We are an engaged group of residents from Village of Mamaroneck and the area who care about how our tax dollars are used.
Our taxes help pave our roads, fund our schools and provide critical services to the Village of Mamaroneck, Town of Mamaroneck, and Village of Larchmont. In the Village of Mamaroneck alone, just in the past decade, millions of hard earned taxpayer dollars have been spent on lawsuits against the Village. Developers are often turned down in spite of a property’s zoning rights. We cannot continue down this road.
The pandemic has caused severe financial distress for many in the area. We need jobs and tax revenue. We do not need those dollars wasted away to benefit a few, rather than many.
SPENDING ON LITIGATION
Watch how much our Village is spending on litigation in 2021 in real time.
FACTS ABOUT OUR VILLAGE
The VOM is currently spending tens of thousands of dollars on legal fees for Planning Board member Cindy Goldstein, who is suing the Village! That’s right, the Village is paying the lawyers to sue …. wait for it… the village!
We are also paying for Ms. Goldstein’s lawsuit against the Ethics Board, who unanimously decided she should be removed from the Planning Board on multiple ethical issues.
Over the last decade, the Village has spent millions of our taxpayer dollars on defending lawsuits from developers – and the developers end up winning in court!
We just cut $2.5 million out of our VOM budget – can we afford this wasteful spending on lawyers?
