Didn't Borgo deny this? This is right off the village website minutes for 9-15-09:

Kathy Kirby of Kirby Bakery is in attendance to request that the Board review the 1% sales tax. Kathy Kirby gives each of the Board Members and the Mayor a copy of the information she has compiled on the 1% sales tax. Kathy Kirby would like the Mayor and Board of Trustees to review each year the amount they are getting from this tax. Mayor Borgo informs everyone that he did meet with Kathy Kirby and he found out that her concern was that the Board would raise the sales tax or add another tax, because Alexander Lumber closed and it was the biggest tax contributor in the Village. The Mayor informed Kathy Kirby and everyone else that his term does not expire for 3 ½ years and in that time he will not recommend or allow an increase in the tax. Trustee Naughton would like to make it clear to everyone that every year when the Mayor and Board of Trustees review all the budget items, they are also looking at the tax rate.

My question also is in the Manhattan American that the were missled by there finance director and they would have voted other wise? Boy if I made crutial mistake like that I would be fired. But not Kevin he was hired by then administretor Tom Pancke. These Channahon crooines could care less about raising taxes...THEY DONT EVEN LIVE HERE? We need to clean house. Also Patti Lucas does not want to raise the phone tax because it would hurt business? The last time I checked there were way more home's then business's? And ussaly business recieve calls, but in here line of work she makes them so of coures she is against it because it would affect her and the other people on the board who own bussiness and work out of there home. she would rather see a gas tax...Patti the last time I looked the gas was $2.99 a gallon and majority of the people work in the city, oh wait again this would not effect you or the board memebers because you work out of your home...I thought you people were for the residents? How about we tax in home bussiness more because they dont get a store front like everybody else, I think the board members would not like that. The board needs to stop thinking about themsevles and how they wont be affected and start thinking about the people who are here paying to much for taxes now...See you tommorow.

The three most dangerous people in Manhattan government: Borgo, Naughton and Lucas. (Biscan is only smart enough to play follow the leader) The two most dangerous Village employees: Gibson and Sing. I'm still depressed.

Agreed! What an example to impress upon a small child. I wonder if the kids can feel the negative vibe from his hand when they are forced to do the shake with him?

We need a Tea Party in Manhattan to get rid of these idiots... and I don't mean we need to bring back the old regime... Doyle ...he was a prick too when he had the power...
You can thank his ass for getting us to root for Borgo in the first place... seems fitting I see him in that convertible JAG...
