Kryzan on Working Families Party Line

31 Oct

From a Kryzan campaign press release:

Court Rules Kryzan Name Must be Put on Ballot

Amherst, NY — Last night, the New York Supreme Court Appellate Division, Third Department ruled that Alice Kryzan’s name must appear on the ballot next Tuesday as the nominee of both the Working Families Party and the Democratic Party.

The court ruling makes official what has been the case for several months: Alice Kryzan is the Working Families Party candidate in this election. Alice received the endorsement of the Working Families Party, Jon Powers, the Buffalo News and the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle.

“Alice is proud to have the support of the Working Families Party, of Jon Powers, and of voters across this district who want a new direction for Western New York’s economy,” said spokesperson Anne Wadsworth. “Despite Chris Lee and the Republican machine’s attempts to block Alice’s name from appearing on the Working Families Party ballot line, today’s ruling will allow voters to have a clear choice when they vote on Tuesday.”

    Sad. What about all the absentees that were already filled out?

  2. wizards cousin mizard October 31, 2008 at 11:19 am #

    sad, very sad. i will not be voting for that seat, because neither Kryzan or Lee deserve my vote.

  3. The Wizard Jr October 31, 2008 at 11:40 am #

    I bet he still appears. There is still chance for appeal to the Court of Appeals and the ballots are already printed.

    I’m pulling the lever for her with my eyes closed, she really doesn’t have a chance in the deepest fissures of Hell anyway but she is remarkably better than some unemployed do-nothing trust fund heir.

    Seriously – what a logisitical nightmare for the BOE. I would think the machines are ready to go and absentee ballots are printed and maybe – eeks – mailed!

  6. scott rrytlewski October 31, 2008 at 1:13 pm #

    a huge wast of money the labor in tensive job will run in the thousands

    and what are they going to do with absentee ballots already in not count there vote

    just recieved a robo call telling me that powers has drop out of the race

    why jon just didnt lose like a man and get out after the primary, know one will ever know all he did by this last stunt was cost tax payers money and make more money for the campagn lobbist oh i forgot that what he is

    why eles would he make the grandstand apperance on monday and have his con mans face on a mailing

    hopefully we seen the last of powers this time

  7. Jon Powers October 31, 2008 at 1:25 pm #

    Wow Scott. Thanks for the great support! Good Luck in Orleans County.

  8. Daniel Jones October 31, 2008 at 1:29 pm #

    Cranky much Scott?

  9. The Wizard October 31, 2008 at 1:33 pm #

    Scott Rytlewski, you are a piece of shit. Honestly. In 2010, I better see you running your own candidate for Congress and we will see how well you do.

  10. Robert Harding October 31, 2008 at 1:38 pm #

    Scott,

    The courts got this right. You act as if “thousands” is a huge amount. For each county, if you look at their budgets, that kind of money is a very small percentage of the overall budget. It’s worth it. They got it right. If Lee can get handed the IP line, Alice should be able to get on the WFP line.

    So why are you mad Scott? Because you voted for Powers on the WFP when you submitted your absentee ballot? I sense that’s the real reason for your troubles.

  11. wizards cousin mizard October 31, 2008 at 2:21 pm #

    Scott… if you’re so upset about it stand up and do something….

    oh sorry that was an expression not a suggestion…

  12. The Wizard October 31, 2008 at 3:01 pm #

    Harding – I noticed on your blog post at TAP that you are simply writing off the absentee and miliatry ballots because “in reality the most votes come via voters on Election Day who go to the polls”. I believe that all votes should be counted and this is a problem if people voted for Powers and now he is off the ballot, especially military folks. What if the Alice/Lee race is so close it goes to absentee ballot counts? Not so insignificant anymore.

    If roles were reversed, I think you would be whistling a different tune.

  13. Russell October 31, 2008 at 3:23 pm #

    Wizard, no one with any sense really expects the Lee/Kryzan race to be close.

    I think it’s pretty clear that all of this could have been avoided if Jonny just took care of business promptly and in a gentlemanly fashion. Waiting a couple days to concede was just a part of it. Waiting many, many more days to finally bow out and to eventually endorse Alice created the logistical and judicial nightmare now playing out. Even the first judge stated that the timing was an issue in her ruling. The ballots are printed. Absentees have been sent out and many have already been sent back. Jonny’s games have cost taxpayers money. I don’t care what percentage of the overall budget it is. In these tough times when every penny counts, not just for each individuals but for each municipality, this was an irresponsible thing to do. And that’s a lousy defense, Robert.

