LETTER: If enrollment is down, why are taxes going up?

To the editor: Just finished reading the column by Russ Tarby in the Star-Review about our high school taxes in the county [“Consensus kicks door open to future tax relief,” page 4, Feb. 3]. The one thing that was missing from the column was that, as taxpayers, we still continue to approve the school budgets that come up for a vote each year. Maybe it’s about time the taxpayers started voting down the budget and forced the school administrators and boards of education to find other ways to educate the kids that are more cost-effective.

LETTER: Tarby gives unrealistic view of school taxes, demographics

To the editor: Reading Russ Tarby’s article, “Consensus kicks door open to future tax relief” [page 4, Feb. 3] one is lead to believe that the Liverpool school district “demands” money from its taxpayers and that those budget increases are somehow out of line with the district’s needs. Let’s take a closer look at the reality.

LETTER: Vote no on BCSD referendum

To the editor: I will be voting no on the Baldwinsville School District Capital Project, not because I don’t think any of the projects are valid, but because I have some issues with the projects and the “bundling” of projects into one referendum.

LETTER: Zambrano not absolved of ethics charges

To the editor: Recent news articles and letters to the editor, along with comments at Cicero Town Hall and in the community, indicate there is a good deal of misunderstanding regarding the decision by the Cicero Board of Ethics that found the former town supervisor guilty of a conflict of interest and subsequent litigation seeking her removal from office.

LETTER: Becallo for state assembly

To the editor: Over the last two years, the town of Cicero has been fighting for its life. For most of the people in CNY, this is no big surprise, as many communities are fighting hard to stay afloat. With reports stating that Cicero will be bankrupt by 2019, we have had one single hope: Councilman Mike Becallo.

LETTER: Editorial includes good advice on snowmobile safety

To the editor: The January 20, 2016 edition of the Baldwinsville Messenger ran the editorial “Snowmobilers: Beware of early season conditions.” The editorial covered safety remarks made by the NYS Snowmobile Association (NYSSA) on the seasonal late start and snow cover for snowmobiling on the maintained clubs trails system. All good points of safety information, especially to “reach out to your local club for information on the trails” whose online website includes the club’s telephone (and often a snow phone) listing for trail conditions.

LETTER: Political agendas have no place in the legislature

In 2016, I will continue to do my best to keep the nonsense from the business of county taxpayers. If I can ever help, please don’t hesitate to call and thank you again for the privilege of being your legislator. 

Kudos to congressmen Richard Hanna and John Katko

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: Both congressman voted against repeal of the Affordable Care Act and defunding Planned Parenthood. They were two of only three Republicans out of 435 house members who did so. As moderate Republicans, we appreciate the common sense that both Katko and Hanna have shown on these issues.
