From State Senator Craig Wilcox:
To Nunda Township residents (and specifically to those within municipality boundaries), I have been working on legislation to address the unchecked levels of power of Township Road Commissioners, and a few bills have passed the General Assembly and been signed into law.
One bill that has not moved addresses the concern of tax dollars being siphoned from road and bridge funds (shared with municipalities) to hard road funds by various road commissioners.
This accounting move does not require public input, no referendum for voters to voice their opinion, and does not require concurrence from the affected municipalities.
The only option for voters is to elect a road commissioner and trustees who have promised to roll back this taxpayer avoidance accounting maneuver.
For this reason I recommend supporting Eric Dowd for Nunda Road Commissioner, and trustees Parrish, Parrish, and Donahue for the Feb 23rd primary.
