Wiltshire's e-mail, five votes and the GOP


WILTSHIRE
As I’ve been writing for nearly a month, the new dynamic on the Troy Council is going to be interesting - little did I know it would become so interesting so fast.

On Dec. 9, Council President-elect Rodney Wiltshire sent a strongly-worded e-mail to three other councilmen blasting Councilman Gary Galuski for hanging up on him and other perceived acts of disrespect.

In the e-mail, which can be read below, Wiltshire, who is bi-racial, said: “I will not be his (Galuski’s) boy or house nigger.” Yes, the word distasteful, but focusing on just that is a superficial reading of what is really going on.

GALUSKI
While the email is directed at Galuski, one can’t help but wonder if Wiltshire is referring to county Chairman Tom Wade. Wiltshire was one of many Democrats who tried to take Wade out last year with Robert “Rabbit” Riley and there is no love lost between the two. Now that Wiltshire is Council president, he does have some juice and part of that juice comes in the way of appointments – both to committees and to paid positions within City Hall.

WADE
Not surprisingly, who Wiltshire wants and who Wade wants are not the same people.

Perhaps the most high profile is that of City Clerk. As I reported nearly two weeks ago (and The Record reported today) Wiltshire wants to replace the current city clerk, Karla Guererri, with Cheryl Christianson, who happens to be Galuski’s sister in law.

I initially wrote that it could be interpreted as an attempt to buy off Galuski, but given the email exchange that obviously didn’t work and Galuski remains squarely in Wade’s corner. And by extension that of current Council President Lynn Kopka, who brought her friend Guererri aboard and would just as soon see her stay in the $54,800 a year job.

In other words, the divide I mentioned before between Wiltshire and company and Kopka/Wade and company is reaching the size of the Grand Canyon.


FIVE VOTES
While Wiltshire said there is no way he will nominate Galuski to chair the Parks and Recreation Committee, which he holds now, Galuski points out it takes a majority to approve any appointment. That much is true, but what’s also true is the nomination has to come from Wiltshire.

Furthermore, given his familial ties, Galuski should abstain so that leaves Kopka (pictured left) and Wiltshire vying for five votes out of eight.

What few may know, if it’s a four-for tie, Guererri remains clerk until a five-vote majority is reached, whenever that may be.

Galuski also said he would lobby for the position of Council pro temp, which also needs five votes. Wiltshire, however, would like to see the No. 2 spot go to Councilman Ken Zalewski, D-District 4. As you know, he has always been an independent voice on the Council and also supported Riley over Wade.

Which brings us back to the Great Divide.

Zalewski is squarely in Wiltshire’s corner. I’ve heard Councilman Bob Doherty, D-District 4, is too but his support tenuous at best. I’m less sure of Councilwoman-elect Anastasia Robertson, but I understand she is too.

That said, Wade has the clout the chairmanship brings, and there is also Mayor Lou Rosamilia (pictured right) to think about. I’m not saying it would happen now, but I know in times past which streets get paved, plowed and swept in which district has been tied to how the representative votes on certain issues. The two entities combined can clearly apply some pressure if they so choose.

In the Kopka/Wade corner is Galuski and Councilwoman-elect Erin Sullivan-Teta.

THE GOP

That leaves the two Republicans – Councilman Dean Bodnar, District 3 and Councilman-Elect Jim Gordon, At Large, with a surprising amount of clout on a Democratic Party dominated Council.

Galuski said Wiltshire is ready to nominate Gordon for the high-profile position of Public Safety Committee chair and who knows what else the two may get or want. As an aside, I’m not sure who else would want to chair that committee because the controversy in the TPD is unlikely to go away anytime soon but it is one of the more coveted positions on the Council.  

In the end, the Council is starting off way more interesting than the last one and it’s not even the New Year yet.


