Will Mark Poloncarz Reject the Working Families Party Or Is He Just a Political Hypocrite?
Buffalo, NY – “While his Democrat Party Chairman is in Westchester County today, voting for a Cuomo commanded resolution to support a ban on fusion voting in New York State, it begs the question if Mark Poloncarz and Erie County Democrat candidates will actually follow their own political rhetoric.
Leaders always put their money where their mouth is. Mark Poloncarz said fusion voting ‘promotes corrupt backroom deals with minor party leadership who stand for nothing but themselves’. He has also publicly criticized voters for being too ignorant to know their own party, writing that they ‘don’t realize they are a member of a political party.’
If Poloncarz and his Erie County Democrats feel so strongly, then I call on him to denounce minor parties and not accept their nomination if it is offered. If he takes the minor lines he is nothing more than a hypocrite looking for cheap attention. We already know he is the most political County Executive in Erie County’s history.
So what’s it going to be Mark? Will you and your cronies take the Working Families Party nomination or not?”
