I have a very simple quiz for you to see what kind of Westchester County Legislator you would be. It goes like this: let's say you were faced with two choices.
a) A fire training facility has a severely leaking roof that has already caused two firefighters to slip and fall and incur injuries. It requires a vote from the legislators for the funds to repair the roof, or
b) You are not happy that a county employee, although he is following the county charter’s requirements, has not provided you with information that you would like to have. You, a legislator, have not adequately made a case to receive this data. You can vote to issue a subpoena to a Westchester County employee (who works for the legislators) to mandate that he provide the data for you.
If you chose b, the subpoena, then you exhibit the aptitude found in most of the Democrat majority members of the current Board of Legislators. On Monday, that's exactly what they did. They chose to ignore the public safety of our county's firefighters in the interest of wasting more of the taxpayer’s hard earned tax dollars.