THE EMAILS
 
 
Dec. 9 e-mail from Wiltshire to Gary Galuski, Robert Doherty, Ken Zalewski

Guys,

    Gary earlier today around 11AM, very rudely, hung up the phone on me after my 5th or 6th attempt to meet up with him and discuss the transition of the council.

    His behavior was and is bizarre, unprofessional, discourteous, and dis-respectful.  Despite what he may believe, I have never disrespected him in that or any manner.

    I am continually shocked by the manner in which some he behaves.

    I am not Lynn, and I don't wish to be compared to Lynn.  I clearly indicated to him before him hung up on me that I am trying to meet with each councilperson in person (as was done 2 years ago) and we would have our caucus meeting after.  Probably this week.

    I specifically had wished to discuss his committee preferences and also have a serious conversation about the perceived slight that I am told that he has felt from me 2 years ago surrounding the courthouse and the pro-tempore vote.  I had wanted to discuss that with him in person and clarify and apologize for my insensitivity.  Since we are not meeting, I guess he will not receive my apology for that behavior.

    However, it is clear, that he is unwilling to meet me, and discuss things.  He has also not responded to my request for committee preferences.  I had assumed that he would have wished to continue as Parks and Rec chair.

    I am not giving him a chair.

    I have just spoken to Cheryl Christiansen about her proposed appointment and confirmed that Gary's behavior will not and does not reflect on her.  She said that she doesn't share his views on things, and is happy to be professional and keep the affairs separate.

    I have a call and an email into Jack McCann regarding both this and Lynn's behaviors and attitudes, I will insist that he publicly support me and my position.

    Let me be very clear, I am not happy with our phone call, and I will not be treated or addressed in that manner.

    This boat has sailed, I am not trying to fix issues that aren't my doing or responsibility. 

    I am going to be making some very hard, serious, and possibly controversial decisions in the following days concerning all of these appointments.  I absolutely need YOUR support and confidence.

    I am not his boy, or the house nigger.

Rodney   
      

Rodney G. Wiltshire Jr.

At-Large Councilman

 

Dec. 12 response from Councilman Gary Galuski

Dear Council Member,

I am forwarding an email sent to me by incoming Council President Rodney Wiltshire because it should be seen by all majority members of the Council.  After reading the entire piece, I'm sure you will agree that he owes me an apology as well as others offended by his insensitive and distasteful choice of words.

I am entering my fourth and final term on the city council.  In all of my prior terms, the incoming majority has met to collectively decide committee assignments and committee chairmanships. Never have I or any of my colleagues been submitted to the type of threat incoming Council President Wiltshire issued to me with a guarantee of no chairmanship simply because I asked when we will caucus to conduct such business.  Additionally, he is pretending to grab control of the entire process by handing out committee chairs to his favorites while ignoring senior members of the council.

Recently, he even announced he plans to "give" the Public Safety committee chairmanship to newly elected Republican Jim Gordon.  Two years ago, he opposed giving committee chairmanships to Republicans when Council President Kopka raised the idea which we voted down.

You should be aware that this process deserves and requires the input of all majority members---ALL SEVEN DEMOCRATS.  I urge you to remind incoming Council President Wiltshire he was not elected Emperor and Committee members shall be nominated by the President and confirmed or rejected by a majority of the members of the Council at each organizational meeting. Each committee, if possible, shall have at least one member from a minority political party. (City of Troy Charter Section C-15) He campaigned with promises of transparency in government but, before being sworn into office, projects a closed door style of "my way or the highway" bossism.

 

In closing, I want you to know I wish to remain as the chair of the Recreation Committee where I feel my background and skills can be full utilized and I will be reaching out to each of you for your support for the position of Council President Pro-Tempore.

Sincerely,

GG

  1. Everyone who knows Gary Galuski knows full well he is not capable of writing that letter. It's obvious Tom Wade wrote that letter for GG. Gray is a thug who uses language much worse than Rodney. When it comes to skill sets Gary took the same civil service test numerous times never passing it and that is why he was laid off from city employment.
    We are finally getting a look at the real democrats! Racist, insensitive liars.

