Is Pallone an Idiot?


You’re in Highlands dude.. Why do you think you are not? Because everyone around you has teeth? Because you are in a big house? Because you have a nice view?? Pallone, YOU ARE IN HIGHLANDS.. maybe the council person next to you could be a little more informative..

      I as a Highlands resident am offended by the comment made by Admin. Admin seems to be ascribing her attitude toward Highlanders to Pallone. She is the one who feels we are perceived as having no teeth, unattractive homes, and no views. She is trying to make us believe that is why he typed Atlantic. Highlands. I guess Admin has never made a mistake.

      It doesn’t offend you that Pallone has done nothing for the town since Sandy? If you like Pallone great have at it.. I don’t.

      Just for the record those pictured with Pallone are tireless advocates for our three excellent public schools. The Tri-district consists of the At. Highlands & Highlands Elementary Schools as well as Henry Hudson Regional High School. Those pictured are the Tri-district Foundation organizers and supporters, members of the three separate Boards of Education, our esteemed Superintendent of the Tri-District. They are active, helpful, positive individuals with a vision of educational excellence!

      For the record, why couldn’t the one council person pictured with him reach out to Pallone’s office as a Highlands Official and speak to his staff and positively and politely ask him to repost with the correct town?

      I’m not the news.. I’m a blog, which is an online journal of sorts that is very editorialized. I’m a Benny replant. I’ve struggled with the decision on whether to allow or not allow comments, as I’ve had my share of internet trolls who only want to comment to start fights. Its a blog, read it if you enjoy the commentary don’t read it if you don’t. If you really really want to know, its not a secret, a lot of people know, but I don’t normally walk up and say Oh I’m so and so and I write the Highlands Blog. If I see you at clamfest I’ll tell you.

    Sleezy snakeoil salesman. People defending him should be ashamed cause they know the truth but just like to attack!

    I didn’t realize my position on council was also to monitor the entire free worlds social media post and contact their office to correct them, silly me. Either way if you are so offended please feel free to reach out to his office and ask his admin to change it. Honestly I am more offended by the constant comments that you make stating about our residents and how you stereotype them.

      You seemed to be monitoring me enough, so it’s not far fetched for one to think you be monitoring the social media postings of Congressman Pallone about the town, especially one that you are actually pictured in. I actually did reach out and let me know he wasn’t in AH, but nothing got done. Silly me, I thought as a sitting council person that touts you are in regular contact with him, you might have some more weight on the matter than I did. As to your offense to “my stereotyping” Highlands, again goes to you either not having proper reading comprehension skills or purposefully trying to twist words around. The stereotypes are out there, they aren’t “My” stereotypes, they’ve been around a lot longer than I have. I was actually correcting Pallone’s possible perceptions that (some of us) are intelligent , most of us have teeth and there are some really nice houses here with really nice views. And for the most part there are some really nice people here, but then you have a few that aren’t. So, let me try to explain to you in the simplest terms possible, when it did reach your radar that Pallone’s post existed, and as you were in the picture, instead of blasting people who had a problem with it, made a phone call with “gee, Mr Pallone, your social media person screwed, up, and some of my residents were upset you made a mistake with the name of our town, do you mind reposting it with Highlands instead of AH?” Especially since you seem to be going to breakfast and other meals with him, would have most likely be met with “sure no problem” THEN you could have posted on facebook, I’m aware of the issue, I spoke with Pallone and he’s going to repost it and come across like a professional politician. But silly me to think you might want to be perceived as professional.

    I’m the one who was “offended”. I have no affiliation to Pallone but after 40 plus years in Highlands am so tired of being confused with AH as well as having our residents & community stereotyped as “less than” by anyone. This image is perpetuated by self acclaimed “silly” people repeating it ad nausea. Name calling and negativity by people who present themselves as “better than” & always knowing what “other people” should do or have done bring Highlands down more than the anything. Believe me I don’t monitor this blog. If I read it it’s generally for comic relief!

    “Kaner” you represent the people of Highlands. Have you forgotten? Or have you never realized it? Either way, it’s scary. Was “idiot” too strong of a word, yes probably. But it was offensive (the “Atlantic Highlands” oops that is) to we the citizens of Highlands (that you represent by the way). You, as our representative, should absolutely get him on the phone, tell him he was in Highlands with gracious hosts, and get it corrected. If you can’t do that, step down. We don’t need council members who put their self-interests first. Get it, got it, good.
