Elections commissioner runs unopposed for Camillus Village Trustee seat

A year ago today you were campaigning for the dissolution of the village. Do you still think the village should dissolve?

“I did campaign for dissolution last year because I feel we have too many layers of government. I also think at some point the village will not be able to sustain itself. The village population is just over 1,200 and the amount of property taxes paid to the village is just over $258,000. The amount of sales tax the village is receiving is decreasing. Grants to repair roads and infrastructure are hard to get. The town of Camillus would have received a $1,000,000 grant to be used for property tax reduction if the village had dissolved into it.

“That being said, a vote for dissolution cannot be held again until 2014.”

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 6.
