Watchdogging your tax dollars…

Dump Terry Bernardo
Dump Terry Bernardo
Remember the pre-elections mantra? Look above. Terry Bernardo — A Watchdog for our Taxpayer Dollars. To quote David O’Halloran, Chairman, Town of Rochester Republican Committee: “Terry is a small business owner and will take good care of taxpayer dollars. She is responsible and capable and has earned our support.” She did, didn’t she?

Dump Terry Bernardo
Now take a look above. With 33 legislators, the 2011 Ulster County Legislature adopted budget is $361,837. With 10 fewer legislators at $10,000 a year, the 2012 Ulster County Legislature budget should have been $261,827. Instead, Terry Bernardo, the watchdog for our taxpayer dollars, brought it up to $451,030. That’s $189,203 of taxpayer money wasted by Terry Bernardo to reward with jobs and increases some of the people who helped her get in the high chair.

Wait! That’s not all! The actual amount of employee health benefits paid to Legislature employees has increased from 2011 to 2012 by $96,261.60, and that’s with 10 fewer Legislators!

    I am not surprised by this. Bernardo’s have to buy their way to where they want to go. No one would vote for them if they had to depend on an election.

    I think it would be more appropriate if the red pawn in your picture was a queen.
