Abdelajizm comments on Prestonís 0% tax increase

When asked to comment on Broome County Executive Debra Prestonís 0% tax increase in her propsoed budget, professional protester, Tafreak Abdelajizm, the unqualified ,inexperienced opponent in the county election race, has this to say:

ďI donít understand what Mrs. Preston is trying to accomplish. People's taxes are for us to spend. She should do as I have done, as my buddy Matt Ryan did ,and give her friends salary increases like my huge increase Matt Ryan gave me and the 42% increase he gave Luke Day. I donít understand this concept of not raising tax or not wasting tax dollars.

I wasted millions in The Regency Hotel deal.

I wasted millions in contract negotiations.

I wasted hundreds of thousands of dollars on a useless wifi system that is still currently being negotiated behind closed doors to extend it.

When it came to demolishing the Ross Building Matt and I waste $750,000 or so.

Of course the roundabout was a total waste of money that everyone can appreciate.

My crowning achievement and that of Matt Ryan and all our Citizen Action former city council cronies was the waste of $65,000,000 (yes, SIXTY-FIVE MILLION DOLLARS) OF TAXES ON REPAIRS FOR THE SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANT WE NEGLECTED. Had we spent a hundred thousand dollars or so we could have shored up the plant. Had we been paying attention instead of putting up war clocks or marching with striking Time Warner employees (because of my personal grudge against them TWC) we could have prevented the wall collapse and not sent 500,000 gallons of sewage in the Susquehanna River. But we had our priorities. Public safety has never been one of them. That should be obvious by the 50% increase in violent crime since Ryan and I took office in Binghamton in 2006.

So, again with regard County Executive Prestonís not increasing tax at all I donít get it. I have no experience, no understanding or no desire to do anything like that.Ē

I have a great idea. One that will settle the voters minds. Have Tarik and Preston debate. This will show who is capable and who is not of running the county. This idea is plain and simple but must be too hard for the Preston camp to understand, unless they are afraid people will see just how dumb Preston is.
