Kabot's proposed $78 million budget will eliminate 48 town jobs next year

People, we need that 4th Judge... to handle all the criminal cases from Kabot and her staff!

She is personally keeping all the lawyers in town in business... and then some.

Are we sure who's paying the bill?" Oct 8, 09 3:14 PM

so let me get this straight... Sam WONT vote for Anna because of "those obnoxious life-size poster boards"... but he WILL vote for a public servant who drives drunk, shirks personal responsibility, and has spent 13 years helping to run our government into the ground.

What's wrong with this picture?" Oct 9, 09 10:38 AM

wait... so tookatz is a gossiper or liar for talking about a 10K rug... but an anonymous, third-hand letter is proof that the cops framed Linda? What are you people smoking?" Oct 9, 09 10:45 AM

keep drinking the kool aid dude. you're delusional" Oct 9, 09 10:47 AM

Um, excuse me but wasn't Anna the one who demanded the audit that uncovered all the missing $... which is still not accounted for?

And last time I checked, the Supervisor proposes the budget, not the council.

I'm not even an Anna supporter. I think all of them should step aside. But you can't blame people on a council for 9 months when Kabot has been involved for 13 years." Oct 9, 09 1:52 PM

Quogue Village mayor pleads guilty to securities fraud

Kabot will soon be available for the job," Oct 13, 09 10:55 PM

Southampton Town personnel grew while revenues were abundant

i thought democrats were supposed to be the ones who spend and create socialist welfare states. Seems like the entire town is a government-run business.

Heckuva job, Linda! And Skip!" Oct 15, 09 3:12 PM

Southampton Town board gets details of forensic audit report, creates audit advisory committee

Linda says that she and the board decided not to pursue litigation... Against whom? herself? What a farce." Oct 16, 09 5:32 PM

Throne-Holst missed campaign finance filing deadline

ATH has already done one thing Kabot has yet to do in 15 years on the job: apologize and own up to a mistake - even though it's a miniscule one compared to things like DWI and gross fiscal mismanagement.

But hey - Kabot "is under public scrutinty now" - as one genius posted - so you know she'll do a great job!" Oct 23, 09 12:20 PM

Southampton Town candidates debate town finances, services

maybe, just maybe, we wouldn't have gotten into this budget mess if Linda and her pals had been "working tirelessly and around the clock" (her words, not mine) for the past 6 years instead of the past 6 weeks.

It would be so refreshing to have her say once - just ONCE - that mistakes were made on her watch." Oct 28, 09 7:58 PM

Judge orders DA's office to investigate alleged call made following Linda Kabot's DWI arrest

yeah... we don't any speculation in our court system - such as Judges (politically appointed) ordering investigations into anonymous letters with third-hand conspiracy claims in them. You're right, i am so glad there's no speculation like that going on here." Oct 28, 09 8:00 PM

you're right. it was southampton publick house! " Oct 28, 09 8:01 PM

why not? thats exactly what Kabot's supporters did with the anonymous letter. What's to stop anyone from just claiming they heard something from someone somewhere.

the point she's making is that none of it is OK - and that real issues exist like our $11 million missing money that she still wont or cant account for." Oct 28, 09 8:04 PM

of course we pay for it... she's taking her time with the budget so she can find a place to hide the $... maybe put some of it back into the animal shelter. she can drive the dog catcher truck" Oct 28, 09 8:07 PM

Kabot's court date is pushed back to December

remember when this story broke and Kehon swore kabot would be vindicated and cried how unfair it would be to postpone until after the election? Now he's the one asking for the postponement!

What a farce." Oct 29, 09 1:00 PM

well said. NO ONE made this an issue except her. This has nothing to do with what any other politician says or does... she got busted for DWI. Her lawyer pretty much demanded an expedited trial... and then backtracked. facts is facts, has nothing to do with others." Oct 29, 09 2:31 PM

if she was innocent she would have taken the breath test right there on the spot and put an end to all this nonsense. she didn't take the test, and now her defense team is just playing games - Keystone Kops. So utterly transparent and clumsy - just like her management of our town." Oct 29, 09 2:38 PM

Actually, i HAVE been in her position. I took the breath test, passed at .03, shook hands with the officers and went about my business. You have no idea what my political beliefs are - whether you're democrat or republican the act of driving drunk, as a leader of a community, is abhorrent. If she'd only own up to her mistake and show a little humility - instead of blaming everyone from cops to the press - then maybe we could move forward and deal with the real issues here - namely, her gross and possibly criminal mismanagement of town finances." Oct 29, 09 3:53 PM

