They write "Seaford Executive Leader Charlie Milone expressed a lot of optimism with regards to this year's election in which he will work tirelessly to retire Legislator David Mejias and work to ensure a Republican majority in the County Legislature."
I guess since Mejias' district is not in Seaford, Milone mentioned Mejias and not Dave Denenberg because Peter King was in attendence. (UPDATE: Got my DD wrong. Denis Dunne has Seaford.) Mejias made King spend his car payment money to retain his congressional seat. Mejias make Peter mad.
In order to "retire" Mejias, the republicans need a viable candidate.
And I don't even need to get into what kind of disaster there would be in the county if the republicans get the majority in the County Legislature. Peter Schmitt as presiding officer? Junk Bond status here we come (again.)
