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?
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.
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.
