Freeville has a mayor's race

and the Ithaca Journal has guest viewpoints from incumbent Mayor Lotte Carpenter and challenger Ron Szymanski.

Most of both pieces is pretty classical muncipal issues, but Szymanski really pushes the doubletalk envelope with:

My ability to work with all interests is demonstrated by ... the "all-points-of-view" forums on natural gas drilling I conduct for the Dryden Safe Energy Coalition,

Can the DSEC and its members stop pretending that they're all things to all people? They're the local face of the gas industry allied with the local Republican committee, delivering tea party rhetoric online and not even holding their forums in the town.

Freeville's non-partisan elections will be Tuesday, March 20th. It's been a long time since they've had a contested mayor's race!
