Vote for Sam Oliverio, Cathy Hanson and me for Town Board. You have to write my name in.
The Town Board will pass their budget the day after Election Day, after very little discussion. They will override the tax cap. They always do. Your taxes will go up on January 1, 2016 because of this board.
This is a $12.783 million budget.
Fire is only going up 1.66%.
Highway is a 0% increase, with $71K taken from their fund balance.
District budgets are going up 10%. Lake Peekskill is going up 8.07%. Lake Oscawana is going up 7.39%. Roaring Brook is going up 24.42%.
No tax increase was discussed at the final district budget meeting. Secret meetings and secret deals have been the norm for this budget process, for this election process. Secret Meet the Candidates meetings – you can’t get invited if you’re not in the cult. Bullying and accusations. A Republican boycott of the public Lake Peekskill Meet the Candidates. No debate on tape. They only debate if they set the rules.
The garbage transfer station debacle. Ms Annabi saying one thing, Mr. Tendy saying another. Secret meetings.
Ms. Annabi saying that she doesn’t agree with Mr. Tendy on anything, then giving him her endorsement for DA. She has faithfully supported her no-show Supe for 6 years.
The Reform Party, whose endorsement gave Ms. Annabi such pride, has a secret donor of $107,900.
A conviction on the Annabi/Tendy 2013 Independence petitions. Tendy in court on his 2015 petitions.
And these legal issues are decided after the elections, and the elected officials are never held responsible.