  14. The Wizard Jr October 31, 2008 at 3:25 pm #

    @ Scott Rytlewski – you have to have an IQ above 75 to comment on this blog. Please go back to eating paint chips and leave the grown folk alone to discuss these important matters…

  15. The Wizard October 31, 2008 at 3:35 pm #

    Russell – I knew you would make an appearence just to trash Powers, like you do every damn chance you get. This time though, I will not engage!

  16. hank October 31, 2008 at 3:53 pm #

    I voted absentee—either as an Active Duty military member or as the spouse of an Active Duty military member who was also registered in the City of Buffalo from 1976 until 1997, except for the 1988 election when I was living in Riverside at my parent’s home. I NEVER missed an election, and the registrars at my local polling place said my ballot was always received on time, and was counted.

    These days–I’m glad I don’t have to vote absentee. This break any rule to get Democrats back in power bullshit has got to go.

    Absentee ballots should be counted no matter WHAT the outcome. IN many cases, the absentees are the Citizens of New York State that serve the nation TO PROVIDE THE REST OF YOU LUNATICS WITH THE RIGHT TO VOTE.

    Voting in this country has disintegrated into a pathetic, sickening mess.

    Voters should NOT be able to register without showing a US birth Certificate, passport or other photo ID with a Social Security number (like a military ID) They can be provided free of charge by local governments. Of course Democrats fight this issue tooth and nail, along with showing Photo ID at the time of placing the ballot if voting in person. The dead can’t vote if they can’t be dug up and presented with their ID at the polls, after all.

  17. wizards cousin mizard October 31, 2008 at 4:46 pm #

    i’ll engage with russell — he’s an idiot. he trashes Powers, but what about the Republican candidates. They never backed Lee.

    The guy from Batavia finally did six months after leaving the race, yet he was praised by Republicans while Powers was mocked?

    If you hate Powers so much and love Republicans, you should’ve loved that he stayed on the line. The WFP couldn’ve been freed up in time for Alice, had the Republicans not stalled it in the court system as well.

    How many hundreds of thousands, or millions, did the Republicans waste in our court system fighting this thing?

  18. scott rrytlewski October 31, 2008 at 4:50 pm #

    to all the people who want to trash me under a assume name you are real cowards,

    jon
    contray to what you think i supported you till the end. what ever gerken told you about me was false and thats where you made the mistake a soon as he joined your campaign in feb the wheels started coming off.
    but that enough about me

    you should be ashamed of yourself for not even having the guts to call sally and thank here for all she did for you, no call ,no email no nothing so just ask your self what rural chair made weekly calls to erie and monroe county chairs ask for there support for you, when you wanted a house party set the date 40 people there, you wanted to talk about farming 1 day notice 22 people both media outlets front page stories, when ever you asked you got when she told you to lock up John Lafalce that went on deaf ears so when alice got that your faith was sealed and dont forget the ads paid for by sally and myself the invite to monroe county that sally extended to you befor they even new your name and for that kind of treatment to somebody who sold out for you you should be ashamed of your self,

    and jon how much do you think having to have these ballots printed and machines reset is going to cost maybe you should pay for it out of your left over money the state is broke as well as the counties so put people frist

  19. scott rrytlewski October 31, 2008 at 4:59 pm #

    mr Harding
    when you say thousands are not much, that has to be a result of your age and lack of real world experience,

    and then you talk about the independet line it was a week after the primary that the switch was made not 38 days later, and then you say the independet party didnt reach out to alice why do they have to i think if alice wanted it they would of ask them for it

  20. Mike In WNY October 31, 2008 at 5:23 pm #

    The unions and collectivists own the WFP, probably the court too, and will do anything to try to grab a larger share of taxpayers’ money.

  21. The Wizard Jr October 31, 2008 at 10:18 pm #

    I just cannot get over how incredibly stupid Scott Rytlewski is. Did this guy just sit around and eat paint chips as a child? I am thinking he did…

  22. Robert Harding October 31, 2008 at 11:06 pm #

    Harding – I noticed on your blog post at TAP that you are simply writing off the absentee and miliatry ballots because “in reality the most votes come via voters on Election Day who go to the polls”. I believe that all votes should be counted and this is a problem if people voted for Powers and now he is off the ballot, especially military folks. What if the Alice/Lee race is so close it goes to absentee ballot counts? Not so insignificant anymore.

    Wizard, did I ever say that those votes should not be counted? Absolutely not. My point is that when people go to the polls, that is where the correction should be made first and foremost. I’m not saying blow off the absentees at all.

