The Man That Brags That He Flushed $80,000 Down The Toilet In A Mayoral Bid Wants Port Chester Taxpayers to Over Pay For An SUV
The Port Chester Board of Trustee's were asked to approve the purchase of a Ford Expedition, to be used by the DPW's acting general foreman, when Bart Didden interrupted.
Trustee Bart Didden questioned Village Manager Christopher Russo on why the village was purchasing the 2011 Expedition XL SSV from a East Hanover, NJ, company instead of from nearby Rye Ford / Subaru dealer that is a friend of his.
Russo told Didden that the New Jersey company, Warnock Fleet, currently has a contract with New York State. Since the company deals exclusively with municipalities, it's able to offer vehicles at a lower cost and thus save Port Chester taxpayers money.
The Expedition will cost the village $26,620.85. It will be used to transport personnel and goods, and will be outfitted with a plow during the winter months.
Didden voted against the resolution to approve the purchase, apparently he wants Port Chester taxpayers to pay more for needed vehicles.
Mayor Dennis Pilla and trustees Sam Terenzi, John Branca, Daniel Brakewood and Luis Marino all voted in favor of the purchase that will save Port Chester taxpayer money.
