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.

This translates into a 6% tax hike that the people will pay on just this batch of the previous administration’s “undocumented loans” at 1% with no payback until 2046. There is another $10 million outstanding that we must deal with soon.
I will continue to fight for what’s right and do my best to collect the missing millions from the cronies of the previous administration. It is a shame that the Deep State and Deep City Council are working in cahoots to conceal this truth; however, the reality is the people’s money was stolen and their secrets are no longer secret. Their only motive is to attempt to de-legitimize me; so that when doubts are raised about them and their role in covering up the “Missing Millions” you don’t know who to believe.
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.

Mayor Thomas will face Council President André Wallace, Shawyn Patterson-Howard and Clyde Isley in the June 25th Democratic Primary in his bid for a second term in office.
