  1. And just so you know – here’s a new “FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY” bombshell out this morning from Otis Administration critic and 2nd generation Rye police officer Tim Chittenden –

    In the run up to his September 22nd “disciplinary hearing,” Tim has researched the taxpayer costs to date for this “matter” and has added up close to $1 MILLION of billings by the city using our tax dollars as directed by Mayor Otis and his cronies to prosecute it.

    That’s right folks – $1 MILLION of our money has been paid to Rye City Corporation Council Kevin Plunkett and others to sue Tim on OUR BEHALF while we, the taxpayers, complain long and loud that we can’t afford to shoulder these ever rising and ludicrously high Rye City taxes.

    If this $1 MILLION number is even remotely close to true (even $500K would be nuts) then I believe this administration has been beyond grossly irresponsible to all of us.

  2. Ted C:

    To top it off the reason the City of Rye sued in the first place was because they said Lt. Falk, who brought the retaliatory charges to begin with, wouldn’t be able to testify because of a lawyer conflict.

    Otis, Connors and Falk erased the conflict while also erasing approximately $1,000,000 in taxpayer dollars.

    Now that Otis, Connors and Falk have erased the conflict, and approximately $1,000,000 in taxpayer funds, the City’s lawyers now say Falk is not going to testify after all.

    If Falk does not testify then he and Connors should have to pay back the $1,000,000 to the taxpayers. Maybe they can get Plunkett and Labor Attorney Vince Toomey to chip in a couple of bucks.
