Bernardo Out Of Touch with Ulster County Voters
Republican candidate for County Executive Len Bernardo attended a town hall meeting in NYC last night and was able to ask McCain how we can reduce the tax burden hurting communities like . McCain answered by stressing the need to cut wasteful spending, and promised during the forum to veto pork barrel spending as President. also pointed out that the high tax burden, including a high property tax burden drives people away and hurts the capacity to expand economic opportunity.
That is all well and good but does Bernardo really need to ask this question? He is running for County Executive and should know the answers. I don't agree with McCain's answer, I think it misses the point of addressing the issue on a local level but that is neither here nor there. Len Bernardo is an out of towner that is completely out of touch with Ulster County residents..plain and simple.
Mr. Bernardo if you would like a detailed answer on the question that you posed to John McCain, head to the Ulster County Building, take the elevator to the 6th floor and ask to speak with Mike Hein, he has a record of results that we can trust. Ulster County can not afford to elect someone that will need extensive on the job training.