    GOOD LUCK TROY YOU ELECTED THEM.

  4. Tom Aldrich is the natural choice for City Clerk. Tom has the personality, appearance, and the people skills that would bring a breath of fresh air to the clerk's office. Tom is close to Rodney and worked tirelessly on his campaigns. Besides, no one wears a Giants jacket like Tom can. Gary Galuski likes the Giants so he might vote for Tom too.

  12. While Rodney's strong language may be regrettable, I can certainly understand his frustration at being utterly disrespected by a fellow Democratic council member. It seems like Rodney should have earned a certain level of respect with his decisive electoral victory, but apparently not from Mr. Galuski. I'm not sure of the nature of Galuski's lack of respect, but maybe Rodney's on to something...

  13. It has become so much clearer now that Carmella should have been elected president, Where is the recount? She would never use such derogatory language. She would call everyone "peeps" instead of the "n" word. She might call someone "Brother" but not in a racial way. She would lead with charm and charisma and great tunes would play before and afte council meetings. It would be awesomesauce. TRUTH!

  14. I hope the R's run Carmella in 2015. It gives us an easy seat --Teta is a good example of this. I mean, what's she ever done, and who is she --but she got elected. Those geniuses making the decisions for the R's make it easy for us. Run Carmella Run!!

  16. All of you overlook one fact: Wiltshire would not be the incoming Council President without the IND line which provided the votes for him to narrowly edge out Teta for the top spot. And how did he get the IND line ? He had to make a deal with the Republicans since only republican backed candidates get that endorsement.
    WAKE UP. Wiltshire sold his soul in order to finish first and already has shown his inability to handle simple issues. You can expect more dictatorial attitude from him.

He was frustrated by the lack of respect and actions taken by his "fellow councilmen." Some may view his actions as uncalled for and inappropriate. I feel his actions made his colleagues think twice about their arrogant actions.

    Let's remember that he came out on top in the last election winning by over 200 votes. He is very well respected for that. He has been a very much needed voice for our city for the past 2 years that he has served on the council. He advocates for what he thinks is right and is not swayed by his political patronage. Council President Elect Wiltshire needed to defend himself.

    3. Nice. Talk about a woman that is in this city to put a positive spin on things. She's not party affiliated and not we'll known yet everyone has something to say and it's wrong we need more peopel like the press woman Lou hired if we ever are gonna turn this city reputation around. Find someone else to pick on.

    4. You know Robert, maybe it's not a real good idea to be calling an attorney a felon --with nothing but those voices in your head to base it on. You'll prolly get served some paper in the near future.Bottom line is you've done more damage to your families cause to open their business, than the pile of dirt in front of the door did. You've successfully pissed off Congressmen, Senators, Mayors, Deputy Mayors, Council people, and have displayed your kooky self to the 30 people that watch the council broadcast. 150 e-mails to Gov Cuomo with no response --should tell you something. I've read that you now think that Rodney will save the day --think again. You've burned the bridge Robert --keep throwing gas on the fire and eventually it will completely fall.

    1. The residents of our city do respect Mr. Wiltshire and this was proven when he was reelected. Now we just need the other elected officials to follow suite.

      May I remind you of the large margin he won by. Why don't you look it up before you comment on here. You are all idiots!

    3. Mr. Wiltshire has done plenty for this city serving on the city council. The people of our city know this and that is how he garnered the most votes. 200 votes is not a narrow margin for an at large.

      I guess narrow margin looks different when you have candidates getting on 3 lines and still losing by well over 1,000 votes. ;)

  42. It has become quite evident that the people on this site are puppets for the master puppeteer himself Tom " I threaten women with bodily harm, I buy votes and I steal elections at all costs" Wade. The irony is that he was beat. And he was beat quite badly. He was simply outwitted, his fear tactics and bullying are what the people of Troy stood against when the loud and clearly voted for Councilman Wiltshire. He is still up to his old tactics by trying to make Galuski pro temp and Kopka the defacto president.