    If roles were reversed, I think you would be whistling a different tune.

    I doubt it. If I was sent an absentee ballot after this year’s primary and I had to pick from Kryzan on the Democratic line, Lee on one of his multiple lines or Powers on the WFP line, I would have voted for Kryzan. End of story. I wouldn’t vote for a guy I knew was taking some time off, not campaigning anymore and who clearly made no effort to campaign. This was evident early on.

  23. Robert Harding October 31, 2008 at 11:16 pm #

    mr Harding
    when you say thousands are not much, that has to be a result of your age and lack of real world experience,

    Scott, the Orleans County budget is $67 million. Let’s say they spend $2,000 to make these adjustments (if that’s the real cost). That’s a real small percentage of the budget.

    As I have said in the past, we need not put a price tag on democracy.

    As for my age, I am 22 years old. I can spell words, use complete sentences and proper grammar. Your point?

    My real world experience involves being a new media journalist, which has had me covering events featuring Sen. Chuck Schumer, Sen. Hillary Clinton, Governor Eliot Spitzer, Governor David Paterson, Attorney General Andrew Cuomo, Senate Minority Leader Malcolm Smith, DNC Chairman Howard Dean, among many others. My boss was a senior adviser to John Kerry in 2004. In my young life so far, I could write a book. Again, your point?

    and then you talk about the independet line it was a week after the primary that the switch was made not 38 days later, and then you say the independet party didnt reach out to alice why do they have to i think if alice wanted it they would of ask them for it

    The Republicans can’t have their cake and eat it too. The Independence line was handed to Lee. Usually when a party has a line and they want to have someone on that line, they invite people in and interview them. Of course, you wouldn’t know anything about that process. But that’s the usual practice.

  24. lorie November 1, 2008 at 1:58 am #

    Scott, Sally was not the only rural chair that helped Jon. All the chairs supported and worked hard for him in so many different ways. I know this because I was working along side them. And I don’t know anyone that expected some engraved personal thank you for their efforts. The work was done because we all believed in the Democratic message and Jon was the messenger. In fact I thanked him for his 15 month sacrifice. Although you seem to think that the only people that played a pivotal role were you and your mother.

    Alice is now carrying the message and the same hard working folks are there for her campaign. That’s the way this works. It isn’t about one person.

    My mother has a saying — with friends like you, who needs enemies. Your insults directed at Jon are about the most ignorant thing I have ever heard.

    The ruling was the best news of the day. Go Alice! And best of luck to Jon Powers. He is a promising and inspirational leader that has a bright future in public service.

  25. The Wizard Jr November 1, 2008 at 9:22 am #

    Not so fast ladies and gentleman. God save the Federal Court for sticking up for the rights of the Wizard Family to vote for Jon Powers on the WFP. I will be casting my protest vote for Jon Powers. Forget Alice the polluter.

  26. scott rrytlewski November 1, 2008 at 9:50 am #

    lorie
    the most ignorant thing is you, why would a chair lower here self to the gutter to whine!!! and i didnt say the other chairs did nothing you all work hard but if jon didnt say anything to the other chairs then shame on him

    robert
    you show your ignorance of what a canidate has to do ask any one on the wf line they submitted a application ask lorie the canidate has to come to the chairman and ask unless gc change there rules so you are nothing more than a hot air bag

    and the fact your boss work for john kerry means what?? any one can write a book it getting someone to buy it but the title could hot air have plenty!!!!!!!!!!

  27. The Wizard November 1, 2008 at 10:00 am #

    Showing your true colors, Rytlewski. Again, I better see your ass running your own congressional candidate next cycle. Maybe Harold Suhr? Just make so you are competent this time and actually manage to get him on the ballot. Boy, that was embarassing for you pros out in Orleans!!! Your hand picked candidate getting booted off the ballot!!!! Nice job, Scott.

  28. The Wizard Jr November 1, 2008 at 12:56 pm #

  31. wizards cousin mizard November 1, 2008 at 4:25 pm #

    scott — why would a former chair lower himself to whine? you keep bitching all over the blogs like a little girl that “mommy didn’t get a thank you”

    Powers was trying to get off the line in time, and it’s the republicans who blocked it you stupid f*ck.

    take the brakes off and go get some fresh air. hating Powers just because he hired someone you don’t like? really pathetic.

    and a great zinger by the way: “but the title could hot air have plenty!!!!!!!!!!” seriously? what drugs are you on kid?

    I am pleased to see, Scott, that by the end of the post you actually spelled your OWN NAME correctly, because that certainly wasn’t the case at the beginning of the post….

