CAN YOU HELP US GET A TAPED COPY OF ONE OF NEIL PAGANO'S INFAMOUS PORT CHESTER IDA MELT DOWNS?
We Are Currently Conducting A Journalistic Investigation About Some Reports Of Cronyism And Patronage At The Port Chester Industrial Development Agency (IDA).
Some unconfirmed reports seem to indicate that this cronyism and patronage reach into the upper levels of County Executive Rob Astorino's Administration via Port Chester Trustee Joseph Kenner who has a lucrative county job with the Astorino government.
We understand that there maybe audio tapes of an out of control Port Chester Industrial Development Agency Chairman Neil Pagano having a big fat out of control meltdown at a meeting of the local IDA.
There may have been an angry slip of the tongue from Chairman Pagano, who recently moved to Port Chester to take over his deceased father's local real estate empire.
If you have access to these Pagano tape or tapes, then we would like to hear them and get a copy to and post it at Port Chester Roundup, so the taxpayers of Port Chester can hear what is going on at the local IDA.
For to0 many years the problems with the Port Chester Industrial Development Agency have been swept under the rug with no accountability to taxpayers.
Recently, a local Port Chester development corporation was created in-name separate only from the Port Chester IDA.
Astorino administration employee and village trustee Joe Kenner is on the board of directors of this new additional Port Chester agency which will have the same board members as the Port Chester Industrial Development Agency.
Kenner who is wearing a lot of political hats is also Neil Pagano's vice chairman of the Port Chester IDA.
Wouldn't it be better to open up the process and bring more Port Chester residents in to help out instead of having kenner wearing four or five hats?
The Port Chester IDA should be another way for the village to promote and enhance employment opportunities and help foster an environment that says Port Chester is serious supporting projects that are beneficial to residents.
It should not be insulated club for political insiders that isn't interested in welcoming partisipation from Port Chester residents.
