Members of the Ulster County Legislature voted 16-5 to adopt the 2013 budget.
Comments on blogs are right on the money:
one who knows says:
Ulster County Legislators passed the budget along with the County takeover of Safety Net and a Flow Control Law for the RRA. Mario Catalano was there trying to talk Republican Legislators into voting NO on the budget. Great year for Democrats next year! The NO votes were Terry Bernardo, Richard Gerentine, John Parete, Rich Parete and Rob Parete. Hmmm… seems to be a pattern forming here.
My congratulations to Terry Bernardo for voting NO on the first budget in years that cuts spending and property taxes. Yes, this is our leader. You get what you deserve.
