Christmas in Downtown Edison – 2015

Twas’ a few days before Christmas and those sly little elves,
 Edison’s Karabinchak & Russomanno again labor to benefit themselves.
Not caring a wit what the people might think,
they again place Politics before People in spite of the stink.

And putting his thumb to the tip of his nose,
Councilman Karabinchak said ‘Dems’ my way and Assembly is where it goes.’
He thought Russomanno’s campaign would make for an easy sell,
but didn’t count on his fellow councilmembers bringing out a concerning yell.

He wasn’t concerned about disrespecting the public per se,
dubious transparency and mean-spirited rhetoric is the Karabinchak way.
His use of political surrogates of the Russomanno faction sway,
is sadly over used so he can conveniently stay in everbody’s way.

So while we all scratch our heads and say What the Hey!,
His council performance has gone the ‘Mythomania Lane’ way.
You can bet that Karabinchak is working hard on going to the State Assembly,
bet his charming political personality and open-mindedness they can’t wait to see.

He actually thinks he deserves a move up in the Local Dem Party pecking bin,
while ignoring Councilmembers’ Diehl & Shah who also want a spin.
Filled with groupies from the Local Dem Party failed re-cycle bin,
it’s ironic to see he can’t even get past his fellow council kin.

In this season of giving, Karabinchak is again trying to take,
a seat the State Assembly would be a huge mistake.
While it seems the public will not be his anytime priority,
he will most likely bring forth his disconcerting self-serving mentality.

If in this feeling I’m not alone,
take up your pen or pick up the phone.
Let Karabinchak know that true public-servants pave the way,
not disrespect the public when they disagree with him and want to have a say.

With a ‘Maybe’ Assembly seat soon to open with a Dem Party pick from town,
don’t give it to Karabinchak’s and then watch his face for his usual frown.
And I heard him exclaim with all that maneuving in hand,

Merry Christmas to Edison, and let all the Karabinchak believers be scammed!?!
