And he seems to hate everything Mike Hein touches. To wit, this paragon of virtue has come out against the county executive's plans to implement flow control for the waste generated within Ulster County. And it's one thing to oppose a piece of policy, but it's quite another to compare Hein to Pontius Pilot:
Ulster County Legislator John Parete on Tuesday urged his fellow lawmakers to reject County Executive Michael Hein’s proposal to implement a law requiring that all trash collected in Ulster County be brought to the county Resource Recovery Agency for processing.So, let me see if I have this straight. Implementing flow control here in Ulster County, and doing so in a way that John Parete's feeling are hurt, is the same thing as the Romans murdering Christ.
Parete, D-Boiceville, made his appeal to members of the Legislature’s Ways and Means Committee, which is considering requests for amendments to Democrat Hein’s proposed 2013 budget.
Hein’s $359.3 million spending plan is based, in part, on the implementation of the trash “flow control” law, which the executive has said would eliminate a $2.45 million subsidy to the Resource Recovery Agency.
Parete, who opposes flow control, said the county should create a dedicated fund through the implementation of a user fee to help fund the agency’s operation.
“I think (Hein’s proposal for flow control) was poorly thought out. I think flow control is the worst possible scenario. … It’s a little like Pontius Pilate washing his hands and saying, ‘I’ve done my job,’” Parete said.
What. A. Buffoon.
This is the same buffoon who was ousted from the UC Democratic Party chair by Julian Schreibman, the same buffoon who says he lives in Boiceville when everyone knows he really lives in Stone Ridge -- and that he has to be living in Boiceville full time by the end of the year in order to continue to legally hold his seat.
And Parete, bitter buffoon that he is, refused to support Julian Schreibman for congress, Parete's ego being much more important than good representation for NY-19. Instead, Parete endorsed the odious Chris Gibson. So, if we're doing biblical references, perhaps Parete should research the name of Judas Iscariot.
John Parete is a disgrace to the Democratic Party, and should be run out of Democratic politics for good.
