Town Supervisor and 2 Town Council seats will be up for election next year -- 2015.  

Of course, my perspective is that it gives us at least 18 more months of good leadership and good government.


uh yup....7 water main breaks, $18,000 patronage job at the senior center, no contract for rems, giving themselves raises....while taxes and fees for the taxpayers go UP!!

UH YUP...THAT'S WHAT I CALL GOOD GOVERNMENT LEADERSHIP !!

if i remember correctly....rems has been saying all along that they didn't need taxpayer's money from the town budget and thatthey were self sufficient since they were doing 'real life billing'. Well that was when mohawk was on the ballot. rems tried to portray themselves as if they were running their organization like mohawk....ya know 'self sufficient'? but again...that's when mohawk was on the ballot.

and let me be clear....i could give a rat's a$$ who is the ambulance provider for ROTTENdam...don't have a horse in the race.....but rems appears to be flip flopping.

don't really matter cause now with socialist health care...mohawk will be running it ALL.....eventually!

The Rotterdam fire department is taxpayer funded, yet they appear to have a need to seek cash donations in a boot, and door to door, regularly.
