What was Mr. Astorino smoking when he appointed murphy to commissioner of taxes for westchester county?
She over taxed the people of
Somers for years.
Astorino said he would lower
taxes and cut spending but instead he takes trips to Purto Rico on the taxpayers
Astorino appoints the worst
bureauocrat who cannot be trusted and this is exactly
why westchester is the
highest taxed county in the
People just can't trust
politicians who don't keep
there word and admit being a pot user. We will vote for
Cuomo. View Comment
Now for the very first time after people voted for him for 4 more years as county executive, Astorino now
admits to illegal drug usage
when he was in college.
Why did'nt he tell the people
before they voted for him? If
he was'nt honest about it
then when we voted for him,
why should we believe him now when he is running for
governor of NYS? View Comment
What has either politician done to cut spending and lower our taxes over the past few years? Nothing ! Instead,
Astorino admitted using
drugs and hires the worst
bureauocrat that wasted
millions of dollars on
unneeded projects, unneeded
studies, an consulting fees,
attorneys fees, and over
taxing the people of heritage
hills and now Astirino has
appointed murphy to be our
countys tax commissioner?
He ssys he has stopped smoking pot? Sure Rob. View Comment
Notice that neighter politician
ever talk about fighting corruption within our county or state government? I wonder why? Do they cut
taxes or the out of control
spending? No. Do they cut
personal expenditures? No.
Do they help the people who
struggle to make ends meet?
No. People are leaving NYS by the thousands each year.
How many joints did Mr. Astorino say that he smoked back in college? He must be smoking something pretty strong if he thinks he is going
be come our next governor? Specially, after appointing mary beth murphy to tax commissioner of westchester? While she was supervisor of Somers she over taxed homeowners and businesses, wasted millions of dollars on projects, law firms, over priced consulting
firms, personal expenditures,
new committees, the master plan, and even her forner town board members sued her for selective enforcement, and other constitutional rights violations, and another board member said that she was a liar and ran the town like it was a mafia and not a municipality. She also had political signs removed but she posted her own signs all over town. Do we really need this type of person as commissioner of our taxes? Come on Mr. Astorino you dont really believe that the people are going to vote for u after appointing murphy and admitting your drug usage? View Comment
Like i have said once before, property taxes and school taxes should be based upon ones overall income and there ability to pay, including if they were a senior citizen, disabled or just very low income. The way it stands now, people cannot afford to live in westchester anymore because of out of control spending and out of control tax increases each year. The local municipalities are driving people out of NYS by the thousands while our politicians continue to spend our hard earned tax money.
We have over lapping services and out of control personal expenditures. View Comment
If i were elected governor i would fight day and night for the people and get those taxes lowered ASAP! Id pay for my own vacations and my
Own personal expenses and i would never charge our people a dime for my expenses. These politicians should be ran out of NY. View Comment
All these politicians do is waste taxpayers hard earn money each day! What have they done for the people? Nothing! Have they lowered taxes or cut spending? The answer is no. This is why westchester is the highest taxed county in the country.
Because of do nothing politicians who keep wasting our taxes and appointing more burocrats to high paying jobs at the taxpayers expense. We need honest and trustworthy people in office who fight for the people. View Comment
What have either candate done for the people to lower taxes or cut spending over the past 4 years? Now Astorino appoints the worst type of burocrat (murphy) to be the commissioner of taxes for westchester county? Uneer her rule she over taxed the people of Somers to the tune of 26 million dollars that has to be paid back to the people of Somers as part of a settlement agreement. She wasted millions of dollars on consulting firns,personal expenditures, attorneys fees, unneeded projects, expensive vacations, cell phone bills and all paid by us taxpayers.
Rob Astorino said he does not smoke pot anymore? Sure rob. View Comment
We were going to vote for Astorino until he appointed murphy to the countys commisioner of taxes. Its like putting the fox in the henhouse.
How many times has
murphy been sued? How
many times has she ordered
peoples Pro 2nd amendment
signs taken down on private
property but put up her own candidate signs all over town and in violation of town code.
She claims that the town
owns 15 ft from the black top
when that is yet another lie.
Does this newspaper even realize that murphy had threaten other homeowners who posted signs that supported other candidates for town supervisor in 2011. View Comment
Even former town board
members of Somers have said that murphy is a liar.
In fact at least one former
Town board member filed a
Law suit against murphy
For violating her constitutuinal rights while she was still on the town
board. Another town board
member said that murphy
wasted hundreds of
thousands of dollars on
projects and consulting
companies. Murphy is one of
those good old boys. View Comment
She was the biggest crook and constitutional rights violator in Somers and hurt so many people over those 15 years in office.
She did'nt care who she hurt, including former town board members who sued her.
Now others are suing her. View Comment
Even though both county and local towns in Westchester have the highest taxes in the country, our county officials and local municipalities continue to raise taxes and spending each year, therefore they are not working in the best of interest of the people.
The people are sick and tired of the outrageous taxes and over whelming land restrictions on homeowners
property. Why are people paying such high taxes when there are so many unconstitutional zoning
restrictions? View Comment
When will Westchester ever have open and transparent government? When will county officials and employees be held accountable for their own actions? When will the BOL
stop all the wasteful spending and start a committee that oversees and monitors all spending ? View Comment