Of course. It's perfectly OK to circulate conspiracy theories about anonymous letters claiming the police and ATH framedd Kabot - but god forbid anyone should even raise the issue of whether an elected and paid employee is using town money to pay for drivers, sick days etc. Sacrilege!" Oct 30, 09 9:31 AM

No sir - the point is that standard levels do NOT fluctuate. You're the one assuming that someone critical of Kabot has to be a Clinton supporter, by definition. Facts are facts. Getting sex in the White House was naughty and immoral, and Clinton paid a price for it. DWI is a criminal act, and it's totally legit to point that out. there's no double standard at all." Oct 30, 09 2:01 PM

dont you understand that the supervisor, NOT the council, is the one who manages the town finances? What difference does a political contribution make? Kabot was in charge during much of this mess. No one else. That's a fact. Deal with it." Oct 31, 09 8:46 PM

its like trying to reason with a 3-year-old. there is no logic or honesty at all." Oct 31, 09 8:47 PM

who cares about endorsements. Where's our missing money? Why isn't there a criminal investigation into those who "lost" it? Why won't Kabot or whoever controls the audit release it for the people to see? " Nov 1, 09 11:33 AM

Throne-Holst outraised Kabot in election campaign, though supervisor outspent her challenger

I believe it's the SUPERVISOR'S job, not the council, to propose and manage the budget. That's why they call it supervisor. So it's totally disingenuous to ask what ATH or Nuzzi or anyone else has cut from the budget. They don't have the power to do it.

A better question might be: where would we be today if ATH hadn't at least asked questions about the town finances - Kabot and her Klowns would probably still be out there claiming we had a surplus." Nov 2, 09 1:07 PM

Now I've seen it all. Golfbuddy claims that ATH has a problem getting along with others? How about these tidbits involving Kabot:

* Lost her own party's endorsement
* Got a DWI bust and now claims it's a police conspiracy
* Misplaced over $10mm and didn't even realize it until others prodded her - then blamed it all on predecessors and others
* Had a public run-in with a councilperson (and her political rival) remove her dog from a building
* Presided over a meeting in which one of her hand-picked budget flunkies almost came to blows with someone in attendance

The point is, if you're going to break down a candidate on divisiveness and getting along with others, then surely there is no other figure in this town who even comes close to Linda in that department.

Just read these posts!" Nov 2, 09 1:16 PM

"Kabot's Kampaign is not running at a deficit" - maybe it's just another case of her not being able to count the money?

1. here is a link to read an article about Linda's own combative, divisive fights within her own party. You better believe we all read it: http://www.27east.com/story_detail.cfm?id=198293

Of course, Linda was able to make a backroom deal to "straighten it all out"... but backroom deals are her specialty, right?

2. "Many people believe it was a setup.." how many? You and 3 other family members? keep drinking that Kool Aid dude!

3. Past comptroller cooked the books... ah yes... of course... it was a rogue comptroller and Linda had no knowledge of anything even though she was the right hand deputy of the supervisor at the time. of course! And how would you or anyone know what the auditors uncovered - Linda has refused to show the report to anyone or even consider criminal charges... because she'd probably have liability herself. or certainly her cronies.

4. Never had a public run-in with ATH? Here's another article - since you're such a good reader - to refresh your recollection on how Kabot turned a public meeting into a contentious spat about a DOG in town hall: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/regional/political_dogfight_GEAutYDhESQ4rwpMTvR4lM

5. You're right. The altercation took place in a hallway, not inside the actual meeting room. Big deal - the fact is that one of her own cronies - i mean deputies - almost got into a public fistfight when challenged about a budget issue. Most people would call that very confrontational - and while it wasn't Linda herself it certainly speaks to the type of people in her inner circle.

Kabot has nothing to run on. She's a divisive character who hides from the truth, shirks any responsibility, and sees conspiracies from her enemies.

Sounds a lot like Richard Nixon; at least he knew how to balance a budget.

Throne-Holst defeats Kabot; Nuzzi and Malone beat Pope and Fleming

Now THAT is some seriously deranged logic... Last time I checked, the so-called Hollywood bleeding heart liberals have been around here since the 1970s.

