A house in Tivoli and a business in the Village of Fishkill were gutted by fire just five days after County Executive William Steinhaus vetoed the Electrical License law.
Both fires were electrical fires.
Thank God no Dutchess County residents were killed or burned as both buildings were empty at the time of each blaze.
How much more foolish can a person look then Bill Steinhaus looks today? He is caught in the old style political mold that so many people are tired of these days. An angry,nasty,back-biting politician who will sacrifice anyone and anything, including his own constituents safety, just to win what he thinks is a political joust with the opposing political party. Even if it only exists in his own mind.
He will be spending the next few days twisting the arms of his fellow Republicans to change their yes votes for the electrical license to no votes. The legislature sent the bill to him with enough BI-PARTISAN votes to override his veto. Hold tight Dutchess County Legislators and don't trade your constituents safety over a manufactured,ficticious political fight that exists only in some bully's head.
They don't call him Boss Hog for nothing.
