Town of Ball­ston Repub­li­can pri­mary

The Saratogian (Saratoga, NY) - - OPINION -

The other day I received a call from a woman who said she rep­re­sented the NY Repub­li­can State Com­mit­tee. She ques­tioned who would vote for Eric Con­nolly, can­di­date for Ball­ston Town Su­per­vi­sor when he had filed for per­sonal bank­ruptcy about 10 years ago.

I would point out that the Real Es­tate Mar­ket at that time was a dis­as­ter for many peo­ple who lost per­sonal fi­nances but went on to be­come suc­cess­ful busi­ness­men.

in con­trast the cur­rent su­per­vi­sor Tim Szczeta­niak is re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing ex­ces­sive ex­pen­di­ture of Tax­payer money.

1. Mul­ti­ple law­suits were filed against the town and they ul­ti­mately lost every one, prov­ing to me the town board, under his di­rec­tion in 3 to 2 de­ci­sions was will­fully cir­cum­vent­ing ex­ist­ing laws, cost­ing the tax­pay­ers thou­sands of dol­lars.

2. In ad­di­tion the town has spent over $750,000 of a $2,500.00 grant for the lake sewer sys­tem ( not started af­ter nearly 4years). if not built the tax­pay­ers will be re­spon­si­ble for re­pay­ing the State.

The peo­ple of Town of Ball­ston de­serve bet­ter and Con­nolly, Curtis and Sol­berg are the an­swer.Re­mem­ber in­cum­bents Szczeta­niak and Gosling re­fused an in­vi­ta­tion by the League of Women Vot­ers for a debate. What are they afraid of?
