Blissful Ignorance on Town Board
Some might call this blissful ignorance and others pure arrogance. Town resident and former Supervisor candidate Ron Sinico stood to inform the Board that they had violated the Ethics Law by appointing their Town Republican Party Chairman to a salaried position as attorney for the Planning Board. The law he read was pretty simply and was quickly found on the internet. It reads "
“No salaried Town employee shall act or serve as a political party chairman.”(S13-5)
Finally, lets give them a Profile in Courage Award for their next silent response. They were asked if anyone on the Board wanted to go on record as opposing the recent $260,000 tax giveaway to the Cole Collision Center being built on RT 4 by the County IDA. Sometimes silence is as good as a press release supporting this mindless giveaway of our tax dollars to a developer. Not unexpected as Lou Desso solicits $1000.00 contributions from folks, mostly developers and contractors at his recent fundraiser. Money talks loudly to Lou Desso from contributions to his own 16% property tax reduction and reassessment.
