Tell The Town of Oyster Bay to STOP Wasting Our Tax Dollars on Political Mail

Joe Saladino, The Town of Oyster Bay Town Board

Mailer

Dear Town of Oyster Bay Residents,

We are calling on Joe Saladino, [Appointed] Supervisor of The Town of Oyster Bay, to stop using our tax dollars to fund their campaign mailers!

This week, Oyster Bay residents banded together to sue Joseph Saladino and the Town Board and DEMAND that they stop sending out political mailers on our dime!

In January, Joseph Saladino was appointed to the Town Supervisor position by the Town board, and since then has repeatedly used his office to campaign for reelection on our tax dollars.

“From the inception of defendant Saladino’s appointment and continuing up to the present, the defendants have continuously and systematically used their positions and taxpayers’ dollars to publish and distribute self-promoting campaign material,” [1]

With each Town Mailing costing upwards of $40,000, the Town has wasted hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars, for what? To help their own political campaigns, meanwhile, the Town Of Oyster Bay has continuously raised our taxes, increased our debt, destroyed our credit.


It seems like our officials are more concerned about signage and photo ops than providing essential services and improvements, and we want to change that!

Please sign and share the petition demanding the Town of Oyster Bay do their jobs and STOP wasting our money on political propaganda!

Oyster Bay Town of, New York

To: Joe Saladino, The Town of Oyster Bay Town Board
From: [Your Name]

As residents of the Town, we are appalled by your wasteful spending and blatant self-promotion on our dime.

With each Town Mailing costing over $40,000, the Town has wasted hundreds of thousands of our tax dollars, for what? To help your own campaigns, meanwhile, the Town Oyster Bay has continuously raised our taxes, increased our debt, destroyed our credit.

We are the only municipality in NY State with a Junk Bond Credit Rating, we have more debt than North Hempstead & Hempstead combined, we've had eight Public Officials arrested in the past year, our roads are in dire need of repair, and you are spending OUR tax dollars for your own political campaign!

We are calling on The [Appointed] Supervisor and the entire Town Board to stop sending out political mailings at the taxpayer's expense!
