This just in. Mount Vernon Exposed has obtained a copy of a press release disseminated by Mount Vernon City Council President Karen. The press release goes into detail about the budget process and further clarifies rumors circulating through City Hall and around the City of Mount Vernon about alleged questionable activity by the Comptroller and the City Council. Mount Vernon Exposed has also obtained a copy of Mayor Young's veto letter to the Mount Vernon City Council.
Mayor Young and his cronies have promised that 2011 will be the same as 2010 forcing the City Council to spend thousands of dollars on outside counsel due to Corporation Counsel Loretta Hottinger's conflict of interest. It is advised that the City Council take immediate steps to prevent this type of reckless and selfish political posturing by Loretta Hottinger and Mayor Young. Taxpayers can no afford to pay for Hottingers' outright incompetence and arrogance. Hottinger is the wife of Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee 2nd Vice Chairman Ronald Detres. Detres' regularly disseminates press releases drafted by Mayor Young and company. Hottinger was spotted on Tuesday, January 11th, 2011 leaving her office with Kenneth Plummer, publisher of Mount Vernon Today, a newspaper alleged to be funded by Mayor Young. Plummer, holding what appeared to be documents on City of Mount Vernon letterhead, also got into Hottinger's navy blue Audi A6 as they left the building.
Mount Vernon Exposed will keep taxpayers informed as we follow the 2011 budget process.
