Civic Eyes Forming Village of Hampton Bays

Full story: Patch.com

A group of residents in Hamptons Bays are resuscitating the long talked about idea of incorporating as a village to gain some independence from Southampton Town and have more of a say over their own neighborhoods.

Newsflash....That was Paul....What do you think started the whole Paul problem....He pissed off Rouse,Lesko's little buddy, who defended Rouse by making MB do things they were not required to do. It was cheaper to just do the services then take TOB to court to force them to supply services we already paid for. By the way, Carol has to go, she barely shows up anyway. Failed in every Gov't job she had, she shoulda known this was her last chance.Not to smart Carol..
ummm, yeah. We said this would happen if we became a village. So, why did you vote yes to a village if the TOB was going to "screw"us. It's not their fault. This is government. It's a business. What did you think was going to happen.

<quoted text>And I NEVER said MB got a street sweeper for under a grand just said that NYC auctions them off usually for under a grand....
No, you never did state that they got one for less than a grand,

but, people were questioning the cost of this newly acquired machinery and one person sarcastically asked if it was free; you were the first one putting a dollar figure on the cost of a street sweeper implying thats what it cost.

So why would you even try to imply thats what the village paid?

That was a red herring, didnt really matter as far as the village is concerned.

I wonder if the deal made on this machine was a no bid contract made with family and friends of Gary.

Because I was there when Lsko said that TOB HAD TO provide these services for the first year since we already paid for it, then we contract the town to do it at the same rate. Lesko is the one who lied. I was there. I heard those lies. MB decided to just provide the services rather then take them to court, since it would be cheaper anyway to provide the same services. All of you liars that claim your taxes went up because of the village are idiots. Its the SCHOOL TAX which went up 20% in two years idiots. Stop the lies like you claim the vilage does. Another thing, I am by far not a Gary Stiriz supporter, but I see all the negativity written about him. I am around enough to see, that man kills himself for this village. I think it would be a huge loss to lose a man with his knowledge and passion for this town. Weather or not some things here are true, I say, if your REALLY believe illegal activities have gone on, shut up here and call the District Attorney. If they havent been called because of rumours and false accusations, then shut up. Your opinion here is not really changing anything, is it?? Until one of you "big mouthes" as I have seen it called, stands up and stops hiding here with false accustaions, I dont think anyone will take anything here serious. Post all your accusations one by one with "I have proof". It means nuthin' Take action amd really show us all the illegal activity and I will stand right next to you saying put them in jail. Until then shut up.Thank you.

Heard the first item on the agenda is a recommendation that all employees and elected office holders will be removed if they fail to pay their village taxes on the due date. Too bad this can not be applied retroactively.

Lesko said that the "Town would charge the village the same rate that they charged all the other villages" As smart people know that rate is Time and Materials. Hamlets do not have to pay this extra cost.All you "yes" men (and women) believed the horsesh*t $500K budget and don't seem to have a problem with the close to $5 million budget. We absolutely pay a higher tax rate than Hamlets do. We are not tax neutral as we are being provided with less services than we got from the TOB. Wait until the bills start to accrue for the maintenance of 88 miles of roads. As far as the first year and the TOB, yeah you guys trashed them for three years to get your village and they pretty much turned around and gave us the finger. The village is very fortunate that the TOB repaved all of our roads right before becoming a village. Wait until we find out the price of that bond.

So Lesko lied? Dont all politicians lie?

Sounds more like the people that bought the lies didnt do their homework and RESEARCHED instead of listening to a lying politician. You clam Gary and his cronies bend over backwards for the village and they didnt even do the basic research needed and the taxpayers are the ones getting bent over because of it.

Gary doesnt lie either? No mobile tower or no bid contracts to family and friends with the help of Gary?

I wonder if the village also believed the lie from the street sweeper salesman where he claimed it was only driven to Saint Judes Church once a week on Sundays by a little old lady.

Lesko lied about the village which filtered down to Dan Panico who should of told the truth about the incorporation process.They couldn't wait to get rid of us.The more villages that incorporate the less work for the officials at the town level.We were sold out with a domiono effect of lies and deception at all levels.Panico is right as every hamlet should incorporate so his job as well as all the council personnels jobs will not be needed anymore.As Trump would say proudly [YOUR FIRED}.

Shouldnt have the exploratory committee actually explored what was actually involved with the process of becoming an incorporated village instead of taking the word of a politician?

Brady, just go ask Carol yourself why she didn't pay the taxes. The answer may surprise you. Stop being a fool and just ask her already.
But no, you just like to keep bringing it up. While you are at it, ask Gary why he doesn't pay taxes on that house at his business.

we were lied to at one level only and that was by the MBVEC headed by Paul and Frank F!
The TOB said what would happen. If all you people didn't storm out of the meetings that were held before the village vote you would know that. And it's on video when the TOB told us what needed to be done. No one wanted to believe them because all you wanted was a village and it didn't matter what lies were told to get one. Passing the blame to the TOB and Lesko for the vision teams mistakes??? PATHETIC!!! Take the blame where it belongs... with MBVEC, Frank F, and the vision team!

You would think, but they aren't that smart. They believed what they wanted, they feed us lies and now they are blaming the TOB fo it. Everyone back here knows who lying and it wasn't Lesko. Vote Gary out!!!

When Paul found out the truth and would not follow Frank F and the board, and would not sign checks for the DPW and for things Gary wanted they went behind his back. Lawyer Joe told Paul to ask to see where all the spending went and the PCCA told Gary and the rest of the board to get rid of the lawyer and have meetings behind Paul's back.
When Paul found out and left Gary could now be Mayor but the PCCA and Frank F wanted Bill because he was well liked and Stiriz had to much on his plate.
S0 Bill became Maror but Gary was running things.
Now thet want to get rid of Carol because see asks questions about village spending
I heard that Paul has his health back and wants to run for trustee. He knows what is going on with Stiriz and so does Carol and they both have my vote.
But Gary has to go in 2013!

You,re right. I should just ask her why she didn't pay her taxes when everybody else was required to. You don't think that issue will come up if she runs for office? She probably does have a good reason....let's hear it.

I guess you will ask at the next village meeting? Oh yeah, thats right; you are too good to go to the meetings.

At least I have an excuse of being over 7000 miles away. Thats why I feel minutes need to be updated in a timely manner, at least I can get the official version without Peter Parker Bradys spin on it to make Gary look better.

OMG you should really write fairy tales. You have no idea what happened have you ever gone to a meeting?
If Paul wants to run he must remember he quit once and NO one likes a quitter.
