SUPERVISOR SALADINO TARGETS FAMILIES IN NEED IN AN EFFORT TO DESTORY
PLANS FOR A NEW FAMILY SUPPORT CENTER
Oyster Bay Democrats Hold Town Supervisor Accountable for Disregarding
Public Health Amidst National Healthcare Crises
JERICHO, NY – This week, Supervisor Saladino and his Town Board attempted to rally residents to stop plans for a new Family Support Center that would provide housing, childcare and counseling for those in need.
Amidst a bevy of lawsuits, ethics violations, and outstanding dangerous code compliance issues, Saladino has also announced his support for marijuana dispensaries in areas throughout Oyster Bay.
“Joe Saladino is telling us that he is pro-marijuana and anti-family,” says Dave Mejias, Town Leader, Town of Oyster Bay Democratic Committee. “This is a guy who gave out $700k in raises in the dark of night to line the pockets of his political cronies, while thousands of his residents were sick, food insecure and in fear of losing their homes.”
Notorious for his illegal backroom deals, abuse of taxpayer dollars, and self-serving political tactics, Saladino’s latest stunt is just another blatant disregard for public health.
The height of hypocrisy, Saladino has long ignored dangerous garbage infested, abandoned buildings, illegal zoning, and code compliance complaints. Now he, and his Deputy Supervisor, Gregory Carman, Jr. are using taxpayer dollars to stop the development of a Family Support Center during the Covid-19 pandemic that has devasted so many lives.
“He is abandoning an opportunity to actually help those in need, yet we see his weekly taxpayer funded, self-promotional political mailers without any information on how residents can tune in and participate in a town meeting,” said Amanda Field, Oyster Bay Democratic Supervisor Candidate. “Consistently evading resident input is a major red flag.”
It should only be expected that a politician who has inhumanely killed helpless animals at the Town Shelter, and routinely lied to the public would show the same disrespect for those in the greatest need.
“Ultimately we are all judged by how we treat the least among us,” said Mejias. “Saladino is vilifying people in need when he should be working to help them.”
