Will he, or won't he?

Embattled State Senate Majority Leader (maybe) Malcolm Smith for weeks has been listed as the featured speaker at the Jefferson County Democratic Committee event at Watertown's Northside League Friday evening. One can't imagine a politician with a plate fuller than his right now. Will he show up or not? I'm guessing that he is a man of his word and he will.
There is also a rumor floating around that influential Congressman Steve Isreal will attend. JD will report.
Everybody present will be able to renew aquaintances with our County Judge of longstanding Kim Martuesewicz and meet our County Clerk candidate Gertrude Karris. All the candidates for the County Legislature will be onboard as well. Remember this is a Democratic Party event so there could be a couple of surprises too. After all, that uncalled special election for the 23rd Congressional seat is waiting in the wings. Stop by and check out who is schmoozing.
Its at the NSIL so you know the food will be good. Bring your appetite for turkey, ham, mashed potatos and politics.

Post Script--He didn't!
