Supervisor Puglisi has no vision for the future to prepare the Town of Cortlandt for the closure of this economically important facility.
She has now ten (10) months after the announcement of the closing of the plant, she is seeking help from expensive consultants to continue looking for a “solution.” She states, without knowing what the consultant’s recommendations will be, that her plan is to implement all of their recommendations!
Then, even after the Westchester County Fair Campaign Practices Committee found that Supervisor Puglisi was misleading in her claims regarding her tax record, she continues to mislead the public.
Our taxes have gone up more than 1 percent over the last 26 years, when in just the last several years they are up over 25 percent on just the Town General Tax.
The fact is, Cortlandt Town taxes have gone up significantly and well above her claim of 1 percent over 26 years. Yet she continues to mislead the public. Amazingly, she represented this in her campaign flyers and official Town outlets. She is even using Town resources to make these false claims.
Rather than be an accountable public official, Supervisor Puglisi rants that because her opponent has not personally complained to her in the last 22 years he has lived in the Town of Cortlandt his criticism of her is not legitimate. That is just a strange and arrogant statement to make.
But here is a news flash for Supervisor Puglisi, most residents don’t contact her personally about their tax bill because most of us are overburdened and working hard to pay those taxes and to take care of our families. At no time should taxpayers be dismissed because we did not complain to you sooner.
An elected official who has lost control of the facts does not deserve to be re-elected. Thank you, and I urge everyone to vote for Liam Carroll for Town Supervisor.
