Kirwan's defeat

If there is one state Assembly candidate who I'm sorry to see defeated, it's Tom Kirwan, the Newburgh Republican.

I don't agree much with Kirwan on most issues. But as a member of the Assembly minority, he has no say in anything important, so it hardly matters.

Being in the GOP minority, however, enables him to speak his mind. And does he ever!

Kirwan has been an unabashed critic of nearly all things Albany, often in terms even critical newspaper editorial pages don't touch. He also has a sense of humor with a sharp edge. Perfect.

Kirwan has been a member of the loyal opposition. Too bad he won't be around the Capitol anymore to nag the majority.
