Judge issues injunction, blocks fishing license enforcement

This is not a brain storm of the DEC. It is Gov Patterson and the Democratic Seante and Democratic Assembly.

FRNCA announces its first holiday toy, food and clothing drives

Turkey, are we ever going to hear something from Sally other than " I called for an audit"?

I'm not too sure there is much of a "cure" there anyway. I am not that confidant of NYS being able to "correct" anything. And does Sally know how much of an effect the economy has on where we are as opposed to poor bookeeping? The incompetent type of bookeeping that results in a Comptroller being retained at the cost of $1000,000.00 per year with Civil Service protection forever? Sally DID vote for that, didn't she?

And I would bet if the Dems endorsed Karl Rove, you would vote for him. " Oct 2, 09 2:30 PM

Judge issues injunction, blocks fishing license enforcement

Ruby, they are coming here already, nothing is going to stop that and they are an integral part of our economy. No one however from "up west" is going to travel out here to avoid paying a $10 fishing license fee. If they live up west they wil still need a license even if they are fishing in our waters.

Please, I welcome an expansion of you comment "Highway Departement favoritism"
Would you have a farmer come in and plant corn on CR 39 or is it in fact a commercial area and that is where the building of commercial properties are best done?

Southampton Town deputy supervisor confronts, shoves PBA president over comments about budget

Highhat,
Bill Jones is NOT the "second highest elected official in out town" He was not elected to anything he was appointed.Now it is obvious you have police issues based on this and other posts to this board. Let me save you time and trouble. Police powers are given via the state, not the town. Neither your girl Linda, Bill Jones or anyone can "clip the wings" of law enforcement as you so wish.
Can you imagine a world where someone like Linda or Bill can designate which laws local poice can and sghould enforce?
Please note highhat, that no arrest was made nor were charges filed against Mr Jones. So much for police abuse of power as you so feebly attempt to claim. " Oct 3, 09 7:58 AM

Highat,
Officer Aube's "threat" was AFTER MR Jones poked him in the chest. A lesser person would have knocked My Jones down. Officer Aube' merely advised Mr Jones that continued behavior like that could result in an arrest.
I agree with bonac, it is out of character for Mr Jones to behave like that. That does not mean he didn't do it. " Oct 3, 09 4:14 PM

Campaign Diary: Gregor pushes plan for solar panels at town landfill

Republican highway superintendent candidate John McGann said he likes Mr. Gregor’s idea, but said it’s not a new one. The Town Board is already fielding requests for proposals from contractors seeking to install either solar or wind turbines at the landfill.

Did the Press miss the part where it has been shown that this has already gone out as RFPs way before Alex started blowing his horn on this?

Your accuracy in reporting leaves something to be desired." Oct 7, 09 10:14 AM

"I posted a comment yesterday, and it mysteriously never appeared, though I notice Mr. Flanagan, above, has been given his say." I cannot speak for the managers of this web site, you would do well to speak directly to them, I assure you I have no control over such matters.

Mr McGann's response only pointed out the obvious. That this issue has been noted and RFPs have been sent out. Who is being "thin-skinned" here?

I do not know where this talk of a "personal vendetta" comes from. Indeed on Tuesday afternoon Mr Gregor spoke to a mutual friend and raised the same issue. He was assured that I harbor no such feelings. I would be more than happy to sit with Mr Gregor and the mutual friend over some Iced Tea and corn bread ( a la President Obama, the Professor and the Police Officer) to discuss this.

"sup at the town trough"? Now that Team Gregor has insulted municipal workers everywhere, who is next?

Yes my daughter works for the Highway Department. About 3 years ago she applied for a publicly posted position. As she already had a commercial drivers license, she was hired. This is a non-competitive position. I know of no other applicants for the job at the time. And yes my wife works for the Town as Justice Court Clerk. She has been employed by the Town since 1989, for 11 years working as a Police Dispatcher, around the clock as a single mother. In 2001 she took the test for her current position and did quite well, scoring in the top 3. While you are getting personal here, I offer you this: Speak to any attorney who works with the Town Court from either the defense side, or prosecution side, her reputation and her work ethic will speak for itself.

Mr McGann worked in Law Enforcement for 23 years retiring as Lieutentant. By virtue of that service he is entitled to a pension. It is a fixed pension and nothing will change that. Is it your opinion that anyone who receives a pension, annuity, or a return on investments to retire should not seek public office? This "scheme to pad" is a myth.
Indeed Mr Gregor has sought to "sup at the town trough" (your words) on 4 previous occassions, and each time was rejected by the voters. He did for a time serve in the Highway Department. I will leave it to him to address the manner in which he got the job and how it was terminated.

