Terry Award nominee lies on her Facebook page

Terry Award

Do you remember the four-year nightmare known as Terry Bernardo? Here she is, working hard to prove that a liar is a liar is a liar. Take a look at this masterpiece found on her Facebook page:

    “We have been fighting not only rumors, but our actual IDA contract being cancelled at Skate Time 209 for years. Despite the fact that we hired a lawyer and that there was no legal basis for what they did to us and that they HAD to reinstate our contract, people still want to believe the spin that we didn’t create the jobs we were supposed to.

    Just like Chris Christie’s people used their positions and power to pay back their opponent politically, I have been on the receiving end as well. While the people that are dishing it out and actually trying to convince voters that they are working for the taxpayers and trying to hold people accountable, they are really just using their appointed or elected position to hurt others politically.

    The waste of taxpayer money on political pettiness is astounding. It goes on all the time. Read any of the things that Gates has said in his recent book.”

As an old friend remarked, “Wow, what a name dropper – she compares herself to Christie and then throws in Gates. What jobs? Last I knew they had 4 in 2012.”

Terry’s whine gave me a bad case of SMH (that’s “shaking my head” for the acronym-challenged readers). I’m not surprised that she lies about past, present, and future. I’m surprised that she’s so sloppy doing it. Read again her first sentence:

    “We have been fighting not only rumors, but our actual IDA contract being cancelled at Skate Time 209 for years.”

Really Pinocchio? For years? How about these two articles in Daily Freeman, less than three months apart?

Accord roller rink co-owned by Ulster County Legislature Chairwoman Terry Bernardo losing tax breaks

    KINGSTON, N.Y. – Two Ulster County businesses, including one owned by county Legislature Chairwoman Terry Bernardo and her husband, will lose their property tax breaks for failing to agree to a voluntary reduction of those breaks, the head of the county Industrial Development Agency board said on Thursday.

    Board Chairman David O’Halloran said he will sign documents Friday revoking the payment-in-lieu-of-taxes, or PILOT, agreements for Skate Time 209, the Accord roller rink owned by Terry and Len Bernardo, and Hudson Valley Sportsdome in Milton, owned by Nick Pizza.

Accord roller rink co-owned by Ulster County Legislature Chairwoman Terry Bernardo has tax breaks reinstated

    KINGSTON, N.Y. – Three Ulster County businesses, including one co-owned by county Legislature Chairwoman Terry Bernardo, would have property tax breaks reinstated by the Ulster County Industrial Development Agency following an agency policy change.

    Agency Chairman Michael Horodyski said the board on Wednesday voted to reverse a previous policy change that had the effect of canceling payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreements with the businesses following a state Court of Appeals decision involving a similar action by the state Empire Zone.

    Bernardo, R-Accord, said she was pleased by the Industrial Development Agency board’s action Wednesday, saying the board had “no legal basis” to terminate its payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement in the first place.

    Bernardo called the decision to revoke her businesses tax breaks “politically motivated.”

Politically motivated? Only if the phrase “all politics is local” refers to Terry being loca.

    Ahhh…. FINALLY! The time is here that I can read about her BS (that’s “bullshit” for the acronym-challenged readers) and laugh now that her reign of terror is over.

    $300,000 in tax breaks over 10 years to create a few minimum wage jobs. Len’s defense of his annual property tax breaks is the best ” Skatetime 209 is a tourist destination”. Tony at A&M Hardware should apply for tax benefits, I saw a car in the lot with out of state plates! Len actually thinks that when nearby hotels send their guest to his rink, bingo – tourist destination.

    The only tourists that go there are the summer camp kids in their busses.

    With Terry out, I think the focus now ought to be on getting Ulster County voters out of the Independence Party (especially the ones who enrolled unwittingly), and shaming local politicians out of seeking that line.

    9:35, the Summer Camps ARE Tourist Destinations bringing out of county kids to Ulster County. Skatetime is no more a Tourist Destination than the gas station that fills up the buses. It is a local recreation facility utilized by local residents and visitors staying at camps, summer homes or motels. Many guests to county dine at local restaurants, that does not make Family & Friends Restaurant a tourist attraction.

    WOW man! you really should let it go. She lost and still has the courage to face the likes of people like you. Dude you really need personal management help. Sad part is, she is already more than you will ever be! But that won’t stop you, just had to say it.

      Let it go !?!?!? “She is more” !?!?!?… This woman has destroyed politics in our town, has taken advantage of all the taxpayers in our town to further her personal wealth, she is down right nasty and vindictive to anyone that does not agree wih her and has done tremendous damage to the County. Jon tells it like it is. So as far as I am concerned, he is more of a human being than she is even capable of being. If you consider her to be more, than your assessment must be based on wealth and power, not good intentions or good deeds.

    Terry should explain on her face book page how she was the watch dog for our tax dollars but increased our County budget rather than reducing it as it should have been and why she hired cronies and ass kissers to position that should have been filled by competent people. Finally, why she was working for herself rather than the people of her district. She can not give one good example of anything she did to benefit the Town of Rochester.

      The huge benefit she gave us was she was so bad at her job that she got herself unelected. Other politicians are just not as bad at being bad and keep getting themselves reelected each time and keep doing nothing.

What do you have to say?
