Here is a question. Do we want Glenville running the Village too? If you think this group will reduce your taxes I have some fresh swamp land for sale.

I would be suspicious of anyone running for a trustee seat, with absolutely no experience, that makes a comment that reducing the tax burden below the cap is easily met. I would however put money on a bet that they have only recently, (if ever) attended a village board meeting.

The current team led by Mayor Kastberg has been doing a good job for the residents of Scotia. His team makes Scotia the nice place it is to live and raise our children.

Another step back! Once again, New Yorks Premier Worst Union has negotiated downward again. Reducing the health coverage, no raise, and then a paltry offering of 1 or 2 per cent.

Sounds like they are following the retreat and total ineffectiveness of CSEA Local 885 in the County. Reduce the health plan with higher co-pays, offering no raise, followed by raises below the cost of living.

For the County retirees, get ready for the same plan offerings that GE is giving their retirees.

When did mediocrity become so acceptable?

That is ridiculous. Passing on your expenses to Village residences who pay crippling taxes as it is will penalize those least able to take on more of a burden.

Maybe if the the town stopped re-employing retired recycled employees from their own and other municipalities their overhead would be more manageable.

Gee, one of them wants to be the Mayor of Scotia! Pay attention residents, the Trojan horse is at the door!

Wow, I hope they did not pay for that! Just when I thought people could not be any more stupid, someone regurgitates crap like this infantile garbage.

Anti woman? Are you really that desperate? My family met Mr Amedore at an Elks gathering this summer and found him to be a caring family man who has a real grasp on the issues affecting us. He spent time talking to all of us and took time to speak my grand-daughter who is going to college, and shared that his own daughter is going away to college too.

He will get my families support. And yes, my wife and daughter , who are women, will support him also!

Take notice Glendale Home. You are next! Your pathetic union CSEA will stand by the road screaming at cars, put on a really classy show, and ultimately lose just like they lost in Saratoga.

Mrs. Shanty is partly correct. The county could not have changed the insurance for retirees without the consent of CSEA. Unfortunately, they did not do their homework either. CSEA traded the retirees security for more sick days and a dental plan.

Retirees benefits need to be vested so that things like this do not happen. Changes could be applied prospectively, protecting the older retirees.

The current CSEA Local was more interested in getting things for themselves and jobs for their relatives. They negotiated the worst contract in 30 years.

How amusing. Madeline Thorne enjoyed a patronage position at Glendale Home for many years. She is beholden to the party and is just another cog in the same gear.
