Excellent move Beep. By the way your article in the paper was super. More and more of the townspeople are joining in to find out for themselves just what the issues are here. Something is rotten here.

I agree, but think of it this way, everyone has seen their true colors! With all the lies flying and everything else that has happened, they don't stand a snowballs chance in hell of ever winning an election again! A couple of them may as well walk away now rather than drag it out!! It's time for change!!!!!!!!!!

After the bridge vote, the Supervisor should be made to answer many, many questions about his actions.
HE HAS TAKEN SIDES, AND IS PUSHING TOO HARD IN THIS SITUATION. He speaks as our Supervisor and to come out this strongly says something is fishy here.
Doesn't that make you wonder why, if NOTHING else does?

If the bridge vote fails maybe we should look into starting a village government here like our neighbor towns remsen and boonville.If people in the outskirts of the village can not agree to fix the town's infrastructure . We can't just let the town crumble,whats next close town hall and let that historic site go to hell too?

Town website - May 9th minutes clearly state trucks can use bridges. Why is the town supervisor lying to us on the radio and in the papers?

That is a VERY VERY GOOD QUESTION .......
We will find the answer when we vote to have the Board bond for the cost of the repairs that now cost us more than they should because of INCREASED DECAY OF THE BRIDGES.

Why would our supervisor lie to us all in that false data he has his name on? Those of us at that meeting heard loud and clear that the bridges could support the vehicles after the repairs, as they always have for years.

Lies, lies, lies.... and why?

Think so Paul? You may be right, but then only time and a positive vote today to save the bridges will bring this out. We will have to watch and see if you are right!!

I don't want to sound like I am against any particular individual when I site these figures.
These totals are for all the town employees who get benefits.
Over the prior budget periods the cost for insurances for our employees is as follows.
237,000+
325,000+
351.000+
388,000+
Budget hearings used to be open to the public, but the public cannot have input, only listen in the meeting.
Does that still apply today does anyone know?
i'll signfor it all about time pll spoke up,&stopped being whimps

When people know these things, how do they handle them? How does one try to make others aware of the things they don't always see because they are so dang busy trying to make a living for their families and in some cases just to survive today?
As so many people are finding out now, you can't reach out and touch any govt. It used to be you had some effect locally, but to do that today,it comes at a great personal risk. So what do you do, let things slide because you don't have the guts to address serious issues that affect us all?
Yet, it all begins here folks, in this town. This is the place you can be most effective, in your own back yard. Forestport needs to be LOOKED AT CLOSELY. IT NEEDS THE PEOPLE'S ATTENTION AT ALL TIMES. If you love it........pay attention to it!! AND get involved.
Our elected officials should always be available to us. wE PLACE THEM THERE TO CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY, NOT THEIR PERSONAL INTERESTS........THE INTEREST OF THE TAXPAYERS.
The last town board meeting was a disgrace when people in attendance at that meeting were denied their right to speak on a subject they needed to hear from their governing body about.
DO YOU REALIZE THIS ACTION HAD STIFFLED FREEDOM OF SPEECH? RIGHT HERE IN OUR BACK YARD!! What is coming next?
thats why pll don't like ruth L because shes been trying to wake the pll up to this crap,noqw maybe u;ll all listen to what shes been saying for yrs.is this town full of cowards or are they gonna wake up befor we loss our town to dirty corrupetion

Thank you MMME for understanding that one cannot always be POPULAR when there are serious issues that need to be attended to, and that others may not know of because they are busy trying to make ends meet day to day. THIS ACTION THAT BROUGHT THE OPPORTUNITY TO YOU AND I TO MAKE A CHOICE CAME AT GREAT EXPENSE TO SOME CARING PEOPLE. THEY CARED ENOUGH TO RUN THAT RISK TO URGE OR INSPIRE YOU TO GET THE FACTS.
The talents that are given you should be shared to make things better, not used to screw those who either don't care, are too busy trying to make a life for themselves and their families or those trying to financially hang in there.......
If there is nothing wrong with what you check out, then you have learned to trust.
If there is proof that there is definitely something wrong and you can alert someone else to the truth or inspire them to seek the truth themselves........THAT IS WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT.
Thank you again mmme. You have helped make it possible too. We all owe that to OUR FORESTPORT.....LOVE IT, PRESERVE IT, LEAVE IT'S RICH HERITAGE FOR THOSE THAT FOLLOW, NOT IN SHAME, BUT IN PRIDE. Ruth L.
