I'm the nephew of Larry Barmore and a Marine, so my opinion is biased... But a businessman or a career politician... Not a very tough choice there... Career politicians have destroyed the economy of New York.

WatchDog..Barmore refused to raise his hand or acknowledge in any other way he has stepped foot in the CCH,when asked to do so by Mr.DeJoe at Wednesdays vote..He knows diddly squat about Nursing Homes about..And he is one of the legislators who has driven this County into the ground..

Buford-Barmore has been in the CC Home and has been looking at the nursing home problems going as far back as the closure of the Manor Oak Home in Jamestown. He understands the need to privatize the CC Home before it has to be closed outright because of the financial losses.

Since you asked the question Judeye the answer is no that is not it,how could you have possibly arrived at that conclusion? Oh did you by chance contact MS Cornell and advise her to set an example by not taking special interest monies?

joew..what are you talking about? The donation they made to her campaign?

Oh my..if that is it...tell me where you stand on our Rep Reed who has gotten thousands and thousands of donations from oil and gas, insurance, etc....Yet he is to vote on issues directly related to those industries.

For me, I want the money OUT...ALL of it in every campaign. Where do you stand on this? Will you work for Move to Amend? vote is with Cornell and it has NOTHING to do with any campaign donations. It has everything to do with her integrity, honesty and her willingness to stand up for what she thinks is right and moral. Something rare in many politicians these days.

Her vote paid for by the CSEA lost her the election.

I have commented in other posts about Cornell's rudeness - this article contains proof of that rudeness. Insulting people is not a good way to get their votes. Cornell is unfit to be a county clerk!!

Did Cornell vote to cut costs to the taxpayers by voting against selling the county home? - NO!! As I have written previously (and the below posts show), Cornell is a snake in the grass who will do what SHE wants to. Cornell is NOT to be trusted with power!! Vote against Cornell on 11/5/13!!!

Cry baby Cornell is NOT the person for the job. The tire changing remark is terribly unprofessional. She has NO experience that qualifies her for the job. We all know how much pride Sandy takes in her job and the hard work she put in to make it what it is today. If she thinks Barmore is the one it's good enough for me.

Wait just a darn minute,how can someone say they are a "strong fiscal conservative" and vote the opposite way as a member of the legislature. That statement is nothing more than pandering and window dressing!

Well, in addition to that condescending quote, is her condescending quote about being a macro-level manager while Mr. Barmore is a micro-level manager. I think that begs the question, what has she ever managed? I would also like to reminder her, Sandy Sopak came from the exact same background - managing a family-owned business (trucking company). When your entire existence relies on doing the job well, and not simply collecting a paycheck from taxpayers, you learn how to really manage. If he didn't do the job well, his family didn't eat. If she didn't do the job well, she'd still collect the same paycheck and who would know?

The piece provides this quote from Ms. Cornell, "If you want someone to change your tires and your brakes very well, Mr. Barmore is the man for you. If you want a county clerk with 15 years extensive experience in a related field of public service"

I guess majority leader of the county legislator doesn't qualify as related experience. Ms. Cornell fails to mention Mr. Barmore was selected as majority leader by his peer at the same time Ms. Cornell continued her position in the legislator as minority assistant. Mr. Barmore was chosen for that responsibility with the knowledge that he also had his job as owner of Gay Mark Tire. I would love for Ms. Cornell to explain exactly what her extensive experience is, and exactly how long ago is. Unfortunately, specific details about an unimpressive resume don't exactly win elections.
