I have attended many of the fairfeild town meetings.During the recent budget hearing etc. I oberserved crofoot always sitting in the back of the room not making any comments on the town budget. He did however pass notes onto blake/maxwell. What I find most disturbing is that during the first budget hearing the current supervisor put funds in the budget for a cpa that would come form his salary.(which is what is supposed to be done.) There was discussion on it. The town board did not want it but, the people in attendance spoke up and it was put in. This event was prior to the election. At last nights town board meeting crofoot was front and center. When the discussion came about for a cpa blake/maxwell/hilts voted to not reduce the supervisor salary and to put an extra $5,000.00 in the budget for a bookeeper/cpa. What I find disgusting is that crofoot now could speak and he spoke in favor of this which, is his right. Why did he not speak up at the prior meeting. This tells me all I need to know about henry crofoot. Needless to say we the taxpayer are again paying for blake-maxwell-hilts. The only vote against this was sousa. Hopefully it will be a short two years. We can not have these people in charge with no checks/balances. Ed blake and Dennis maxwell should resign now. their actions of the past and present is criminal.

Boy I attended the meeting last night. Can't believe my eyes. Are they all like that one. What a show of stupidity and ignorance by Blake and Maxwell. I now understand why Souza called for them to resign. They are totally lost and have no understanding that the tax payer comes first and nothing comes after that. What they want as people does not count. The town pays the bills and the board and the supervisor are totally responsible to them.
Ed Blake not caring what the voters and tax payers want, getting upset that someone called him an idiot - he is one and proved it last night so she was telling the truth. Nothing like having someone claim you are an idiot and having that person immediately demonstrate that she was right. You go Girl!!!! Ed, guess you never heard of the first amendment that gives everyone the freedom to speak in public and the right to be heard. But then after the meeting I was told that you are a retired cop and Polish to boot so that fits right with your demonstration last night: stupid, idiot and could care less what the people say. Keep it up ED!!
Tom Kohler - "I pay a lot of taxes" REALY - seems the newspaper has you down as delinquent on tax payments. Did you pay up or are you just running your mouth like always and providing lies after lies.
Crofoot - really. Come on. Just wanted to speak up for your own pay raise - great. and the comment that you can do the job. SURE. Last time you came to a meeting before Bill Dillenback dragged you out of the closet was in 2005 when you were paid to be the budget officer and deputy supervisor and everything was done on a spreadsheet. As I recall that year you forgot to include the cost of retirement and the town had to pay 2 payments the next year to correct it. Also remember you as not showing up for most of the meetings. Anyone let you know that it is all done on computer now: Funds transfers, tax payments, retirement reporting, etc. You will have to use the CPA to do the job and get it right so why not have the cost deducted from your salary - Souza would have.
Go Away

When crofoot won, 2 things were clear to me: the voters don't care what happens and they're stubborn. I won't call them stupid. But they are stubborn because you can tell them and show them a thousand times what is going on behind the scenes and they refuse to believe it. And this crap is not even behind the scenes anymore but still they trun they're heads and keep loving those good ole boys and the old girl that pretends to be a clerk. Nope, they just turn around and bend over and ask for another shafting.
I can't believe no one saw this coming. Crofoot wants a raise AND a CPA but doesn't want the funds to come out of his paycheck. What a surprise. Nobody saw him shaking his head at Blake and Maxwell the meeting before the election when the board was deciding on whether to have a CPA and where the funds were coming from? Seriously, nobody saw that?

Its pretty pathetic that you have to pretend to be someone else because your afraid to speak your mind under your own name. At least the REAL Mark Kenney speaks his opinions under his real name and not under some fake name.

You people all need to grow up and move on. It is really starting to get embarrassing for the entire community. Do you not realize how immature and ridiculous you are making yourself look?
