Dear Mount Vernon:
When I became Mayor in 2016, I was confronted by real threats to our fiscal future. They ranged from broken sewers, illegal dumping at Memorial Field, and millions in missing federal grant dollars.
Blowing the whistle on missing millions and revealing real political corruption has come at a dear price to my life. As we soldier forward, I need you to know that we will keep the faith and fight with all we got to defend the people of Mount Vernon. There is no reason for the people to pay the federal government $3,000,000 back because previous administrations failed to follow federal rules and their cronies who got the money are now ghost!
Caption: On March 8, 2019, a radio show caller observed that Mayor Thomas is cleaning up a cesspool in Mount Vernon on WVOX 1460 AM Radio.
I am not surprised that the people running for office (or terminated from my administration) who claim to have solutions were always a part of the problem.
Editor’s note: A couple of quick facts – Mayor Thomas was on the City Council during the previous Davis Administration.
He maintains his innocence and turned down a plea deal, Friday, in Westchester County Supreme Court, that would have kept him out of jail. Jury selection is scheduled to begin July 8th.
