As many of you know, Mayor Wiegman's 2014 "timesheets" have been released thanks to Croton United's recent efforts--and the requisite freedom of information request that has become necessary for almost everything going on in the village these past several years.
Make no mistake. You would not be seeing these now had it not been for
the members of Croton United. In fact, you would not have even known about the
mayor's health insurance had it not been for Croton United candidate Virginia
Calcutti--and the subsequent follow-up of the Croton United team.
The most recent set of "timesheets" submitted by the mayor are
disturbing for many reasons--and there will be more extensive details in the
days to come. For now, however, here are just five of the things that Mayor Wiegman
"charged" the village for--in order to qualify for taxpayer funded
health insurance for himself and his family:
--Sept. 1, 2014 - 4 hours for timesheet compilation -- yes, you understand
that correctly. Mayor Wiegman charged the village for the time it took to charge
his hours to the village.
--Charges to attend the Cortlandt Memorial Day event.
--Charges to attend the Croton Memorial Day event.
--Charges for a Cub Scout proclamation.
--Charged for being at the "Summerfest booth".
There are also interesting travel
times charged from everywhere to Cortlandt Town Hall to Bedford.
These timesheets, again obtained only through a freedom of information by Croton United, will be placed online soon. In the
interim, however, a pdf is available upon request. Updated, now online @ http://bit.ly/1F6aX7C
As for the Croton democratic candidates' position on the issue of the mayor's health
insurance, see below for an important message from Croton United's Anderson,
Brijeski and Calcutti:
What is a 'trustee'? A trustee is “a person or organization that has
been given responsibility for managing someone else's property or money.."
With regards to our now 'full-time' Mayor, Leo Wiegman, and his taxpayer
subsidized health insurance benefits, our opponents' position is that,” We feel
it is not for any of us to judge his actions.”
Well, Mrs. Gallelli, Mrs. Slippen, and Mr. Pugh; your argument—if one can even
call it that—holds no water whatsoever.
IF NOT YOU, THE TRUSTEES, THEN WHO?
