Ridgeway Audit

Comptrollers Audit of Ridgeway WOW what a bunch of total screw ups. Insert head in ass Mr. Napoli and the rest of the tax and spend criminals on the Ridgeway town board. You have been robbing the tax payers and mismanaging the money from the day you took office. Of course Lynne Johnson screwed up the books just like she did in Yates. Why they keep her in either town is a mystery. Both Towns have spent over 16000 each to get better book keeping software because she doesn't have a clue of what she is doing, if she is even doing the books herself. The books are done at her firm NOT at the Towns. She has Other people working for her. My guess is they do the books. Resignations are in order.

Audit says on March 12, 2012, the book keeper informed the board that water appropriations from the previous fiscal year (2011) needed to be increased by $110,592. The board approved these budget transfers without any substantive discussion more than 2 months after the fiscal year concluded. Where exactly did the money go? Looks like on OVER SPENDING. How truly Ridgeway.

Ridgeway residents this is what's running your town? Such disrespect for your hard earned and taken money? A bunch of bobble head yes men with no brains to ever discuss anything. Have you ever gone to a meeting? They never vote against anything. They are all of one mind.

You get what you deserve. You let these people in the door when it should be slammed in their faces.

It appears like somebody has been stealing money. The comptroller is putting the blame on the Supervisor but the supervisor has a book keeper. The book keeping here appears to be so amateurish that its almost as if it was done on purpose. No records of cash expenditures being kept, no receipts, a very poor paper trail. I would look to see who has been living it up the last 6 years? Who was going on vacations every month taking family and friends? Who's been running up huge bar tabs and out to dinner every night . Having cosmetic surgery and dressing real fancy. Hey come to think of it that sounds just like the book keeper. Just sayin

I want to point your attention to the response letter from the Ridgeway officials. At some point they confirmed that "adjusting" entries were made for the whole 2011 by an "independent" accounting firm to the town's books. It simply means that they cooked the books and then in panic, knowing about the audit in another town that the same book keeper is an employee, started reversing the numbers. Also, note that the State auditors kept completely silent about this issue.

Did you see Brainless Napoleon the Midget Ridgeway supervisor in the paper with the local "Friend" contractor. This guy has no shame. He and his board of dunderheads taxes, spends and regulates the people of Ridgeway to the poor house. keeps incompetent book keeper, himself and board members despite massive foul ups for years. Constantly cries like a girl about how much everything costs then turns around and renovates the town Hall.
You people in Ridgeway are either stupid and clueless or you have no balls and deserve to keep getting it up your a ss . When are you going to demand the resignation of these low IQ special Olympics types that waste your money.
If you don't participate in politics you deserve the inferior people who rule over you. No wonder Orleans County is #1 for all the wrong reasons and the laughing stock of the state.
