Civic duty to observe budget

in

To The Editor:
Are you really concerned about your property taxes? The Middletown Town Board is holding a public hearing on the town budget on Wednesday, Nov. 9, the day after Election Day, at 7 p.m. at the Middletown Town Hall on Route 28, Margaretville.

Attend this important event and make your views about the amount you are paying for property taxes known and insist on the board reducing the cost of local government and your taxes. Also insist on clarity and transparency in the budget so that true proposed expenses are explained clearly.


Voters should be aware of salaries

in

To The Editor:
As I posted information in the last week’s paper, regarding salaries of elected officials. Some of the information was unavailable to me, however, I do believe we as taxpayers should be aware of the most recent news.

Regarding the Town of Andes Assessor, not only does Tina Moshier, the Andes Assessor, receive that whopper salary of $$41,906 but Mrs. Moshier also gets health plan paid for in full by the Andes taxpayers in the amount of $16,000 put that together and we taxpayers are paying $57,906.


Bud Gladstone is well qualified

in

To the Editor:
I am writing in support of the candidacy for Town Board of Andes of my neighbor, Wayland “Bud” Gladstone. I cannot think of a better addition to the board nor can I recommend him highly enough for this position.


Marge Miller is prepared

in

To The Editor:
Thank you, Catskill Mountain News, for sponsoring the very informative debate Monday night between the candidates for Town of Middletown Supervisor.  


Supports Bovina candidates

in

To The Editor:
In my opinion, Bob Burgin is the most qualified candidate for the job of Bovina Highway Superintendent.

Having worked with Bob over the last 25+ years, in our auction business, as fire chief, as a highway employee and as highway superintendent, I have seen him grow and mature into a man with great integrity, leadership ability, knowledge of his job, organizational skills and ability to work with others.


Offers apology for actions

in

To The Editor:
I attended the Andes Town Board meeting on October 11. I interrupted the meeting.
I apologize to Marty Donnelly, town supervisor, and the Andes Town Board.
I understand the pain my words caused Mike Adams, highway superintendent, Kimberly Tosi, his daughter, and Sandra, Mike’s wife. I deeply apologize for the harm I have done.

Joe Sicinski,
Andes


Questions high salaries in Andes

in

To The Editor:
Shame on the Andes Town Board and Supervisor!

As a taxpayer of the Town of Andes did you know? Keep in mind the number of residents in the Town of Andes compared to other townships in Delaware County.

Town Councilman – Shayne Moshier is making $4,250 a year (Second highest paid in Delaware County) Assessor – Tina Moshier (wife) is making a whopping $41,906 a year (Highest paid in Delaware County) Tax Collector Margaret Moshier (mother) is making $8,240 (Second highest in Delaware County)


Disillusionment growing with DEC

in

To The Editor:
Growing up in our country, through 70 some years of my lifetime, I’ve always believed that the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation, and all the regulatory agencies of the government, would protect us. Now we find out, that for some time, this has not been true.

Governor Cuomo and President Obama have bowed their heads, closed their eyes, and joined forces with other politicians who turn their backs on clean air, clean water and global warming.


Become engaged at Onteora

in

To The Editor:
On behalf of the Onteora Board of Education, I am writing to invite you to join the newly established Legislative Action Committee.


Keep politics out of situation

in

To The Editor:
I would like to comment on Mona Lee Sheehan’s article in the Mailbag a few weeks ago, “Tea Party’s influence is appalling.” She makes the comment that it is the Tea Party that is stopping congress from passing a bill that would found FEMA to help the flood victims.
