What positions is he creating? How do you start a post like this and then just put,"more to come"? As usual you are just stirring up trouble. I think you are nuts!

Can I ask everyone on here a question? How come you can never actually go to Mr. Stephens or anyone in the village for that matter, and ask them, instead of coming on here and making rumors? Instead of starting trouble and making yourselves look stupid, why don't you ask these people? They are elected officials who are there to represent us. They are supposed to be there to answer your calls and listen to your "complaints" on how you think the village should be run. As I don't see any of you stepping up and putting yourself out there to be elected as these officials have, that's when you have to go to these people and talk to them about these issues. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to talk to you about it because your input is what keeps the village running. It's what the people want and the officials decide on what they think is right and best for the village, based on what you want. Instead of spreading rumors and lies and acting like you're in elementary school, be big boys and girls and actually go to these people. That's what they are there for!

I agree that every Ilion taxpayer should go see their permanently & fully disabled mayor working in his office at the municipal building every day.

But don't go if it is snowing out because the disabled mayor will be out working and driving a dpw plow to clear driveways of certain friends.

If he is still not there working in his office then there must be a fire someplace in the village and he is at the scene in full fire gear working as a volunteer fireman. Fully disabled of course.

As you state above, you said he "clears driveways of certain friends?" and how do you know he was actually doing that and not plowing? Just because you can't see his disability (such as missing an arm or leg) doesn't mean he isn't disabled. Just like you're apparently mentally disabled for starting rumors. If you've actually ever been to a fire scene, please tell us EVERYTHING that the Mayor does at a fire. I'm sure, according to you, that he's inside the building saving lives and all the stuff he shouldn't be doing, right? Get your facts straight instead of, once again, hiding behind your computer screen cause you're so big and bad hiding behind it.

Not really, it's just ridiculous that all of you are more than happy to voice your opinions and lies behind your computer screen, which does absolutely nothing, yet you're all too lazy to get off your fat asses and actually go to a board meeting to actually do it face to face with the board, where it might actually do something. Since apparently no one goes to board meetings anyway, the board has no input from the public, so if you think they're ruining Ilion, go to a board meeting. It's not a hard concept to grasp. The board will obviously listen to what you have to say, and if you're wrong, they'll probably explain why. You think these people are out to destroy Ilion, which to be honest, was destroyed when they wanted to "modernize," but they are trying to do what's best for the village, which once again turns to the residents. If you don't go to a board meeting, then your voice isn't heard... plain and simple. Go to a board meeting, and maybe your idea's will be heard. Use that thing between your ears people, it's called a brain and is there for a reason, which everyone on here probably has a huge open space there anyway. You people are ridiculous.

This sounds like the basic concept of a democratic society and should apply to all organizations, unions, clubs etc. Bottom line is you have a voice, you have a vote. If you don't use them and you don't like the way things are going, there is no one to blame but YOU.

Doesn't anyone have anything better to do than start ridiculous threads based on hearsay and gossip? If you are going to have even an iota of credibility back your "information" up with actual facts. Before you ask, no, I am not a relative, an employee, or even a "good friend", I just find nonsense like this to be the very thing that keeps people talking about things that don't matter and ifnoring the things that do.

Do you go to the meetings? Thought not. How is living in that glass house of yours?
nepotism

New York, NY

#13 Mar 23, 2011
If the Mayor has to comply with NYS public officer law, then nepotism is a violation - he would need to get the rest of the board to vote the person in. Not saying it doesn't happen....

Public Officers Law 73.14 (a) provides as follows:

No statewide elected official, state officer or employee, member of the legislature or legislative employee may participate in any decision to hire, promote, discipline or discharge a relative for any compensated position at, for or within any state agency, public authority or the legislature.

He say he inhaled bad fumes while he was a fireman in Little Falls and has brain damage from it, but we're hearing he was about to get dismissed becuase of something he did there and pulled the on-the-job injury routine at the last minute.

Bad fumes ? Then why does he go to fires in Ilion as a volunteer fireman ?

Can't work ? Then why does he have an office at the municipal building and can go there everyday for many hours ?

Can't work ? But admits on television that he did DPW snow plowing using a village truck during the storm a few week ago ?

Can't work ?
