|TAX DELINQUENT FORMER MAYOR ERNEST D. DAVIS|
The political season in Mount Vernon is at its peak. The deals have been made. Voters must remain focused and thoroughly investigate all persons running for office. The conflicts of interest and corruption must be detected before one takes office.
In Mount Vernon, the politicians tend to recycle themselves and reemerge as new characters. In reality, they all went to the same school and were taught by the same teachers. This is true of Mayor Ernest Davis, Mayor Clinton Young, Karen Watts, Lisa Copeland, Serepher Halevi, Terrence Horton, Steve Horton, Loretta Hottinger, Ron Detres, Michael Justino, Eileen Justino, Ruth Hassel Thompson, and Diane Atkins. We will explain at a later date how they are all connected to one another.
Mayor Ernest Davis is seriously behind on his tax obligations to the City of Mount Vernon. Mayor Davis currently owes $38,502.85 in back taxes on his property located at 47 S. 5th Avenue. Davis also runs his campaign headquarters at that site.
It appears that Mayor Davis is starting his campaign off with a smell that reeks of corruption. City Council President Karen Watts and DPW Commissioner Terrence Horton, two of Davis protégés, are also behind on their tax obligations to the City of Mount Vernon. It was just recently brought to our attention that Lisa Copeland has been promised the job of DPW Commissioner in exchange for her support of Davis’ campaign.
It is unclear as to who Mayor Davis will make the Corporation Counsel. Some names have been thrown around, but we will let you know as soon as we speak to the potential candidates.
