GREENWICH FIRST SELECTMAN PETER TESEI CRUSHES JOHN BLANKLEY IN LEAGUE Of WOMEN VOTERS DEBATE
There was a clear winner and loser in the Greenwich First Selectman debate, held at town hall.
Mr. Tesei answered every attack credibly, accomplishing what he needed to do.
Moreover, Mr. Tesei also gave the best performance. He made no major gaffes and successfully answered attacks from John Blankley. Mr. Blankley seemed sad as he looked down and just read from his prepared notes.
The One Trick Pony who got put out to pasture:
Political novice John Blankley was in trouble from the beginning rounds of the debate and things just got worse from there.
No better analogy fits John Blankley than the tired, old ride-pony that limps around the same corral all day whining about what he has read in the Greenwich Time that day.
Independents are not going to a whinny old mare like John Blankley. The First Selectman wanna be simply has no plan or solution for problems confronting Greenwich.
Best qualified: First Selectman Peter Tesei
If we have to have a Republican as our next First Selectman (and it looks like we probably do) Peter Tesei is the best of the lot. He’s an old school conservative who is still open to new ideas.
Mr. Tesei is the strongest on governing experience, the deepest on town department knowledge and the most compelling on cooperation.
It is no secret that First Selectman Peter Tesei and Greenwich Roundup have disagreed more than a few in the past, but overall almost everyone in town agrees that Mr. Tesei has done a good job during a very tough period.
The only problem, Mr. Tesei has is that he is too loyal to some people in his administration who need to be shown the door.