I agree with you on one item. Mr McGann's leadership and management skills are currently being underutilized. We can fix that by voting for him to be the next Superintendent of Highways.

Have a pleasant day.

Please expound on how he has come to know the "nuts and bolts" of the Town Highway Department. And please further tell us which business you are refering to." Oct 9, 09 4:39 PM

Turkey,
Can you tell me where Mr Gregor has any documented management experience?
Can you document where YOU claim it was a personal labor dispute?
He is not pursuing a goal, he is pursuing a paycheck.

Turkey,
Signs are "missing" from everyones campaign and you very well know that. It is indeed infantile but it is a very unfortunate part of the process. " Oct 30, 09 7:41 PM

Turkey,
I didn't accuse YOU of taking any signs. Whether they are hooligans on either side or just miscreants, it it occurring against both political sides, and your accusations that Chris or anyone else is involved is incendiary.
As to your others comments, they are just fluff from Sally's campaign manager.
No specifics, just broad based attacks. I note that no one has attacked Sally, as you have attacked Chris. How long did you spend in public relation or as a media spin miester before getting invloved in electing carpet baggeer democrats?

If things are so bad here, Turkey, why do your NYC people keep retiring out here?

Southampton Town Highway Superintendent candidate John McGann (C,R)

Turkey,
He didn't "catch" asthma from the job. He simply stopped going to work. Never called in, never claimed an illness. He just stopped going to work. Did you ever do that to an employer? I doubt it.
Vicous mailer? It merely reported the truth.
Can you comment on his nominating a non resident of the town for the Town Justice position? Can you explain why he didn't give it to Barbara Wilson?
Your guy is about politics and getting a town paycheck. " Nov 2, 09 10:33 AM

Thats where the jobs are? Have you looked at the payscale of Highway Department employees?

From the 9/27/02 Southampton Press:

Alex Gregor of Hampton Bays was fired by the Southampton Town Board Tuesday, two years after he stopped showing up for work at the town’s Highway Department garage because of health problems.
Mr. Gregor, whose effort to wage a Republican primary for Southampton Town Board member was stymied by a court challenge last month, called the move retaliatory and threatened to sue.

Town officials said a compromise could not be worked out after Mr. Gregor declined offers of two alternative jobs with the Highway Department. Mr. Gregor left his auto mechanic position in 1999 after he said fumes at the town garage exacerbated his asthma.

He said Tuesday he has not collected a paycheck from the town since shortly after he left his post. He said he turned down the alternative positions because “occupational exposures” on those jobs could also aggravate his asthma.

“I liked working for the town and I should not have to leave,” Mr. Gregor said. “We have butted heads in the past. I will go away, but I want to make sure it’s in accordance with the law. If you act in this manner, it’s in retaliation.”

Last year, the three Republican members of the Town Board voted not to reappoint Mr. Gregor as a member of the Conservation Board after they reduced the size of the board from nine members to seven. Mr. Gregor, who had seniority over two others on that board, was the only sitting Conservation Board member not to be reappointed.

Mr. Gregor said he was removed from that board because he ignored pressure from other town officials to go easy on some applications. But Mr. Cannuscio said the Conservation Board had too many members and had become “unwieldy.” He said Mr. Gregor was removed because he acted unprofessionally at times during the bi-monthly meetings.

Most recently, Mr. Gregor’s attempt to wage a primary election challenging the GOP’s candidates for Town Board was derailed after a State Supreme Court justice ruled that he did not properly submit petitions necessary for the primary.

Four of the five Town Board members voted to fire Mr. Gregor. Councilwoman Carolyn Zenk, an attorney, abstained because Mr. Gregor is a former client.

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

I agree with you on this TB. Reading etians other posts reveal him to be the person he is really is,. His issue with the campaigner at Stop and Stop was a total delusion. I know the person involved.
Anytime anyone enters a race for public office, it takes much sacrifice, time and most of all money. Regardless of ones political affiliation in most cases it IS indeed an offer of service to the public and not an ego driven event.
Etians should consider doing more than watching, like maybe getting involved. " Nov 9, 09 1:54 PM

Another newspaper is reposrting the Mr. Nuzzi notified the board on Nov 30 , that he would be out of town for these two meetings.
