Can we really blame Sager and Wilkinson?
Sullivan County legislator David Sager is not seeking reelection,and Steve Wilkinson has stepped down as Democratic County Chairman.
Both Sager and Wilkinson
brought something to the table we have not seen in a long time,honesty and openness.
They both lived by the philosophy of delivering good government.
did the impossible.
He became political chairman while working for an elected official.
quickly learned one cannot do both.
As a political boss he
needed to protect his
political base,but he
also needed to protect the elected official he
walked a tight rope.
And,let's not forget the unwarranted and appalling intimidation against Wilkinson
during the County Court Judge race.
The opposition was given a free ride while he
was put through the wringer.
During the nearly three years as chairman Wilkinson accomplished a lot.
indeed can keep his
head up high.
job takes him in new directions,I am certain he
will excel and always keep our interests at hand.
Thank you,David Sager and Steve Wilkinson
for jobs well served.