  36. The Wizard November 1, 2008 at 7:09 pm #

    For the record: Rytlewski is talking about Wizard Jr., not me. Contrary to popular belief, I do not know who the other “wizards” are.

  37. scott rytlewski November 1, 2008 at 7:44 pm #

    sorry mr wizard you are right jr is a coward

  38. The Wizard Jr November 1, 2008 at 7:53 pm #

    rytlewski yoda he sounds like because he gramer he does not use appropriately

  39. Wizard's cousin Mizard's cousin Gizard November 2, 2008 at 2:38 am #

    Hey Scott,

    Good luck with your political career next time you decide to run a joke like Harold Suhr, try to barnstorm your way into bullying the Genesee County committee for an endorsement by insulting the chair and calling the campaign manager of a congressional campaign names, real professional.

    Mommy isn’t here to save you anymore when your pit-bull sized mouth with a poodle sized body decides to open up.

    Your a joke Scooter, you don’t warrant anyone telling you who they are, your the washed-up son of a disgraced chair without anything to hold onto.

  40. Wizard's cousin Mizard's cousin Gizard November 2, 2008 at 2:39 am #

    *disgraced former chair

  41. scott rytlewski November 2, 2008 at 9:40 am #

    if you had the balls to call harold suhr a joke to his face, probally not!! didnt try to bully gc county have 25 emails where they said things like no problen come next month , had 10 members come to the kickoff party for harold eat his food and socialize then they say they didnt know he was running, just as joe found out gc is ran by a bunch of two face people but they have pulled togeather for joe after the primary thanks to wfp louisa as haveing nothing to hold onto have plenty but from a coward of a screen name dont need to explain anything your the one hiding

  42. Robert Harding November 2, 2008 at 10:12 am #

    robert
    you show your ignorance of what a canidate has to do ask any one on the wf line they submitted a application ask lorie the canidate has to come to the chairman and ask unless gc change there rules so you are nothing more than a hot air bag

    Scott, I know what a candidate has to do. I have known for quite some time what a candidate has to do. But I’m not going to be called ignorant by someone who has helped give Albion Mike Hadick.

    I don’t blame Harold for any of what happened with his candidacy. Harold is a hardworking man. Politics should be the last thing on his mind. He’s got his own business, another job on the side PLUS the football team. Did you really expect him to have the time (and energy) to run an Assembly campaign? I know Harold. He doesn’t say no, but the process has to consist of more than a phone call and a “yes” from the other end.

    and the fact your boss work for john kerry means what?? any one can write a book it getting someone to buy it but the title could hot air have plenty!!!!!!!!!!

    Who have you worked for Scott?

    My point exactly.

  43. scott rytlewski November 2, 2008 at 12:17 pm #

    guess what robert, Hadick has won one more election then you will ever win, your just a hater filled with petty jeliousy and i hope you do run so we can sit back and watch you self distruct because you will get no support from any faction of this county even people that dont like me hate you and now you say you know harold your so out of touch its funny harold took his time when he made the decision and he doesnt do anything he dont want to

  44. The Wizard Jr November 2, 2008 at 12:33 pm #

    Scooter arent you a littel embarrassed at how stoopid you are you should go back to secund grade and learn basic gramer before you comment on blogs or you shud at least have your mommy pruf reed your blog posts before you post them that wud at least give her something to do now that she got her ass kicked in the chairs race and is basically useless now have a nice day

  45. scott rytlewski November 2, 2008 at 12:43 pm #

    real cool attack a women, you would think the host of this site would stop this, but tell us who you are and we will see how tough you are

  46. The Wizard Jr November 2, 2008 at 1:04 pm #

    scooter i did not attack a women i simply stated the facts that yur mom is no longer the chair because you guys made stoopid decizuns like harold suhr stop asking the pundit to defend you it looks like you can dish it but you cannot take it which is funny

  47. Buffalopundit November 2, 2008 at 1:43 pm #

    @scott rytlewski – I don’t see where anyone attacked “a women”. hth!

  48. scott rytlewski November 2, 2008 at 5:36 pm #

    pundit

    he doesnt know my mother and calls her useless, i hope pundit, you would protect your mother the guy hide behind a scree name when he should have to expose himself, so his mouth dosent write a check his behind cant cash, and if he would like to meet harold face to face he would not say a word. ask some of your clients who im sure would not condone name calling and ask them about my mother they would be ashamed to part of this site

  49. JLBravo November 23, 2008 at 7:58 pm #

    Rytlewski is a whining mama’s boy. Pathetic.
