The supervisor and the county legislator should be asked why they hired a non resident convicted felon, who had ties to the now deceased felon bronx state senator. This is the same senator that the supervisor also worked for providing legal council, drawing a state paycheck. There was many other qualified town residents who wanted this highway dept job. How much money was wasted to fire PO Ramon Rosado, suspended for 6 months with no pay, left unable to support his family, and was then given all back pay, pension credits and legal fees. Why was a employee hired, who also lives out of town, and just happens to have very close ties to the independence party? The above slate also has the independence line for november. There has been no proactive thinking under his leadership, no attempt to change the statue quo. Time for new leadership in Eastchester.

Robert, to answer your last question as to why an employee with close ties to the Independence party leadership was hired it's because there was a quid pro quo. Does the Eastchester Town Court really need two court clerks? It never has before. In this age of cutbacks there are always great jobs available if you have the proper political hook. As far as P.O. Rosado he is doing great. He's on a better job making more $$$ and just received one of MVPD's top awards. His "punishment" turned into a windfall for himself and town labor attorney Vince Toomey.

Does anyone else see a conflict with the Eastchester GOP chairman, also being the appointed town attorney? Appointed by a all republician board? He lead Eastchester down a very expensive path with the Ramon Rosado case, which cost the taxpayers a lot of money.

Story today in Journal News about Independence party wanting jobs for endorsements. No lack of jobs in Eastchester. Too bad town jobs no longer are given to qualified town residents first. Politics at its worst.
