In case you still haven't had your fill of the deception and mismanagement practices of our BoE , all you need to do is read the latest piece from the always informative NR objectivist called "Your Taxes are Going Way Up" (www.newrochelletalk.com/node/909 ).
Let's not forget , that in the months preceding the school budget , numerous people were questioning the rationale of the board's reluctance to face reality in judging the decline in assessables during this sinking economy . Completely ignoring ALL indicators , including New Rochelle's finance commissioner , the board held the position that declines would be comparable to last years . With complete arrogance they continually lied to the taxpayers knowing full well their manipulated and voodoo economics budget would not play out as they claimed . The cries for relief were summarily dismissed with the "suck it up" comment by the Queen of Twits Emory Schweig . Well , I say they lied because NOBODY could be that IGNORANT of the indicators . So , which is it Mr O and Co? Ignorance or Deceit? In my opinion , they're no better than that sc&mbag Bernie Madoff , lying to serve their own agenda without regard for the devastation left in it's wake .
Things have gotten so bad , the city might consider revaluation (as Mr Ali calls it) . Reassessmant alone won't raise more money, however , I'm sure it would be combined with some other metrics to suck more money out of the taxpayer .
But there IS help out there . NR O's piece references a story by our own Aman Ali . His bold headline states "Tax greivences up in NR , but support for revaluation is not" . In his usual uninformed , unresearched , stenographic style he tackles the far reaching problems of taxes , reassessment and revaluation and our sinking economy and manages to sum it all up in about 150 words. That's amazing Aman . Concise and to the point ?
Not finding any information about lack of support for revaluation in his "reporting" , I get the impression Mr Ali is officially commenting on his personal view of the city raising our taxes . Thank you Aman , it's good to see you lash out against the city for a change . Your support against revaluation is duly noted !
