Reilich Faces Ethics Complaint By Leary


Nitti's Lawsuit Ties Into Leary's Case Concerning Political Meetings Held At Greece Town Hall


In his ethics committee letter, Leary also noted that several members of Greece town staff hold additional political positions, "the intermingling of which may have led to this abuse of government property."
Of note, he said, Reilich is not only Monroe County Republican Party Chair, but also vice chair of the state Republican Committee; Commissioner of Public Works Kirk Morris is also the town's GOP leader; town attorney Brian Marianetti is majority leader of the Monroe County Legislature and Chairman of the Greece Republican Committee; and Greece Deputy Supervisor Michelle Marini is also a committee member with the state Republican Committee as well as treasurer of the Greece Republican Committee.

Who do you suppose is on the Greece Ethics Committee? Relic drones of course.

To 11:56AM ~~ You are likely correct. Reilich CONTROLS (manipulates) them all!

How many taxpayer funded miles get put on Town owned vehicles for Republican Party activity? King Willie & Michelle drive Town vehicles, so does Kirkiepoo.

In fairness, King Willie does have a limited pool of people who will stoop low enough to kiss his ass to reward with Town jobs. Ain't like any of them actually do anything resembling work, so they gotta be on the payroll for their ass kissing ability.

Don't forget, all town council members have political (Republican) appointed full time positions, so they are beholding to Big Bill to vote yes on anything he proposes.

Things never change in Greece. It's an incestuous political party in power. Shame on us taxpayers for continually allowing it.

Quit picking on us old farts or your tail goes under the rocking chair bud!

We ain't the damn fools who sit home on election day, and we damn sure know your little darlings are being conditioned to accept stupidity in those so called schools you give every possible penny to come budget time.

Greece was a damn fine town when all the Dullards carrying Diplomas decided to come here and ruin perfectly good farmland with crappy houses they couldn't hang onto because they voted to raise their own taxes.

We even had fine quality drunks and womanizers running the show back then, and they did the job.

We used to meet at Greece town hall when Dave Garretson was our town leader.

NEWSFLASH - being reported today, DrunkJudge triggered the alcohol sensor on her lovely ankle bracelet 2 days after release from custody.

Guess what Non Monroe County DA is hauling her back into Court.

Fiandach is doing back flips screaming Thank you Jesus for her firing me. He also claims to have been fully paid for the representation.

SCATS said...

To 10:10PM ~~ Her lawyer warned the court that she would violate the terms of her parole. She kept her word. Maybe we could get a fundraiser together to have a giant "L" tattooed on her forehead.

Anonymous said...

I vacillate between thinking she has no damn idea with whom she's messing, and thinking she is nuttier than a bucket of squirrel crap.

She is obviously too stupid to understand how the bracelet functions.
There is no way in hell the story somebody spilled a drink on her will fly with this device, and a body of evidence exists to prove the device's capability.

Given the DA and Judge involved, she is looking at a year behind bars, and loss of her Law License. Her current lawyer is a complete idiot if he thinks he can hang ineffective council on Fiandach.

It's also a clear demonstration of how Judges protect their own. It used to be drunk Judges were just put out to pasture, but this woman's act is outrageous. Taxpayers are giving her over $170k a year, and I have little doubt she will try either SSD or Workman's Comp if she is jailed.

SCATS said...

To 2:08AM ~~ My read on her is a bit different. I think she's an arrogant SOB who feels ENTITLED! She's already played the "I'm a single mom " ... "first Hispanic judge" ... and other "how I've overcome the deck stacked against me" cards ... er, I mean crapple.

Anyone else who tells a judge to f off would be in jail which is where her daughter belongs.

Actually Leary files this against Nitti as well. He stated in his filing that Nitti was violating as well! A little in fighting in the ranks so soon!

I heard EDDIE GARTZ lost his case in court.

Anonymous said...

To 8/7/17 @ 1:47pm If Gartz lost his court case then it is his own fault. Reilich runs everything here in Greece and if you are going to challenge him you better have your ducks in a row. How stupid it was for Gartz to run around with a petition without having someone familiar with the petition process review it BEFORE he started getting signatures. To leave off the ward he wished to represent is just plain dumb.

Anonymous said...

Too bad Reilich operates to hurt people rather than help them.
I have lived in Greece for over 70 years and I have never seen a supervisor who is more interested in himself than the town.
Sooner or later his reign will come to an end.

SCATS said...

I guess everyone thought it would be better under RiLick. Boy were we wrong ! BTW His photo was in the Post four times this past week.

Four times in the post? Could that have any correlation to things happening in Greece. If he wasn't in everyone would say he's doing nothing. Can't win!

SCATS said...

To 1:51PM ~~ LMAO!! Of course it has to do with things "happening in Greece." Quite likely things HE IS TAKING CREDIT FOR ... but had little, if anything, to do with ;)

Do you think this guy actually WORKS?? He sits in his office ... or grabs photo ops cutting ribbons ... or travels to Trump rallies ... etc. Must be nice!

