continued Ms. Zambrano, then a Democrat, was Supervisor Judy Boyke’s deputy. When Mr. Corl was elected, Ms. Zambrano changed her enrollment to the Independence Party and became his deputy. A year later, when Mr. Corl decided he no longer interested in the supervisor’s job and wanted to be a county legislator, Ms. Zambrano promised to enroll as a Republican if the Republican leadership backed her supervisor candidacy.
Even though I am a Republican, it is no secret I do not support Ms. Zambrano’s candidacy. When she was a Democrat she was a fierce critic of Mr. Corl and town Republicans. Then, once he became supervisor, she miraculously became his staunchest ally. When the supervisor’s spot became open, she orchestrated a deal with the Republican leadership even though there were several qualified Republicans who also sought their party’s endorsement.
In my opinion Ms. Zambrano has indeed established a record, not one of economic development, but one of self-promotion and opportunism.