    Newsflash Tom and Company: You are all racist jerks who just lost a huge race, your influence is waning and your rein is about to come to an end. Troy is primed and ready for change under new leadership. You lost. You lost bad. Now, to the victor goes the spoils.

    2. because an African American uses the n-word to describe himself and how he is being treated does not make him racist. Tom and Jack both have used that word to describe Rodney, I know I witnessed it myself. They both also like to threaten Rodney's volunteers and campaign workers...as well as threatening bodily harm to women who have worked with Rodney. Vino? I think Tom will need a tall glass of scotch after the organizational meeting.

    3. Rodney was not using that word to describe himself. He was using that word to describe how Gary Galuski allegedly treated him. Gary never used that word, nor did he ever reference Rodney's race. Nonetheless, Rodney Wiltshire decided to bring race into the conversation. Why? Without any basis in actual fact, we can only conclude that he assumes white people have a problem with his race simply because they're white.

      Now, what do we call people who ascribe a negative set of characteristics (such as prejudice) to a specific race? Yes, that's right. We call them racists.

  43. Gary's indignation is funny considering he has said a lot worse. Gary and his puppet master Wade is just trying to use it to further their hold on power (or get more in Gary's case), and people are seeing through it.

    1. It's sad that Tom has allowed idiots like Guluski to seek, and help gain office. We need better qualified candidates, not just jokers with established family names in their communities. We're still winning, but for how much longer. Eventually, with all the baggage we've picked up because of some political never will be's, the house of cards will fall. Look at our new self proclaimed savior, Rodney. How stupid is he to be putting that in an e-mail? Remember Dunne & the Dormitory Authority e-mails? Like I said, Tom needs to be finding candidates with a bit more moral fiber than some of these guys we have. No more creeps like Kevin McGrath, or Sybil clones like Nina. It's a damn embarrassment to someone like me who has voted Democrat since the 1968 presidential election, to see the conduct of some of these people. Who's running with this ones wife, who's forging ballots, lying felons granted immunity, stealing HUD money, taking pictures of nude teens at HQ. When does it stop? Tom needs to step up and get rid of these people

    2. Dear Anonymous @12:48 PM. Perhaps if the Republicans had better candidates, they'd have won something in the city in the last 5 election cycles - Tutunjian, Bauer and Mantello - all two-time losers.

    7. 3:15 --are you a real person? Nobody could possibly be this stupid. Did you mean, Parole, as in, "after his arrest in 98, Kevin went on Parole"? Or did you mean, "how many felons other than Kevin do the Dem's have on their Payroll? And F-Carmella --OK? She's still at the BOE counting the votes and getting the same results.

  44. Council needs to work with its new president

    We moved to Troy five years ago and have attended a fair number of City Council meetings since then. Prior to the citywide election in November, we attended a “Meet the Candidates Night” where we personally met Rodney Wiltshire for the first time. We were impressed by his intellect, honesty and his well defined vision for the future of the City of Troy.

    We were angered this week after learning that several Council members have refused to attend important organizational meetings, and have voiced their opposition to working with Mr. Wiltshire, the incoming City Council President. Such behavior is reminiscent of recent political infighting at the Federal level, which nearly shut down our government and cost millions of dollars to our economy.

    Mr. Wiltshire attained the highest vote count, earning him the position of Council President and the duties which accompany that seat. It is clear that the voters have spoken and that we approve of his goals and ideas.

    Mr. Wiltshire was quoted as saying, “The election ended Nov. 5 and now it’s time to govern.”

    We sincerely hope that all Council members will remember that they were elected to represent the people of this City. We expect that you will work with our new Council President in an open and honest manner, and in the best interest of all.
