Hoffay Blocks Economic Development in City

Hoffay who is willing to do anything to see the Gallo administration fail is now trying to block taking 1,500 from contingency for equipment that would make the city more competitive in terms of economic development. Put simply this 1,500 purchase would pay for itself and then some but Hoffay is blocking it with his court jesters because he does not want economic development in Kingston.  Hoffay does not want anything that will make Mayor Gallo look good. Sad state of affairs.

Hoffay should not be re-elected. It is disgusting what people do in politics under the guise of "good government", and what sickens me is that the public falls for it sometimes.

You called it right Blaber.

I missed this story. What is the $1,500 for? I know the general fund was depleted as the past Mayor and Common Council thoughtlessly raided it to stay under the tax cap, but what is this about, specifically? And, why would anyone want to block such a small draw?

Is there any provision for the Mayor's office, or a department, to spend $1500 without Common Council approval. If so, I'd say, have at it.