TRUST ME, The Reilich Political Group has such a hold on the town right now and you can't get to lick of your ice cream at the 4th of July fireworks display without contributing to Reilich's Campaign Fund. Did anyone else notice the HUGE HUGE lines at Lugia's Trucks. OH THE OWNER OF LUGIA's TRUCKS is a campaign donor to Reilich. NO WONDER THAT WITH ALL OF THE FOOD AND BEVERAGE TRUCKS AVAILABLE THERE WERE ONLY 3 or 4 OTHERS AND THE ICE CREAM GETTING ALL THE BUSINESS WERE ALL LUGIA. YOU CAN BET THE FEW OTHERS WERE REILICH FRIENDS OR DONORS.

Warning per the police records A__ Ray____ D_______ AKA Styles and Dancer per police records is a dangerous person convicted of holding a knife to his now ex wife's throat. Arrested for DUI in Texas, served jail time in Texas. Spent 10 years in the UK to avoid paying child support and now has a $50,000 NYS tax warrant. All on public records. He is not a community activist he is a danger who preys on residents. That is why he does not live in "the family" homestead but rents a room on Goethals drive. He is banned due to past behavior.

I don't see the relevance of 11:26's post, not to say the truth. But since the person in question is not running for public office what is the point of posting such a personal attack here. Have you ever noticed that when anyone speaks up to oppose or criticize the republicans they are subject to personal character assassination. Most of it is a waste of time since the republicans always win. What is the point? I think this post probably ought to be removed.

SCATS said...

To 8:49AM ~~ We contemplated not posting it. In reality, few will have a clue about who this person is anyway (not sure if we even really know). Does the character of an outspoken person (i.e. politically vocal/active) in the community matter?

Anonymous said...

I think it serves a public service if people are being mislead by someone who is not trustworthy. If they are not running for office why would anyone link this to a democrat or republican? Why not just a public service message?

The person referenced by 11:26 post has chosen to establish himself as a public figure and established a Facebook page to develop that position as well as support political candidates. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1521783504720206/
In doing so he is a PUBLIC FIGURE and the public has every right to know his background.

ARD has chosen to attack and criticize elected officials including the County Exec and Supervisor Reilich along with most of Greece officials. He has been tolerated in this effort, even though evidence suggests he isn't a voter or US Citizen. ARD appears to have avoided US Citizenship for some reason.
The record of ARD having outstanding Tax Warrants for nonpayment of Child Support, and record of his Divorce are public documents available to anyone with a computer willing to look.

ARD made the choice to harass politicians and public officials in the British manner of heckling, and by that choice made himself and his records a matter the public should also consider when reading his opinions. That is equitable just as it is equitable to publish records of any candidate or public employee.

Actually, Art is pretty well known in Greece. He headed up the Greece Neighborhood Association for years. He works the community pretty hard and attends all the town meetings. I think he WANTS to be known as the go-to guy in town. He hands his business cards out to everyone he meets and makes it a point to be active and get involved with all sorts of town issues.

I'm not surprised about these other issues because you may remember SCATS, or others here, he got in trouble for attacking former Town Supervisor Roger Boily's son at a town board meeting years ago.

Lately though he has turned more publicly political with this campaign season coming up and is supporting and working for a number of democrat and republican candidates (Ed Gartz, Jim Leary, Todd Baxter).

With his background and these issues I really don't think any political candidate would want to be associated or be seen with him, but to each their own!

SCATS said...

To 2:12PM ~~ Regarding linking to a party: Remember, this is Greece ... where Roger Boily made even the notion of running for BOE political and party-based.

To 3:07PM ~~ Yeah, forget the 8 years of hell under Obama ;)

To 3:45PM ~~ Several points ... First is that FB page is not open to all. SCATS, among others, can't view it. Second, we believe that if you PAY TAXES in this state/country, then you have the right to express your voice on whatever topics/candidates you choose. Our electeds are supposed to REPRESENT ALL, even non-citizens. Look at what's going on nationally and you will see plenty of that. Thirdly, public records are just that. If you don't want your nose rubbed into the dirt of your past then it's best to obey the laws of the land, regardless any political activities, right?

To 4:40PM ~~ Your first paragraph is quite on point. We'd go further and say that he enjoys having control, too, based upon our somewhat unfortunate experiences with him on this BLOG. We believe that our unwillingness to give him control on here or our FB page is what led to our inability to access his FB now. It's of no consequence to us.

So........Where has Jim Leary been? He is supposed to be running for office but he is no where to be seen. Is he seriously running for supervisor or not?????

SCATS said...

To 5:46AM ~~ As usual, the Democrats in Greece are asleep at this crucial time. It's bad enough that they start late!!

Its looks like that Daughton guy has a pretty sordid past. It doesn't surprise me that he's become very tight with the tax boy Rainbow Rick Antelli. You can catch Artie hanging out at the front counter or over at the Overtime Bar in Antelli Plaza ingesting copious amounts of liquid courage! Birds of a feather...

