Hempstead Town Council’s Passage of Shameless Personnel Moves Attacks Democratic Process, Taxpayers, Ethical Govt.

Reclaim New York Initiative statement on the Hempstead Town Council’s passage of the Town Supervisor’s personnel move that would give raises, move, and otherwise payoff and protect select town employees:

“This move is an absolute disgrace. It’s a shameless attack on the democratic process, hard-working people, and the principles of open government.

“Way to slap the taxpayers of Hempstead in the face on your way out the door Mr. Santino.

“The people who have long been stuck with the bill for payoffs to political insiders have demanded new leadership. We hope residents and elected officials can seize this opportunity for real change, and clean up the mess that’s been left behind.”
