Time for a Change

Time for change in Patchogue Village. You can make the difference.

For years, like many residents of Patchogue I have watched from the sidelines as our elected officials carried the ball and made a couple of good plays. But, then they started to throw the game to the bookies (developers) and lost sight of the ball (residents).

My question is: How many apartments and condos does Patchogue need? I say no more. Folks, look around Patchogue, we have more than our fair share. I heard Patchogue is the Queen of the south shore. Well, if we continue down the path of our elected officials we will be the "Queens" of the south shore. I think Patchogue Village can be the Pearl of the South Shore with proper marketing. We have some of the finest restaurants on Long Island, we have a beautiful theater on Main Street. We are the gateway to Watch Hill and Davis Park. Come and visit Patchogue Village the "Pearl of the South Shore" stay for awhile and visit our waterfront, restaurants and theater. I'm sorry I got carried away....

So, I am for change. We need fresh ideas and new leaders in our village. So come March 20th, if the residents of Patchogue Village want the same old crap than so be it.  But if you want to see a fresh start then... think of YOU the "Resident" first. I remember a motto when I was president of Westhampton Rotary.  "Service above Self" is what's needed in Government.

And, "that's what I'm thinking".

Ms Devlin, at what village board meeting was the resolution passed allowing these docks to be given away. Also FINS always gave the village free slips for village owned boats.

Please explain this? The village gave away docks that were in terrible condition to Leeward Marina for dock space. The docks could not be used by the village but Leeward Marina could use them. The mayor did not know about, but Devlin and Hilton did. Unknown if the village board approved giving away village property. Leeward Marina owners gave thousands to mayor for 2012 re-election. Village has new floating docks but not going to use them. MAKES PERFECT SENSE!

There is no reason the marina should not be open, the pilings are fine and so is the dock around the marina. The dock that were giving away looked fine and that's coming from a dock builder with 25 years experience myself. It's not right this allowed to happen. It's scary that they can lie and get out of every scandal they get caught in.

McGiff saved the day! Now that's a laugh! McGiff has done nothing but make up stuff to suit his sick and twisted needs and those of his cronies. NOTHING WAS DONE ILLEGALLY. Read the minutes to the village board meetings! It's all there. THINK FOR YOURSELVES because obviously you've been drinking R1 Kool-Aid!
