Len Bernardo, are you fucking kidding us? (4)

Wanna make the town a three-ring circus?

Never vote for Len Bernardo

Here is the popular sentiment conveyed in the local newspapers:

“Town Supervisor candidate Len Bernardo promised 51 full time jobs over ten years in return for a PILOT program (Payment In Lieu Of Taxes) which meant he avoided paying sales tax and property and school taxes for ten years while we taxpayers picked up his tab. He produced 15 mostly part time in the first year then reportedly 6 then only three for the duration, three, him, his wife, and another.

Mr. Bernardo was quoted as stating that he paid the construction cost of his business building (Skate Time 209) out of pocket which came to $1.2 million. Once the tax break ended ten years later, he put the place up for sale for $2.49 million which means if he gets his asking price he’ll get back all the money he invested for building the business plus a million dollars profit (not counting the profit he’s taken from the business for the years it has been operating). So, while he stands to make a million we taxpayers have paid his taxes for a decade.”
