TOO BAD ALL THOSE UNION CITY PEOPLE CANT VOTE
There is no other platform for me to express a narrative that should be chronicled. A couple of people involved with Albio Sire’s campaign have asked me why I have turned my back on Albio and not done more for his campaign. First of all I have not turned my back on Albio. It is true that I have been absent in his campaign. Why?
Let me begin, Albio’s headquarters called me to see if I could get some photographs from the days we played basketball at St Peter’s College. Albio and I were teammates and roommates. I was able to produce two photographs. One has been used depicting Albio , myself, and Richard McPherson. The other hasn’t been used.
I received a follow up call from a lady in his staff. I don’t recollect her name, it could have been Barbara, I do recollect she had a Polish last name. She conveyed to me that they expected me at s ceremony that was going to be held at Hudson County Community College for the purpose of naming tha atrium in his name. I was glad to go just as I have gone to all his name granting ceremonies.
When I entered the college, I noticed there were at least 49 seats with names in them. My name was not in any of them. The seats were crowded but there was space in the front seats for my 6’10’m frame. There were 6 seats. The people there were short in stature. Some of the people there knew if my neuromuscular condition which dethroned my basketball career snd almost my career as an educator. No one in that front seat offered me their seat to live to empty seats with names in the rest aisles.
I wanted to stay but after about 29 minutes my legs got numbed. I was looking for a place to hold onto or to sit and there were none. In the middle of a speech I had to yell to an acquaintance in the back. “Ino I am falling please come get me”. Ino ran towards me and dragged me to the exit.
I sat down outside , and a few people went outside to check up on me, Albio Sires wasn’t one of them. I would have expected that after a 50 year relationship
as a roommate, a teammate, a basketball competitor, that he should have at least taken a moment to check on me in a ceremony that I contributed for him and went to support him.
Those lack of protocols truly upset me on a personal level. I don’t linger on it but if people are concerned about my indifference then let’s put an end to it nos.
That was personal, not political. I have instructed family and friends to vote for Albio, as I will, in recognition of the outstanding job his administration did in West New York when he was the mayor and when West New York was at the nadir with multiple departments investigations by federal authorities. Albio’s administration with the mastermind Richard Turner did a hell of s job. They are still together.
