    The Mark of Zorro

    This week the Rye Record further reveals the previously hidden identities of Rye’s “Better Bond” debt vigilantes and carves out their now clearly demarked goals to save our non-native or naive resident brethren from self-victimization due to their own willful ignorance. The Record’s April 19, 2019 page A2 delivers our local Zorro’s welcome and warning in a column entitled “Join the Conversation on a Better Bond.”

    “The Friend’s of a Better Bond sought to work out a compromise with the School Board but their voice, representing a majority of the voters, was treated with a polite nod. They were not heard. How about a bond half the size, with a shorter life, and an annual maintenance program designed to sustain the facilities? It could be followed by another bond or bonds, addressing the needs and priorities as determined at a future time.”

    The revealed signers of this mark are all Rye political class members with whom I have historically had little in common and have in fact worked diligently to sunlight many of their prior municipal cover-up’s and dirty deeds. My neighbor, Mr. Dunn, to name one, sits on the so-called Rye City Board of Ethics, AKA The Whitewash Crew. They are transparency’s greatest nemesis and I am no member of their ranks. MyRye readers know I ride hard against this bunch but in this specific case they are delivering a message, a message that needs to be heard and heard without malice.

    Most in Rye are I’m sure unaware that a 14% 2019 Westchester County sales tax increase is in the final stages of being approved in Albany. Sales tax as you know hits almost everything needed to sustain every household in Rye. The actual increase is not 1% as advertised but 14%.

    Wake up everyone. It’s not what our rulers tell you, its what they don’t.
