Below is a story from the Ulster County Press about a woman who lost everything she owned, her home and over a million dollars in priceless possessions because of incompetence on the part of the office of the Ulster County Clerk.
Pretty much while this poor woman in Stone Ridge was away taking care of her dying husband, the county clerk's office kept sending the tax bills and foreclosure notices to the wrong address and that mail was returned to the County Clerk's office.
The County Clerk's office didn't acknowledge that the mail was being returned to them and let the house be foreclosed and sold.
When the woman returned to her home after her husbands death, she found it had been sold and her contents sold.
After it was all sorted out, it was found that the mail was being returned to the County Clerk's office because they had the WRONG address.
The woman has prevailed in Court and the court has "given" her the house back, but all of her possessions and antiques are gone. She has tracked many of them down through some not so reputable dealers.
Although she has prevailed in court, she still doesn't have her house back because the County doesn't have a mechanism to give it back to her. It was sold to someone else.
Depositions have been taken in court and certain people in the County Clerk's office and Treasurer's office are saying that they "don't know" certain people that we all know that they know because their spouses are in business with them.
It is a huge mess and this poor woman in Stone Ridge is getting screwed left and right by everyone in the County. She is rightly really really upset and is suing the County and is NOT interested in settling.
Mrs. Postupack needs to publicly address this and resign her office immediately.
