which they could not answer, why we would not put forth our strongest Council Slate, headed by Joe
& I who have been the top Republican vote getters, especially during a time when two of the Democratic Council members were retiring?
I know that Joe
& I did!
Thank you to all our supporters for the wonderful and heartwarming phone calls and emails, during this transition period for Joe
& I while we contemplate with our families of our future decisions!
