For those who haven’t heard yet, on March 7th 2017 the East Meadow Library held an election to exspand its library and to have the homeowners taxes hiked. Now first of all all these Library and Firehouse elections should be well publicized and held at same time when the voting takes place for the school budge and not in the confines of Library building or the Firehouse . The library’s are employee heavy.. You’ll find more employees there than patrons.to make matters even worse basically their clientele almost exclusively exists of vagrants or homeless individuals who hang out there for there strictly for air conditioning. These employees are for the most part the same folks who call you up at general election time to get out the vote.. All the party faithful.. Self serving. You can access any and all info today from either your computer or smart phone.. Hence what do we need a library for anymore.. Just take a gander at your tax statement for what look at what your paying for library services and your eyes gonna pop right out of your head. We would like to know was this election conducted under the supervision of the board of elections. If not so than who or what entity monitored the voting process., From what from information that we gather this vote was not publicized on any media outlet.. It was merely posted on the library wall .. Taxpaying Homeowners”have the right to be notified when there is an election which the outcome will result in a property tax hike. At this particular time the East Meadow demographics show a large senior citizen contingent plus a large immagrant population who by in large remain illerterate in English and so we can’t see for the life of us why these two groups even need a library and would want to vote for the increase. The taxpaying homeowners are being taken to the cleaners.. They are getting fleeced big time and there seems to be not one elected official whatsoever who is willing to step up and advocate for them..
From now perhaps may we suggest that everyone go directly to town hall turn your pockets inside out plus put your wallets on the desk and say ‘Here take whatever you want but please just leave me us a small amount so can perhaps we can can by a burger from the dollar store so we don’t starve to death.
