The Peoples Republic of
Crumm Mountain NY
Wedged uncomfortably in the mountains of Upstate NY's Central Leatherstocking region, Crumm Mountain has become notorious as a mecca for freaks, intellectuals, punk rockers, anarchists, and just about anyone disaffected with society in some way, shape, or form.    With a rich history steeped in working class action, including several general strikes, and a highly active socialist party, the city continues to lead the proletariat to its destiny with it's current Mayor Stan Grossman, of the Social Democratic Labor Party.

(The Real News)
Oct 1 2002
Mayor Stanley Grossman vows to use state aid to build a public housing facility for the homeless and destitute to temporarily house individuals while they get back on their feet.   The plan had been in the works for several years, but Grossman insists that it is needed now more than ever.   
City Elections a big win for the SDLP.     They held on to all their seats, and even picked up one.   Bernadette Chapman, a former Assistant City Attorney beat Republican incumbent Burt Schrader in the Gordon Heights seat formerly held by Mort Devereaux.
Schrader, only 28, was considered the Republican Party's only hope of winning the mayoralty.   Even though he lost, he may yet be a candidate for the 2004 race.    
Dec 02                                                                                                                                             The Central Committee of The Crumm Mountain Republican Party plans to announce Ray Selleck's successor for party chairman, within a week.   Selleck's successor will assume office as soon as Ray Selleck officially resigns as Chairman, which he has vowed to do as soon as the committee lines up a replacement.  
     Among the five-member Central Committee, support seems to be strongest for a hard-line conservative such as Ed Adams, or possibly Shane Bryant.   The more conservative members of the committee, Roger Lacroix, Dennis Felipe, and Ivan Cole are rock hard behind Adams, with the possible exception of Cole, who has expressed interest in seeing the position go to Shane Bryant, a much more conservative Republican.     Andrew Wilson and Gale Miller, although staunchly conservative, feel that a right wing party will alienate voters.   They want somebody who could be a little more versatile.   They are agreed that Ed Adams probably wouldn't be the best man for the job.   They would prefer former Common Council member and mayoral candidate John McAllister.  McAllister isn't sure however if he really wants to be the party leader.   In which case Miller and Wilson would throw their support behind another moderate Republican.   Either Drew Davidson, considered a longshot, or  Bobby Wawrzcuski, a newly converted Republican, a former Libertarian.   Considered an even longer shot.   Roger Lacroix, has said that he might be persuaded to vote for John McAllister, if he is certain that he is interested in the position.
