Bernardo's Latest Claim : Too Funny
I guess when you are Len Bernardo, and are up against a guy that delivered more reform in 2 years than the previous 26 combined (HV Business Magazine), you have to make up things to try and get traction...and not surprisingly the Daily Disappointment fell for it hook line and sinker.
The latest line, happened at the chamber of commerce debate, get ready for this one and try not to laugh, Mike Hein was responsible for the jail fiasco.....
Any reasonable person that has been following what has been going on in Ulster County even a little bit closely, knows that Mr. Hein blew the whistle on the jail fiasco when he was deputy treasure of Ulster County, only to be told by Pete Savago and the GOP leadership to sit down and shut up.
Well Mike Did not.
And, the next year when the Dems swept the legislature, Mike Hein was promoted to County Administrator and presented the first county budget that CUT SPENDING. If it were not for the 6 million that has to be paid in debt services each year because of the jail fiasco, residents would have witnessed a tax decrease as well.
Was Mike Hein responsible for the jail fiasco, I think not.
