Ken LenzRumors are a jumping point for reporters, some take everything they hear as truth and run with it, others ask questions before posting a story.

Today at the grand opening of the Stony Creek Urgent Care Center, someone nudged me and asked… “Have your heard?”

The rumor was that Ken Lenz, an attorney, member of the Orange Lions Club and the Orange Players and a longtime friend of mine, is going to challenge First Selectman Jim Zeoli in the November Municipal Election.

Seeing that Ken was attending the ribbon cutting ceremony, I figured there’s no time like the present, and I asked him directly… “Are you?”

Ken would not confirm nor deny if the rumor was true, but did tell me that he’d been approached by the Democrats and he had spoken to the nominating committee. BUT he would not make any statement or announcement until the proper time — after the Democrats have completed their slate and officially release it to the public on Monday night.

I do like Ken as a person and as a valued friend, and I get along with Jim very well and I respect both of them, but let me make it clear that I stand by the statement I made on Orangectlive.com after I opened the site last year — I do have a political policy in place and I will not endorse any candidates for any office State or Municipal.

That said, let’s wait until Monday to see who is on the Democratic slate for 2013.
