In record setting time, we went from promises of the ‘best and brightest’ directly to payback the ‘oldest and richest’:

Stefan Mychajliw has named a 12-member “advisory council” to help with the transition to Erie County comptroller and to guide his work after he takes office in January.

Paul F. Ciminelli, president and CEO of Ciminelli Real Estate Corp., will serve as chairman. 

The other members are:
Robert M. Glaser, managing director and chairman of Freed Maxick and former chairman of the Erie County Fiscal Stability Authority; Philip C. Kadet, certified public accountant, Lumsden & McCormick; Nancy Naples, former Erie County comptroller and former commissioner of the state Department of Motor Vehicles; Daniel C. Oliverio, attorney, Hodgson Russ, and former chairman of the Erie County Fiscal Stability Authority; and Colleen DiPirro, president and CEO, Amherst Chamber of Commerce.

Also, Alfred Hammonds Jr., former deputy Erie County executive; Mark Hamister, chairman and CEO, The Hamister Group Inc.; Philip Corwin, president, Corwin Holdings LLC; Martha Lamparelli, chairwoman, Erie County 21st Century Commission; Russ Gugino, aide to former U.S. Rep. Jack Kemp; and Randall Best, vice president of business development, Gernatt Asphalt Products Inc.

Most (if not all) of the people on this payback ‘advisory board’ are well past their political expiration dates, yet they keep re-emerging like some awful acid reflux.

And don’t think for a second that the democrat’s don’t have a lengthy  ‘politically expired’ list of their own… They are just as guilty.

Why do we continually churn out our political class faster than a gallon of Perry’s Ice cream?

Year after year. Same names. Same nothing.
