Statement: Hempstead Supervisor’s Shameless Personnel Scheme

Reclaim New York Initiative provided the following statement on Hempstead Town Supervisor Anthony Santino’s proposal to pay off, and shield, select employees from the incoming administration:

“Supervisor Santino’s shameless personnel moves reveal a disturbing attitude that government exists to serve the interests of a political machine at taxpayers’ expense.

“The Town Council should vote down the Supervisor’s payoff scheme. Hempstead residents should not have to watch as town hall gets looted, and political hacks dodge public accountability.”
