PAUL STEINBERG'S 7/9 GAZETTE LTR. ON GOUVEIA'S COSTS, UP UP & AWAY
To the editor:
Joel Gingold (Gazette June 1) says that the Village Board misled the residents of Croton, but this is simply not true.
will concede that the initial costs have been far in excess of the
public documents released by the Board prior to the acquisition. But it
was well-known that the Board was not telling the truth in their public
statements and hence there should be no reason for Mr. Gingold to be shocked.
Board released over a hundred pages of Gouveia-related emails in
response to a FOIL request. If Mr. Gingold had bothered to read those
documents, he would have known not to trust the Board, and Mr. Wiegman
& Ms. Gallelli in particular.
Throughout the Gouveia
process, many people commented that the "endowment" would not be
sufficient to maintain the property. The Journal-News even ran a
story detailing all the properties "donated" to other Westchester
municipalities which had become an albatross around the neck of the
taxpayers. READ MORE HERE https://www.facebook.com/notes/croton-united/musings-from-cu-member-paul-steinberg/473298936160476
