Westchester has elections for local offices Tuesday so I was getting robocalls Monday. I suppose I will vote although I have little knowledge of or interest in local politics. Which means for many of the races I will be choosing between a bunch of people I have never heard of.
For county executive I am voting for Astorino over Spano. Spano has been in office for 12 years already which I figure means this mess is his fault.
For county district attorney I am voting for the incumbent, DiFiore. She seems to be doing a better job than her predecessor, Pirro . DiFiore authorized the DNA test which freed Jeffrey Mark Deskovic , a weird local kid who was convicted of a murder he did not commit and spent 16 years in prison.
I was in the same room as DiFiore when she briefly came by to glad hand while I was serving on a grand jury earlier this year. I was a bit surprised by how old she looked in person although she is actually slightly younger than I am.
