I have written in the past about the Honor Fight of Rochester honoring our World War II veterans and now the Honor Flight team has expanded its mission.
Honor Fight Rochester is now seeking men and women who served in the armed forces during the Korean War (1950-1953) to sign-up for a free Honor Fight to Washington D.C. to visit the Korean War Memorial. The trip is free to veterans. The program also remains open to World War II veterans. There are 5,384 Korean War Veterans in the Monroe County Area.
Korean War veterans are encouraged to register for an Honor Flight Rochester mission by going online at www.honorflightrochester.org. Paper applications are available at the Webster Town Hall. More than 1,225 veterans have now flown from Rochester since the local organization began full scale fights in 2009.
Relay for Life
Just a reminder that Webster’s Relay for Life will take place this year on Saturday, June 1st. You can check out the web site www.relayforlife.org/websterny for current event status including top teams and fundraisers for ideas. This is a great event to participate in and/or sponsor, and I hope that Webster will again provide funds for the operation of the Hope Lodge Hospitality House. For direct contact please email Laurie.email@example.com with any questions you might have.
Only in Albany
Just two weeks ago Comptroller DiNapoli announced that the STAR Program had found duplicated and improper exemptions totaling over $13 million and by 2015-2016 fiscal year it could increase to $73 million. That is our taxpayer dollars that are getting thrown away without Albany fixing the system.
Now last week Senate Legislators announced that they want to start up the STAR Rebate Program again. Does this make any sense to you? They want to send out checks in a system that is already filled with fraud and corruption without fixing the system? They will not give the local governments the tools needed to take care of the fraud of $13 million, but they will send out checks in late October to refund monies for the school taxes that you all ready paid for in your school tax bill in August. This does not make sense to me how about you?
If you should you have any questions about your town government, please feel free to contact me during regular business hours at (585) 872-7068; or email me anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org
