Nepotism, favoritism cronyism...ever wonder why you could be the first person in line to get a boat slip at the town dock... when you get to the desk they are all taken. As you walk out empty handed you see people trailing out the back door? Mayor Brennan's funeral home has their lawns done by the partner of an absentee property owner who happens to be the recipient of a high percentage of complaints in the village...yet it's ok?
Lindenhurst employees, administrators, inspectors are on the take and the long term residents suffer. Empty storefronts, syringes on the street, Lindenhurst is a crappy blue collar village and it is going down the toilet
Happy I moved out

Oh really, what took u sooo long to find out. It's always been like this. They need to pass a law that doesn't allow any friends, or family employed by any govt agency that are connected! Even the church gets their snow removed by the village and they don't even pay taxes!! Why to get the funerals in and out easy!! This village needs a new mayor and oust the rest! I say to abolish the village!

Swindlehurst school board was asleep when the $600,000 was stolen as reported in Newsday. The buck is being passed and damage control and CYA efforts have begun. Don't be fooled! They need to be held accountable. Three of these "trustees" are up for election this spring. Vote them out!

Attention Mayor McCheese(Brennan),
Your term is almost up. Get rid of all of these elected board members before a vote comes down to close the village. Then what will happen to these "respected" residents you put in position??

The citizens of Lindenhurst allow all the nonsense to go on because they are uninvolved. They are more interested in greening their lawn and drinking beer on their decks. Get involved or stop complaining. The school budget will be bad this year. Bring back the Taxpac people to keep a better eye on things. More money (INCREASED SCHOOL TAXES EVERY YEAR!) hasn't made our schools better...they continue to drop every year! I'm waiting to hear all the bull that will be put forth to keep these board members elected. Don't be fooled again! New blood is running....

hey 78alum why don't you try reading the audit and than maybe you can post a coherent reason or opinion in stead of "cut & paste" everything. How much did we give teachers in gift cards for "school supplies" from an establishment that doesnt sell "school supplies" oh thats right , it's okay theres no waste here. no bid contracts to friends and relatives , oh thats okay. mis-use of cafeteria funds , thats right again it's okay. who cares!!! all in a 1 yr audit , wow

The Board of Ed has no backbone, the teachers will get whatever they want.

Swindlehurst, Crooked, Scoundrels. That's all I hear from so many commentators, but no one seems to divulge anything with any substance. How about posting some legitimate examples? People say Brennan should go...Why?

Either come up with some facts or...Just Shut Up already. The U.S. Government and it's present administration certainly shows numerous signs of corruption. Our own Governor has already had four strikes, I can go on and on but I don't see the point.

What exactly has the mayor done that is so bad?

As for the school board..Well, perhaps they do show favoritism, but did we not vote them in? Vote them out, perhaps you can do a better job. What would you do?

Swindlehurst is epic center of Ghetto-ville and wellfare.

Lindenhurst is the white trash capital of Long Island.

I have lived in the Village and outside of it in Lindenhurst.

You pay extra for living in the Village, but get worse services than people not paying Village taxes.

The snow removal and garbage collection are TERRIBLE in the Village, but outside the Village, the Town of Babylon does an EXCELLENT job.

It's criminal, along with the nepotism and cronyism. I agree, this should be outlawed.

Cuomo is right on with his idea of eliminating these criminal villages. All they do is rip people off.

Swindlehurst: I like it becuase it keeps all the white skells looser trash in Lindnehurst and not in my town. Forclosures record top levels in Swindlehurst. Wellfare Capital of LI. Degenerates , untrustworthy people, scammers, kids in dirty diapers all over. Unfit parents, schools are the worst.

Swindlehurst is shanty ghetto town for white trash.

Hey anon10,read the audit.Doesn't say one word about a cover up of the cyber theft of funds .That was what my post was referring to.If you have something to say besides "read the audit".I'm all ears. If there was a cover up it's a serious charge. Why don't YOU cut and paste the part saying the school board covered up the theft of $600,000.00 dollars.If it did happen people should pay .
