The following letter to the editor has been released by Northport Village Trustee Tom Kehoe regarding the Village’s hiring of a new village administrator:
Dear Damon & Jerry (Oz) Maline & Residents of Northport Village:
As you both have come to realize, the residents are seeing through your total lack of transparency. Your behind-the-scenes maneuvers in hiring are quite something.
The Village Administrator, the highest paid ($105,000 + benefits) Village employee & the person who oversees the largest portion of our budget gets arrested on Government Corruption-Felony charges related to his position as Northport’s Village Administrator, and nothing substantive has changed in the Damon & Jerry Show. It’s business as usual.
Now, without any real management changes that will work, we are about to hire a new Village Administrator, and in my view, not the person who was the most qualified from the pool of applicants — but that’s another story.
Who will oversee the new Administrator? The last Village Administrator reported to the Mayor. Maybe this guy will report to Oz?
Stay tuned folks because the Show is just getting started.
Have a Blessed New Year. Regards,
