Collins shouldn’t feel too good about victory

During Chris Collins’ county executive concession speech in 2011, he expressed surprise at his loss. I had quite a chuckle hearing his “victory” speech on Tuesday night, as he was elated that the people voted “him” back into office, and again was surprised at the closeness of the race.

As an independent voter, I feel I need to introduce Collins to a concept that his arrogance does not allow him to accept. There is a reason the honorable Kathy Hochul came so close to defeating him, against insurmountable odds in a heavily Republican district. I will allow him to do the math himself, as I should not have to elaborate further.
