Kane v. Curran
The special election to fill the vacated State Senate seat of Lou DeLuca will be held this coming Tuesday, January 15th. And there truly could not be a more stark difference between the two candidates, Republican Rob Kane, and Democrat Kenny Curran.
I hope you will indulge me as I conduct a brief compare and contrast.
Rob Kane - Four term Watertown Councilman, husband and father, private business owner.
Kenny Curran - Political hack, newlywed, claims to have been defeated Congressman Jim Maloney's war advisor.
Rob Kane - Managed to defeat a popular incumbent state representative for nomination and lead a unified Republican effort.
Kenny Curran - Likes to place midnight calls to political foes within his own party threatening them.
Rob Kane - Community service includes Former Board Member of United Way, Waterbury Association of Retarded Citizens, and Regional Workforce Investment Board.
Kenny Curran - Community service performed at the request of a judge as a result of harassment charges against him.
Rob Kane - Rather be serving as a Senator.
Kenny Curran - Rather be blogging.
I hope the fine people of the 32nd District make the right choice. With any luck, Come Tuesday Rob Kane will be a new Senator, and Kenny Curran can return to blogging with his Stop & Shop pineapple soda and Funyuns by his side.
