The rest of the board is so effective. Puhleese! We have more sex offenders, more sh!tty section 8 renters, property values have gone down and keep going down, More foreclosures than home sales, less businesses on Neighborhood Rd.(which for some reason looks way worse than before we became a village (I mean really can you not figure out how to put the garbage cans and planters on the sidewalks in an organized fashion? How about making sure your Mastic Beach Village stickers are not all coming unglued and look terrible. How about cleaning the sidewalks and streets every once in a while? or can we get the Christmas decorations out of the town square by January 6th? not weeks later)The paved roads are not being maintained and are starting to crumble along the edges where they are not mowed and the streets are never, ever swept by the village DPW. There are missing street signs everywhere. The stop signs are falling over and none of the storm drains are cleaned. Code enforcement has been on hiatus since Sandy yet we are paying them all these months for not writing any tickets. Oh wait the few tickets they have written are to enemies of the village yet all the "Friends of The Village" are doing work all over with nary one permit between the whole lot.<quoted text>Why don't you worry about this election first. Carol is running on the I don't care about paying my taxes on time, why should you party. I will be amazed if she gets elected. Even if she did manage to get enough votes, she would be as ineffective as before.
So Although I agree Carol has not been effective neither have the other 4 board members. None of the problems this village was supposed to address have been addressed. I really do not give a rats ass about how well they are doing cleaning up storm damage as this was never an issue when the TOB Highway department was in charge. They mowed the sides of the roads, paved the streets, swept the streets, picked up dumped trash when called and made aware of where it was, plowed the entire width of the the road and cleaned out the storm drains. All on a regular basis throughout the year. All without patting themselves on the back constantly. The village has basically done none of this. The only time they mow the sides of the roads was when people complained and brought in photos of how bad it was.
I give the village one more year before it is gone.
