Over the past few weeks Mayor Young and his handpicked slate of puppets have been causing divide and confusion amongst Mount Vernon voters by scaring them with the threat of a Tea Party takeover. It is evident that the Mayor Young and his slate for City Council Richard Thomas and Debra Reynolds have no clue as to run the City of Mount Vernon. All three candidates lack any platform and any proposal from the three involves raising taxes on already cash strapped Mount Vernon taxpayers.
Richard Thomas must come clean with voters and explain to them that he is part of the problem and not part of the solution. As a city councilman, if elected, Mr. Thomas will be responsible for making the laws in the City of Mount Vernon. However, Mr. Thomas and his mentor Mayor Young have shown complete disregard for the laws of Mount Vernon. Mr. Thomas and Mayor Young have willingly and knowingly violated the ordinance of placing signs on public property.

Mr. Thomas’ high handed behavior didn’t end there. Mr. Thomas illegally constructed a sign at his campaign headquarters at 107 South 4th Avenue without the required permits and approvals from the Department of Buildings and cheated Mount Vernon taxpayers out of much needed revenue. Comptroller and Mayoral candidate Maureen Walker is the only candidate that followed the law regarding signs. The Commissioner of Buildings even went so far as to require Mrs. Walker to hire an architect to submit plans regarding the signs at her campaign headquarters. Mr. Thomas’ way of thinking is quite dangerous for Mount Vernon as he already thinks he is above the law.
With less than 24 hours until polls open, voters must vote NO to the entire team of Mayor Young. Can you imagine another 4 years of Mayor Young, Richard Thomas, and Debra Reynolds?