And by the way - none of them actually vote here, because this is not their primary residence. What they do is pay huge taxes - that support the bloated budgets created by our lousy public servants. Hopefully that will change someday. " Nov 4, 09 11:11 AM

Yeah... it's Orwellian to take $2500 in contributions from the police... They are taking over our sleepy town, with Anna as their Trojan Horse. I bet she has a direct line to Obama and his secret socialist cadre. Did you think of that yourself or get it from a Glenn Beck talking point?" Nov 4, 09 11:27 AM

Kabot says a new door is opening for her... hopefully it's at the town jail." Nov 4, 09 11:28 AM

Hmm. So one female candidate will "preen" in office - before she even takes over - when we just had another female supervisor in office. Did "the boys" allow kabot to spend us into the ground? If that's an example of "depth and ballast" then I would take ATH's so-called preening 10 times out of 10.

As for taxes, they've already raised them as high as allowed by the law - 2 years running. " Nov 4, 09 12:44 PM

Check Kabot's phone records! Quick! I saw her make a phone call right around that time. I'm a single dad raising 5 kids in a wheelchair and i'm going bald, so you know I'm a reliable source!" Nov 4, 09 12:45 PM

Report: Missing firearm led to inquiry; Two Westhampton Beach Police officers suspended

where are all the posters who were claiming this was directly related to Kabot's "set up" DWI bust? Maybe if there had been a third-hand anonymous letter it would have been true." Nov 4, 09 4:54 PM

Throne-Holst unseats Kabot as Southampton Town supervisor; Republicans maintain board majority

You would have to be living in outer space to not notice that all these problems have been RAMPANT with Republicans and Kabot in charge.

Taxes? how about 5% increase each year - the most allowed by law. Thanks Linda!

Police earning too much $? totally agree - and it takes them 20 years to get there, which means most of the cops were hired while Republicans - and certainly not the supervisor-elect, were in power.

Illegal Immigrants? Yeah, they've never been here before, right? Or maybe you think there are guys all over Central America reading the SHP on their laptops, just waiting for Anna to get in power and come here.

Anyone with even a hint of honesty can see that Kabot was a divisive figure who ran the town into the ground. And now others are left to clean up the mess.

Grieve on!" Nov 4, 09 5:03 PM

sure... thats it... people got "confused" because of all the extra lines in the ballot box. As if we're not capable of reading "Kabot" vs. "Throne".

Maybe Linda would have had more lines if she hadn't lost her own party's support by being such a divisive character.

The excuses and rationalizations never end!" Nov 5, 09 9:41 AM

i dont think she was suggesting that we close the schools - but it is kind of ridiculous how much $$ is spent on projects here. I believe we spend more on schools, per capita, than anywhere else in the state. The cops are massively overpaid. We're building a $7mm brand new firehouse.

It's not a Kabot or ATH thing, We just got used to having a lot of $ from all the mansions and real estate sales taxes. We can't rely on that anymore." Nov 5, 09 9:46 AM

You would have to ask that question of Linda Kabot and the previous town board - they were the ones who opted not to pursue legal action against anyone. Without a public hearing or disclosure of the audit, we have no reason why.

Perhaps the new board and supervisor will look into that. Of course, the same ranters will cry sour grapes and play politics - and all of us will still be out 15-20mm dollars." Nov 5, 09 9:49 AM

Lawyers are expensive - but give the fact that we're out some $15mm it might be worth spending a few thousand dollars to take a look. the point is, when the entire audit and decision-making process is veiled in secrecy, we have no idea who really did what. they just keep their jobs and go about their business like it never happened.

And I believe that the decision not to pursue legal action was taken after they reviewed the audit - which makes it even more troublesome." Nov 5, 09 11:17 AM

Of course they would expose all the negligent if not criminal practices. That's why Linda and Co. decided not to pursue it - behind closed doors and with no public discussion.

Wrong. Kabot is their kind of woman because she's a liar, a drunk driver, and a horrible financial manager who blames the world for her failings.

ah yes... another conspiracy! of course! I bet the cops transported all the people who were living there and planted them all on the property. Now you're onto something!" Nov 15, 09 9:30 PM

Sam,

go dig for dirt on ATH. I welcome it. PUBLIC FIGURES - leaders in our community - should not be associated with stuff like this and DWI busts. It's an ongoing pattern with her.

And when it happens, all you have to do is apologize for it and take some meaningful action to put a stop to it - but Linda won't do it - another troubling pattern." Nov 16, 09 5:05 PM
