While the Supervisor was ill, the rest of the town board voted to move the highway funds. The Town Attorney didn't bother to determine the impact or legality of the move. So when it came time to pick up the truck, poor Joe had to BEG for his equipment money back. I guess whoever runs for Supervisor this year had better be resigned to doing the work of the Town Attorney as well. Of course, there are a couple of lawyers on the board. We know that the Supervisor won't take a bribe...wonder how many of the council members would, particularly the one who met with the developer privately. Just sayin...
And two of the votes they refuse to count come from Paul Tonko's nonagenarian parents, who mistakenly used each others envelopes. Probably the only two votes from the home and the ballots are most likely the same so I'm not sure I see any fraud here.
Attorney Brower woke up just in time to avoid another actionable and illegal decision. Didn't mention that Goslin tried to claim he could appoint his own committee, nor that he proposed modifying a PUDD illegally through a board resolution. And the Planning Board Chair just beamed at his protege.another night in ballston
Actually I believe that Jeremy is an enrolled Republican and turned down their repeated offers to run for office. When he ran he did so on the Democrat Line. And yes, Jeremy has a lot more on his hands, particularly this year with the devastation to New York's apple crop. But the reality is that Jeremy got tired of banging his head against a wall, of having his vote negated solely because he agreed with the Supervisor. He has always done what is best for the town, first as a businessman and then as a councilman. There's not a single councilman or woman left who can hold a candle to Jeremy's integrity.
Patti is becoming more and more respected by members of all political parties for the fair and even way in which she deals the residents. She makes choices, not to curry favor, but for the long-term good of the town. The more who see her and work with her, the more respect she earns.
Contrast this to the behavior of three councilpersons who have consistently put the needs of a vocal and politically-connected few over the town. We now have solar laws to make one resident, who has since moved, happy. All that for a vote that won't be there in the future. I'm so glad to have someone who hears all sides, as opposed to those who merely listen.
Can one imagine anything dumber than accusing a public official of working TOO many hours? Of course, much of the 80-100 hours Patti put in this winter is due to the fact that she was doing the bookkeeper's job, you know, the one who got fired for letting Bill hack her records. He brought the same thing up again this week.
Big thanks to the Spotlight for FOIL-ing everyone's time sheets. Did Goslin log in his time at the office from 6-8 am when no one's there?
