I guess Norm Green wants to go back to 25 districts after a referendum by the people.

How many cows head to the polls down there? Are the majority registered as Republicans or Democrats? Is there a black bear in the vicinity that has registered as an Independent?

Norm Green's record of voter obstruction is very public. Guess this is one more instance of his nefarious activities.

Green should never have been reappointed election commissioner. He is a total disgrace to the processes,but then again look at the number of Dems under indictment in New York.

Whitney, Coughlin and Cornell love Norm Green. Every crooked act he performs favors elected democrats.

It should be noted that Green's reappointment to the board of elections last year was approved unanimously by the full legislature. That means thirteen Republicans approved of him serving in that capacity as election commissioner. Just something to consider.

Luke, I could be wrong, but I believe that it is an unwritten law that the Republicans vote for the democrats choice and the democrats vote for the republicans choice. Brain Abram also was reappointed unanimously.

I didn't know that Kabob. But even with the unwritten rule, the opportunity has still presented itself for GOP to publicly voice disapproval with and even oust the current Democratic BOE commissioner via the legislature.

After Green's 2010 fiasco involving Goodell and the Independence Party, it was surprising to see his reappointment go as quietly as it did. Your mention of the unwritten rule helps to explain the process a little more clearly.

Green has had how long to look at the lines and only now he decides they won't work. Abram seems to not see the problem, nor does legal counsel ...so ...more political shenanigans from Green? Must be he's having a hard time getting enough Dem voters in those districts. Newsflash Mr. Green ...voter registration doesn't equal votes, especially with what's been going on. Even Democrats have had enough of political power-hungry Democrats like you. Give me a qualified candidate, that's all I ask for. Is that really so hard?

The republicans approved Green because they know he is no asset to the dems. They figure if they want him they can have him.
