Reader says Aronson, Pucciarelli and Hauck are subverting the public’s right to be a part of the process

The parking ticket accusation as a defense of Aronsohn and his running mates’ violation of the Sunshine law is pretty pathetic. As citizens we should be asking ourselves why our mayor and his campaign team are so bent on getting all of these developments through with little or no cost benefit analysis being done. The whole thing reminds me of how Valley got the Master Plan amended – through back room deals and closed door meetings. Does anyone remember when half the people wanting to attend the Planning Board vote at GW were shut out?

The Village is in a very scary place right now. The ticket of Aronson, Pucciarelli and Hauck are clearly operating and voting as one. With this majority, they appear to be meeting privately to determine what they think is right for the rest of us. They are subverting the public’s right to be a part of the process and trying to cram their own ideas down our throats.

And then when someone has the audacity to question the Mayor or his team we get this type of political vindictiveness. Parking tickets? Really?

  1. At the meeting, the three amigos were given the opportunity on several occasions to apologize directly to Councilwoman Walsh for their behavior. Though Aronsohn made a general apology to everyone for the way the meeting went, NOT ONE OF THEM ACTUALLY APOLOGIZED TO WALSH. These are the cowards we expect to stand up and do the right things for the Village?

  2. In our system of government the public’s rigjt to be part of the process really ends with election of publc offiicals . We the people elect politicians with the idea in mind that they will look out for our best intrest’s. Our participation functionally ends there. We can’t vote on issues unless they’re put out to referendum, the council doesn’t have to have public speaking time although rwd does, so in the long we are victims of the sytem not neccessarily the politicans. Even though our council acted completely unprofessionally to blame them for a system thats been in place for centuries seems unfair.

  3. The resident of Ridgwood will forget about this now that Mayor Aronsohn fell on his sword. Everybody thinks now it all going to be good. Another fine job by Whitehorse Strategist, announce that you are going to fire Gabbert to divert the the attention from them. Then show that you are will to work together. All this fiasco did was to teach them to be sneakier and not to get caught . “You can change the spots on a leopard” in this case Jackals

  4. I agree #3 that they will only be even sneakier. I have no faith that the 3 Amigos will change at all. It is nothing but sad.

  5. Pretty sad when Benedict Riche looks good!
    Walsh is the only one with any real intestinal fortitude on the council.
