    Question Taxpayer funded Benefits?

    It seems that what is going to happen is if terms are changed, every person who passes their fifth year of "Service" would then be able to get a state pension benefit plan.

    Why not show the cost of present personal benefits they are ( or will be) eligible for, along with NEW YORK STATE pensions-- then let the people vote.

    I believe they would and are eligible to choose from what's called " a menu" of benefits. As I understand it they can have any benefit (insurance,health-care and so on.) county employees receive.

    Some cry about the working mans wages, then work "part time" and receive executive level benefits for life with just "5 years service." The control board froze wages and refuse to negotiate unless Unionized employees give something up first- what about the wages and benefits of the Legislators and Control boards?

    How do you feeling about full benefits/entitlements disclosure for all elected/appointed officials City and County?

    Just an idea , what do you think? Thanks for your time and i hope this post doesn't get removed - an answer would be great!

    First - how many average voters even know what a FOIL request is or used for?
    Second - this is this but another tool in the self serving maze to cloud material from the public.

    A foil request must be first acquired by going to a government office.Then you tell them what info you wish. If you don't know the inside document language your request is denied or wrong info given.

    Also they can create and have in place a system where by each office has different names for the same items.

    Then if you are lucky enough to get the blanket info - who do you think will tell you how to break it down. Do you think the Elected or appointed official your looking at will help you?

    You are obviously well versed in these areas. If it is all that easy and there is nothing to worry about why are they not addressing this question? Is there one of our "PUBLIC SERVANTS" that will post this info when asking for your vote? No they only offer stories of personal sacrifice and concern for us voters.

    You know the new better educated voters are quickly seeing that the system only feeds its own growth. By increasing its size it increases its necessity.
    Government creates nothing, it only redistributes our tax dollars.

    Thank God for FREE Speech!
