Skartados Delivers, Literally


Who said that politicians don’t deliver? Just look at Assemblyman Frank Skartados, D-Milton, Ulster County.

He was ready to head up to Albany on Tuesday for Local Government Committee meeting when, his news release said, “he saw one of his goats on his farm in Milton, crying out and having difficulty moving around. Knowing that the goat was pregnant, he got her into a barn stall and helped her deliver two beautiful kids, even though he was dressed for legislative session.”

Skartados, who was elected in 2008, doesn’t stay overnight in Albany during session days, but drives the 80 miles to his home so he can tend to his small farm.

  1. This guy, while probably having a lot of common scents, doesn’t stay in Albany because no one will get within six feet of him. Very stable personality.
