Infighting marks Bellport village board elections

Full story: Newsday

To the casual visitor, Bellport is a clapboard paradise with broad verandas, a quaint downtown and spreading shade trees that with bay breezes provide relief from summer heat.

Ricky,
That $700.00 is just for village taxes they still pay county, school, fire, etc. like everyone else in Suffolk. So, it's $700.00 extra taxes.

Sounds like a grudge that Snead has against Trotta who beat him in an election several years back. What is it with Bellport? The school board can't get along and now small town politicians. Perhaps it's the water?

How can we ever achieve world peace when a small community can't even get along?

I love Bellport. It's good just the way it is. So what if there is cronism and back room deals? That's American politics and that will never change, even if Snead wins, it will just be another cast of characters. I never meet Frank but I know Orlando and he's a great guy.

It never ceases to amaze me how people somehow forget to realize how lucky they are to live where they do and waste valuable time on petty political in-fighting.

The Village of Bellport is so beautiful - I only wish I could afford to live in one of those historical landmark homes within walking distance of the water. These two men need to sit down and iron out their differences, appreciate the beautiful area that they live in, and concentrate on making it even better.

F.D.R. served as President from 1933 till his death in 1945, had he been in better health perhaps he could have doubled his time in office and still fallen short of the Bellport Mayor's 25 years! President Mugabe in Zimbabwe might be closer to the Bellport record, but who in their right mind would challenge that despot. Fidel Castro beats him by 20+ years--and we all know what a political paradise Cuba is! If Obama should falter, Hillary will be up in running for 2012, win and serve 8 years--to be followed by daughter Chelsea who could serve from 2020 to 2028,this lovable family still not achieving the 25 year dynasty mark. I personally favor picking elected officials randomly from the phone book, this however has its drawbacks with the increasing number of people untraceable due to cell phones. This system would have term limits to assure variety.

There are those who confuse 'public service' with 'self service'. If the video of village employees going into his business to empty the trash wasn't enough to shame Mayor Trotta out of office, his letter to the local newspaper should encourage voters to do it for him. Whoever is advising the mayor, reading his letters before he publishes them, is as out of tune with reality as the mayor. No matter what the mayor thinks of a fellow trustee, he makes himself look petty when he takes cheap pot shots at another person. Yes, there is a problem with people getting along on the board, and it sure sounds like Mayor Trotta is a major cause. Let's remove him from office. If things don't improve, we'll do some more pruning next spring.

Bellport is in Suffolk County, NOT New York City!

Snead is doing his job, now Trotta do yours! You are clearly a dinosaur in the age of men. Stop the greed and sloth, you clearly are wrong for taking the village for your health care, by god man you have money, why must you live like a parasite off of us. Instead, rise up and accomplish the tasks of your position or gracefully withdraw because you cant fulfill all the crap that spewed from your mouth during the election year. It really is that simple.

I am truly impartial and I don't want any bad feelings with anyone, but I grew up in Bellport Village and it seems that the Trotta's are always the Mayor and the Grucci's buy up lot's of businesses. It seems the Trotta's and Grucci's want to control everything. Correct me if I'm wrong. I have nothing against them or anyone. I just don't think it's fair that they seem to have way too much control over things and don't let anyone else have a shot at things around Bellport, with all due respect. I must say though I am NOT really up to date with all that goes on in Bellport. I was put in the street just when turning 16 years old by my "mother" Emily Ann Parry(a closet alcoholic formerly Emily; Roubicek, Forbrich, Stong) after my 3rd Father Charles Martin Parry told her "Either she goes or I go" in retaliation for me reporting him at 14 to her. He was following me around my house(shortly after marrying her), asking me inappropriate sex questions & inappropriately touching me. I ended up in New York City with an X Boyfriend since my Uncle John Roubicek, Aunt Dorothy Krakaur, Uncle Joe Roubicek and other Family Members refused to take me in. This is when my nightmare started and my "mother" Emily Parry started turning my Family, Friends, Classmates and Acquaitances against me by vicious lies. She even tells people I have a "drug problem" even though I've never had ANY drug habit in my entire life. I don't drink alcohol, smoke or ever take illegal drugs as I'm very anti-drug(even doctors have a hard time getting me to take prescription medicine)and anti-chemical. I never even date men that drink or smoke socially or otherwise at all! Anyway, I would be living in Bellport Village still if my "mother" didn't do this to me. I miss Bellport Village and everyone there terribly. I feel like my identity has been stolen from me. My Family character assasinates me every chance they get for me speaking out against them for what they've done to me and behind my back regularly too. But like they say..........NO JUSTICE, NO PEACE...EVER. I didn't and don't deserve this major neglect, abuse and otherwise mistreatment and slander. I live as a person with absolutely no Family at all for 30 years now. Who wants a Mother whose closet alcoholism has her choosing a Pedophile over her own child? Not me! She has succeeded in turning my entire Family and most in Bellport Village against me anyway. Since there IS two sides to every story....if anyone wants to know or ask anything regarding this or just to say hello etc., please feel free to email me at VictoriaMStong@Verizon.net . Also, I'm ALWAYS in the phone book here in Long Island City, New York(Queens).~*~*~*~*Respectfu lly & Sincerely,Ms.Victoria Mary Stong /Humanitarian, 9/11 Family Member, Former WTC

