Auer­bach owes an apol­ogy

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OPINION -

Dear Edi­tor: Re “Ul­ster County bud­get hear­ing all about comptroller cuts ,” Nov. 16, 2016: Comptroller El­liott Auer­bach should be ashamed of his politi­cized cri­tique of the Pa­tri­ots Project for veter­ans dur­ing the hear­ing.

He has some nerve find­ing fault with a pro­gram that has helped dozens of home­less veter­ans se­cure sta­ble hous­ing. His deroga­tory quote about “re­cidi­vism” is dis­re­spect­ful to veter­ans and ig­no­rant of the rea­sons for vet­eran home­less­ness.

Auer­bach owes an apol­ogy to the vet­eran com­mu­nity. He also should an­swer for politi­ciz­ing a suc­cess­ful pro­gram to di­vert at­ten­tion from valid ques­tion­ing of his re­sults as comptroller.
