To the Times of Ti:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you (Crown Point residents) for your support for the past 37 years. I have served the town in several different positions: town justice, town councilman, deputy supervisor, assessor and as of late chairman of the assessors. During this time I have worked under five different supervisors and I don’t know how to say this any other way then to just simply say that (Bethany) Kosmider has created a mess. She has not accomplished one thing that she said she would 1 year and 10 months ago.
On leaving this job, I took a good hard look at the people’s assessments that have been doing all the whining, complaining and personal attacking with assessments, articles and pictures of properties in the newspaper. Laura Harvey seems to be doing most of the whining. Harvey has been to the review board for the last three years to get her assessment lowered – she pays a total school tax bill of $0. So, I will let you be the judge. Compare this tax amount to your’s. Maybe we should pay her to live in Crown Point? There is good news for Laura, the bridge to Vermont will be open soon and if she is that dissatisfied with the town of Crown Point then maybe she should take it!
