Dear fellow Rotterdamians:

Despite our best efforts, the brush tax was passed over Rick Larmour's and my objection. For all of you that want to opt out (like me) and also want to make a protest statement out of it (like me again), come to town hall on March 12th or March 26th. I will be notarizing opt out forms from my town board seat for a half hour before and a half hour after the conclusion of the regularly scheduled 7 PM meeting. Get your opt out form signed right on the same bench from which Buffardi, Calder and Viscusi shoved it down your throat.

For those of you that cannot make any of those times, I will make myself available on request at an agreed upon time. Please e-mail me at jvillano@rotterdamny.org.

Please make sure to bring your form and photo ID.

Thank you Joe Villano, nice to see you here and involved with your supporters.


We are advised NOT to judge ALL Muslims by the actions of a few lunatics, but we are encouraged to judge ALL gun owners by the actions of a few lunatics.   Funny how that works.

Joe
There is no way you a town employee can notarize this form

You are a town employee

The town clerk won't process forms motorized by town employees


Or maybe my form wast good enough for just any notary to sign I needed an appointed notary

I am not aware of any prohibition preventing me from notarizing anything. Your argument is circular exit3. You indicate that no town employee can notarize the form, except the clerk. The clerk is an employee of the town and also an elected official like me. The difference between other employees and the elected officials is that I have no supervisor over me except the tax payers. There is no one telling me not to do things as a courtesy for you. Furthermore, a notary is a state office. The town cannot unilateral restrict my powers which the state has granted me. If you are aware of a statute or state code, rule, or regulation that is contrary to my position, I'm all ears. I'm not infallible, I make mistakes like anyone else. I'm always interested in learning more about my conflicting responsibilities.

Also, your local bank will gladly notarize for you as well.


"While Foreign Terrorists were plotting to murder and maim using homemade bombs in Boston, Democrap officials in Washington DC, Albany and here were busy watching ME and other law abiding American Citizens who are gun owners and taxpayers, in an effort to blame the nation's lack of security on US so that they could have a political scapegoat."

Joe you are correct
Here is the reply from the department of state on the issue of notary restriction

"Notary Public's are Public Officer's acting on behalf of the People
> of the State, not their employer. Notary Publics' and are required to
> officiate upon request unless circumstances warrant a refusal such as
> failure of the affiant to adequately prove their identity, reasonable
> questions regarding the affiant's state of mind/competency, conflict of
> interest, reasonable suspicions that notarizing the document will
> perpetuate a fraud, etc."

I am passing on to you and others that her highness the town clerk is restricting town employees who are notaries including yourself that only she her highness can notarize these special opt out forms

In simple terms

Who the Fu(k is running town hall

The town board

Or

The town clerk

The little man on the third floor, MyGirl and the TC all former City of Schenectady employees have rained down the same sh!t storm they were part of before they nestled in Harry's lap. No balls Harry can't cut them loose. Now if they were jail guards.  Too funny. The ship be sinking.
