Independence Party endorsements cause rift

I am a blank but somehow got tricked into being a member of this "party". Can someone tell me what it is that Alex and company really represent or is he just the snake oil salesman he comes off as?" Jul 23, 09 3:06 PM

Residents oppose construction of 11 new affordable houses in Flanders

peoplefirst, it's affordable RENTAL housing that is the issue
squeaky, oil yourself and read the story

The opposition to this is based on the fact that this turns into a a job security program for John White and company. There is no need for the town to be acting like landlords. The area residents would welcome theses home as being available for PURCHASE. There is currently a glut of absentee landlord housing throughout the northwest area of the town.
The program as being sold as it is, will build state of the art energy effircient homes, far beyond current building codes. In the end, you will have people renting very nice homes at a subsidized rate. There would be no motivation for them to ever move on to home ownership. It gets worse as the tax rates on these properties would be frozen. Thats nice for the renters and the town, BUT, the cost of educating the children in these homes will continue to go up. The burden for that will be picked up by other homeoweners in the area.
This program would sell quite easily if the town merely promised that in the end the homes woul be made available for purchase. They may have to tone down the type of home they want to build in order to keep them affordable." Aug 3, 09 11:32 AM

Kabot: Loss of Conservative Party line a 'betrayal'

But the point it missed is that the day after a Police Officer reaches 20 years of service, his or her emplyment could be terminated on a whim of a politician. " Aug 5, 09 10:45 AM

No barberosa, it sounds like YOU don't know Alex. And I bet he would like to keep it that way.
Tell me please, what qualifies him for this position? Or the Trustee spot he ran for?, or the Council Person spot he ran for?, or the Supervisors seat he ran for?

Just wanting a paycheck isn't a qualification." Aug 9, 09 5:33 PM

Southampton Town Board hears new information on highway superintendent question

How ridiculous a bomb thrower type mentality, Phanex. What does a golf tournament have to do with an election?
How does Town Hall figure in? It is at least 8 miles from the Highway Department. Typical Democratic crap. You really thnk your boy is up to the task of leading 65 employees? Take a GOOD look at him.
I know, you are one of the "disenfranchised" that the mean old Republicans have kept of of Town Hall forever, right? That song is old and tired, and has been the mantra of every Dem to run for office forever. Too bad, you have managed to elect Steve Kenny, Roberta Hunter, Batrbara Gubbins, Caroline Zenk, Doug Penny........and still, you scream about the horrible Republicans,.
Grow up." Aug 13, 09 4:07 PM

Independence Party leader steps down after row with state chair

So typical of Gregor to quit. It reflects his employment history. He simply made a promise to the Democratic bosses that he could deliver and it turns out he couldn't. Now the Dems are stuck with him, he will be a drag on their tails come November. Kudos to Bill Pell for stepping up to the plate!!" Sep 29, 09 1:44 PM

Throne-Holst missed campaign finance filing deadline

Malone has made clear, if elected, he will not take on the Council position, with a part time approach. In his interview with the editors of the SH Press, he was asked the question, and confimed he has no intention of giving the voters anything less than his full time commitment, and his role in County gov would yield.


This is the opitomy of a man dedicated to serving his town. His willingness to step away from our county, and take a substaintial pay cut, is the mark of a man who loves his town enogh to make a personal sacrifice. I'm sure, his having grown up in our town, informs that decision. Somwthing all the carpetbagger democrats have no concept of.

Southampton Town Board candidate Fleming receives Independence endorsement

"I believe the Independence party believes in good government and always has"

Can you find that for me under some Independence Party web site or something?

The party was started by a bilionaire, Tom Golisano, and is run now by Frank McKay. The party is the tail wagging the dog for the benefit of Mr McKay and friends.

I would really like it if you could prove otherwise. " Jan 20, 10 7:56 AM

Fishermen Help Save Fellow Fisherman After Boat Flips In Inlet

2012 Southampton Town Budget Will Include Staff Cuts

HHS,
A) Cops do not retire at 3/4

B) Your math is off the charts. If your 6 200K cops retire, there is no more expense to the town. The town does not send retirement checks, nor does the town continue to contribute to the pension system once a cop , or any civil servant is retired.

C) Grow some and go to a town board meeting and express your concerns. " Sep 24, 11 10:51 PM

2012 Southampton Town Budget Will Include Staff Cuts

A), You used his info as fact and amplified that info, not knowing its validity

B) Ditto

C) So the scene plays out like this?: HHS goes to a town board meeting, registers his complaints of the local PD, and gets "In the Heat of the Night" ( a la Rod Steiger) treatment? Take the tinfoil of your head. " Sep 25, 11 11:39 PM

Republicans Challenge Forced Police Retirements In Southampton Budget As Political

Really? Any idea how many superior officer there are at SHTPD?

Do you also realize that SHTPD is one of only 2 police departments throughout New York State that is covered by this section of retirement law?
