So, Achadjian is looking at Blakeslee’s seat? Do I smell a deal? Let’s see, Maldonado holds up the budget for ‘concessions’ but is really looking at running for a statewide position in ’10. Blakeslee is a ‘moderate’ but votes no on the budget to protect his conservative ‘no new taxes’ pledge. The budget block hurts the county but Achadjian defends Maldonado.
Is this the deal, guys? Achadjian to Blakeslee’s Assembly seat, Blakeslee to Maldonado’s Senate seat, and Blakeslee and Achadjian support Maldonado for some as yet unnamed statewide run. Wow, amazing that you three haven’t let the statewide economic crisis, furloughs, and layoffs interfere with you all taking care of yourselves!
It would be refreshing to have someone in office who was more interested in representing us, the people, than taking care of their political future.