"Jay"..........that was really insensitive and mean of you. If you were the victim as I was and am you'd be very angry and without the major restraint and composure I have due to the major victimization I have, had and will be going through no thanks directly to my "mother". IF you had the life I had and have forced on YOU, you'd change your attitude, tune and mentality. You'd be educated enough to know that your statement is uncalled for and very disrespectful ESPECIALLY under my circumstances. IF you had the mother I had you would pray for another one which I have all my life. Anyway, you are tragicly wrong to say that as you don't know what happens behind closed doors. You don't have a drug-addicted mother who actively WORKS to smear and slander you to your entire family and entire community. You need to show some respect! I'm only alive by the grace of God due to Emily Parry's gross abuse and gross neglect whose mistreatment is on a regular basis even as I type this in many ways, shapes and forms due to her vicious lies. For example; she tells people I have a drug problem. I NEVER HAD ANY TYPE DRUG HABIT IN MY LIFE AND THANK GOD FOR THAT! I don't need to turn out like her. 12 Golf Course Road is where she lives with her Pedophile Husband Charles Martin Parry who in retaliation against me told my alcoholic "mother" Emily Parry "Either she goes or I go". My sick, mentally disturbed and twisted "mother" chose him! Let it be known that those that are partial to my "Mommy Dearest" mother lives here happily ever after while I have been homeless and been a victim of over 20 Felonies as a result as she uses my 4 Police Personnel, 1 Retired Court Reporter and other Family members to hurt me unethically, unfoundedly, unwarrantedly and unjustifiedly. This includes False Arrests(with all cases sealed and dismissed dispite Emily's vindictive campaign), False/bogus Family Court Cases and the list goes on. Do you care to hear more details big mouth? You are tragicly wrong to make this remark. You are not significantly negatively impacted by your mother and family as I am. Listen to both sides of a story BEFORE you run your mouth, with all due respect.

How can you even say its both sides of the story? We haven't heard from your mother. I agree with Jay, pick yourself up, brush yourself off and get on with your life. You are obviously stuck somewhere and yes you are in pain but I have the feeling you are enjoying the ride. And if your mother is truly mentally ill, why are you blaming her? Mentally ill people cannot make responsible decisions so therefore you are harboring hate for a person who is sick. hey I didn't pick my parents either. We all get what is dished out to us in life; you can become stronger for it or a whiney baby.

Number one, "My Friend Irma"..........who the heck are you? What's your REAL name? When you give us your real name then you can have an answer to your ignorant comment. Number two, "My Friend Irma", who the heck do you think you are giving me orders etc.? As far as I know we live in the United States of America and not in a third world country where Justice is a lot more expected and accepted unlike in your little world. You have absolutely no idea WHO you're talking to and the extreme victimization I have and AM going through right now still due to an ALCOHOLIC "mother" who choses a PEDOPHILE over her child! That information right there should tell you you need to have some RESPECT! Obviously YOU must also be mentally disturbed to have such a warped and disrespectful way of thinking that you need NOT put your smart-a-s mouth where it doesn't belong. You need to go and get some education so you can know how to talk to people without being a "whiny baby" and speak with some respect and consideration to who you're judging! I am the victim, not the perpetrator and instead of acting out physically like most people do, I chose to do the EDUCATED thing and speak out and fight legally for Justice which is my God-given right whether you like it or not!!!!
Again..........WHAT'S YOUR NAME?
