I have been reading and listening about comments on whether Mr. Goodman is a resident and is eligible to be a candidate in our upcoming election. It may be remotely possible for Mr. Goodman to win what Gershon Cohen calls a “legal question or quagmire” based on weaknesses in the borough code. Mr. Cohen’s past history of suing the borough when his hand-picked candidate looked like he had lost the race makes that statement look like a threat. Seeing as Karen Hess has elected to run as a write-in candidate and having no doubt of her qualification or residency, it would seem like common sense would prevail and the citizens should elect her and possibly avoid a lawsuit. Mr. Goodman can then run next year with no doubt of his eligibility. She is the best candidate anyhow.
