Candidate Joe Moscato's Town Hall Meeting

7 - 8:30 PM
Greece United Methodist Church
1924 Maiden Ln @ Long Pond Rd
EVERYONE IS WELCOME !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

EDITORIAL POLICY CHANGE ~~ Given the growing contentious nature of the upcoming elections and given that there are at least two other BLOGS willing to publish the slash and burn vitriole about named citizens who have little to do with any actual "news story," SCATS isn't  publishing comments that sound more appropriate on those other BLOGS. Take your drama and your potential future lawsuits elsewhere. Thank you.

I just spoke with Joe Moscato, a friend of many years, after reading the comments on the "Monroe Rising" blog. He is amused and pleased that they saw fit to publicize his meeting this evening and realizes that they must assume he is a big threat to the powers that be or else they would not be wasting their time with him. He, frankly, is surpised that they have waited this long before they started their "dirty tricks" a common tactic of the Greece Republicans.

The last thing Auberger and company want is Joe Moscato on the Town Board. As a resident of this town for 50 years and a a former police officer during the Phelan years, he knows quite well the tactics employed by that crowd. He also knows where a lot of skeletons are buried and the quid pro quo that has gone on here for many, many years.

If Joe is "crazy", I think it's because he thinks he can make a difference and can bring this Town back to responsible government and once again restore pride in Greece. He is "crazy" like a fox.

Anyone who truly knows Joe, knows that he does not drink at all, except for an occasional beer or a glass of wine. Now he knows the source of the comments on Monroe Rising and talk about "hitting the sauce", well, you know the old saying, "People who Live in Glass Houses, etc. . . ."

To 4:15PM ~~ Very well said. They've tried repeatedly to get their rants on this BLOG. That's one of several reasons for Comment Moderation, at least until the election.

There is a person I won't name who heads communications for the county who is known for sleazy dirty tricks.

Google his name for a sample of his work as a of r student. Why do such people have jobs?

SCATS said...

To 5:26PM ~~ The "sleazy dirty tricks" aren't even limited to the politicians these days!

There is something about Joe I really like! Besides all the good blurbs and marketing about him designed for me to like him, I mean, and also in a non-politicl way. For some intangible reason, I just like the guy. He seems to me like he works hard and still has fun.

Like I said, it's just the vibe I get from him.

Holy Geez! I can't believe these guys. Uncle Rico and Monroe Rotting have short memories. Have they forgotten the well-documented former police chief who smashed up no less than 5 police cars while on the "sauce." Have they forgotten he was committed Chit Chat Farms in Pennsylvania to dry out? This was Mr. Republican.

I think Joe ought to sue them for slander. Unlike my comments here, theirs are completely untrue. If he did sue, Uncle Rico would be identified and his a** would be grass. Go get em, Joe, we've got your back.

Residents are now asking questions about their concerns in their wards. Lots of interest in Joes background on the school board.

Joe is talking now about the current administration and Bilsky lack of variance on any issues Auberger passes and how the board meetings are over in 15 min.

Anonymous said...

Discussion now is about the lack of government transparency and one party rule in Greece that has led to corruption and unchecked decision making, like the Joseph hiring which has now turned into the blame game.

Joe is now talking about the traffic study on Dewey Ave

Now discussing development on Ridge Rd and the lack of real jobs & how COMIDA gives tax breaks to the business while the residents pick up the tab for sometimes only ONE job. Also how Aubergers daughter got a variance on set back of her Talbatts store on long pond and how what you get is based on who you are.

Now talking a out the 12 million dollar plus surplus and how the state recommends only 15% versus the 30% the town is bleeding from the taxpayers.

Now discussing Walts health plan & how Joe is still fighting for the taxpayers in Greece to end this golden parachute that gives Walts a lifetime of benefits for 5 years of work.

Now discussing how Auberger has been ind to every scandal in this town including the assessor scandal & how Auberger says he will not rest until he gets all the bad guys - and that Jack must NEVER sleep!

Residents expressing concerns over lack of youth services in the community and how did a town so rich in the past of these services suddenly allow these critical services to disappear from the community?

"Jack puts his money where the votes are & kids don't vote"

The summer programs as well reduced. The true sution & deterent to crime is to work with youth & families you build a better and stronger community.

Would someone please tell me why Moscato wanted an endorcement from the GTA.
You have to question where his allegence is.

SCATS said...

To 9:27PM ~~ Why don't you ask him? He's out in the community often. He's very approachable. I assume you do realize he served on the Greece BOE and helped resolve all those EEOC age discrimination lawsuits filed against the district under Supt. Steve Walt's tenure.

Scats- WAY COOL! Live blogging is second only to being there. I couldn't attend but I appreciate the effort you made to let us know what happened. Scats, you rock! Thanks for all your hard work.

I just looked at the comment about Joe on Monroe Rising (there's an oxymoron). Uncle Rico's comments on Joe were unsettling to me when I realize there are people like him among us posing as humans.

If anyone would take the time to look at Joe's websites they would soon realize what kind of man he is. I suggest that anyone who hasn't visited Moscato2009.com with links to his Friends site as well as the link to his charitable organization would see what a terrible liar Uncle Rico is.

If after viewing the site and seeing what Joe is really all about and believe his accomplishments are the acts of a "crazy" or "insane" person, then I say we need a world full of people with Joe's kind of insanity.

This is a man who truly cares about people, but is a more caring advocate for our four legged friends who are far more deserving than people like Uncle Rico.
