To the Editor,
The political trend in The United States is to elect the un-politician. How C. Scott Vanderhoef, a politician with a questionable success rate, believes he deserves another chance at elected office is beyond me.
While he held the county executive position, his budgets were prepared in crayon and year after year he grossly over-estimated the predicted sales tax revenues, leading to budget shortfalls.
One year he created a fantasy budget based on a new sales tax on cigarettes, which required approval from Albany. Of course, he never got that approval, which led to yet another year of budget short falls. In the end he left office with the county in huge debt. Mr. Vanderhoef enjoy your retirement.