It's nuts that anyone running for office would align themselves with a guy that's had so many run ins with the law. Why give your opponent that opportunity to use that against you? I know lots of candidates get caught up with shady characters but shame on you if you know this guy's background and still keep him on your team! I definitely wouldn't take a freakin' picture with him!!! The shirtless one's especially gross me out.

Riddle me this...

ARD is working for both the Republican candidate (Eddie Gartz) AND the Democratic candidate (Rumella Cameron) for 2nd Ward Councilmember.

Umm, huh?

Maybe he's hedging his bets that whomever wins will expunge his criminal police records for him.

LET'S GET OFF THE TOPIC OF ARD please.

Anonymous said...

Yes, good point SCATS, who really cares about some activist with dyslexia. More importantly, we've never been told why Rick Antelli isn't running for Tax Receiver again. The word in law enforcement circles is that he and his business are being investigated by the FBI. I swear these guys must have a headquarters here by now. The po-po say he's been installing new cameras all over the plaza so he can see them coming and take off out the "back door!"

Anonymous said...

Antelli is old enough to collect his Social Security and too dumb to be running a bookie shop. Hell the Tax collector job was just payback for not running a Primary against Hairburger in his last run.

Antelli wanted the Assessor job when the CROOK had to leave and Bonanza became Acting assessor. Hairburger wouldn't give it to Ricky, so Ricky set up to Primary since he was just short of Term Limiting on Council.

Ricky was cheek to cheek with Rahn feeding him 411 back then and the plan was for Ricky to Primary. Rahn was prepared to dump a truckload of information to the public, including a DPW truck crash that was covered up. Remember at that time Rahn was still in Tom Cook's good graces. Problem was Cook wasn't real thrilled with Antelli running because Cook knew how smart Ricky is.

Antelli was sheparded from Town Council to County Leg to Tax Collector by Reilich, in exchange for Ricky's services, including plowing snow at 299 Swamp Rd.

The number of cameras set up in Greece and around the rock quarry is unreal. Any thought the feds will come near Greece is only wishful thinking. Feds DON'T waste manhours.

Merritt Rahn has been accused of shredding documents.
I bet he gave some of these documents to his friends.

Like the arrest report of the new assessor or the accident cover up report
of Big Bill and a few other interesting reports that would be damaging

If these reports were to surface and a scandal came out - the elected official might lose the upcoming election or worse yet, have to resign from office.

KimJungBilly sold his soul to the devil who really runs the City to get the call made to MayaGrady so 20 minutes of triple redundant 911 recordings evaporated.

KimJungBilly is useful to David, for the moment, so noo Dem Dollars will flow to Leary to unseat David's boy.
Grady is gone, collecting his ill gotten gains.
The man who made things evaporate is retired in Florida collecting a fat pension.

Rahn wasn't smart enough to print the job of the Town salt truck ramming the civilian car. He did need a haircut the afternoon of the crash, and Ricky made notes.
Then 4th Ward Cuncilman Ricky lacked the balls to walk into the DPW garage for a look, and Rahn wouldn't go for him. Ricky tried to get somebody else to do the job for him, and as usual, Ricky came up SHORT.

Pieces of the salt truck are resting comfortably in the Flynn Rd landfill.
Nobody at DPW had the brains to photograph the salt truck sitting inside the garage when it was tarped.

The check for the replacement car the young female driver got was cut from the Friends of John Auberger account. It was not written to the car dealer or the young woman.

KimJungBilly disappeared it!

To 7:54pm: YMCA - He charges the Y a permit fee when they take little pre-school kids to Sawyor Park. Legion Post -- I am sure your elevator came from "Assemblyman" Reilich not "Supervisor" Reilich. When he was an assemblyman he found all kinds of money for community organizations. Now that he is Supervisor all State monies go strictly to Town government owned facilities and nothing goes to community nonprofit groups. Barnard FD -- How much did he sell the band stand to you that you used to be able to use for free and how much is that permit fee for your band concerts ?

Perhaps if you call the KING out on his actions he tries to buy you off.

Where did the Auto Pound go?

KimJungBill spent a ton of taxpayer dollars building it over behind the Library, right there on Town Hall Castle grounds.
He even went the extra mile and installed privacy slats so his friend's cars wouldn't be exposed to public ridicule for being in the Pound.

Last weekend, some men in green trucks slipped in and took the fence down. A Red Town truck caught them in the act, along with another camera not controlled by KimJungBill.

Where did the fence go?
Is it now at 299 Swamp Rd protecting all of the County's surplus asphalt millings hauled there by R&W after the Town loaded them?

Were any cars ever held in the Pound?
Was there a payoff to go back to private towing contractors impounding cats?

WHAT'S UP FOLKS?

Is the Dem candidate for Supervisor looking into this? He was a Detective for years, surely he can find the answers.
He really needs to expose this disappearing act.
