Kathy Hochul and Mary Hosler have more in common than their last names starting with “H”. Both made pledges to run a more open government. Both are falling short.

Hochul did change “Three men in a room” to “Two men and a lady in a room”. However, that did not improve transparency during the budget process.

Mary Hosler WhiplashIn Evans, Mary Hosler’s denial of documents requested under the Freedom of Information Law (FOIL) raises questions about how the taxpayer’s money is being spent. Denied documents include those showing how much COVID money the Town of Evans received and how that money was spent. Also denied were W2’s for elected officials and those town employees earning $50,000 a year or more.

The Town of Evans was audited by the NYS OSC in 2002 and 2012. Maybe it is time for state to take a look at how Evans is spending the taxpayer’s money? [ Click Here To Download the past state audits ]

FREEDOM OF SPEECH

Vladimir Lenin 100wWhy should freedom of speech and freedom of the press be allowed? Why should a government which is doing what it believes to right allow itself to be criticized? It would not allow opposition by lethal weapons. Ideas are much more fatal things than guns. Why should any man be allowed to buy a printing press and disseminate pernicious opinions calculated to embarrass the government?  

Vladimir Lenin
