Tell Us if Snair Has a Chance Against Vecchio

Get on The Soapbox and let us know.

Steven Snair.
Steven Snair.
With a close but clear Republican primary win under the belt of Smithtown Supervisor Pat Vecchio, the 12-term supervisor now must take on Democratic newcomer Steven Snair in the November election.

Oh, and his Republican primary opponent Robert Creighton will also be on the ballot on the Conservative line.

That begs the question, Can Vecchio be beat? Our new open blog, The Soapbox - Smithtown Gov't hopes to be the place where locals can debate these kinds of issues in town.

Creaton has more of a chance to win than Creighton.

Truthfully it has nothing to do with chance or party (Democrats, republicans they are all the same) it is strictly related to voting rate. See how many comments you get to a question related to Smithtown future...3,4 people??? Since the voting turnout is usually very low, candidates like Vecchio stays in office indefinitely. Anyone would be better than Vecchio in my humble opinion... Although I would prefer an individual with some management or business experience... Someone that has the guts to make significant changes, hire professionals to replace most current departments' directors...I hope to see more comments and a higher turnout next month!

If Creighton stays in the race and secures the conservative vote and Democrats come out in number we have a real shot at a new supervisor. Re: Snair's inexperience, even Vecchio once had no experience. It's time for change!

Imagine if Snair were to win? What's happening in Washington right now with the Tea Baggers Freezing the Government would be a daily happening in Smithtown.
