|MAYOR DAVIS AND ROBERTA APPUZZO|
Criminal Convict Mayor Ernie Davis has put his own selfish needs above the taxpayers he was elected to serve by refusing to step down after pleading guilty to (2) Federal tax crimes.
In just a few short months, Mayor Davis will be hauled off to jail for as many as 6 months, but as few as 0 months depending on Davis' level of cooperation with Federal authorities.
Mount Vernon Democratic City Committee 1st Vice Chairman Serepher Halevi has been implicated in breaking the law in Mount Vernon by doing work on a site she has selected for a new day care facility located at 50 E. Sandford Blvd.
Sources have told Mount Vernon Exposed that Mayor Davis, a close friend and political ally of Halevi, gave permission to Halevi to start work without a building permit, even through Davis had full knowledge that Halevi did not file plans with the Mount Vernon Building Department.
One insider close to Davis, told Mount Vernon Exposed that there are "tens of dozens" of projects being worked throughout the City of Mount Vernon that the buildings department has no knowledge of and that Davis personally reviews the architectural plans and gives the go ahead to start construction without obtaining necessary said permits.
The City Charter only grants authority to the building commissioner to issue building permits.
Sources have also told Mount Vernon Exposed that a complaint was filed with the Department of Buildings for the illegal work being done at 50 E. Sandford Blvd. According to the source, Mount Vernon Building officials did a site visit yesterday and confirmed that illegal work was in fact being done. As a result, a "STOP WORK" order and a violation were issued for the illegal work.
The property at 50 E. Sandford Blvd is owned by One West 125th Street, LLC, an entity controlled by New York State Supreme Court Justice Donna Mills. Judge Donna Mills was censured by the Commission for Judicial Conduct for driving her Rolls Royce while drunk and for playing the race card. Judge Mills told investigators that she was pulled over because she was "black". The property was purchased by Judge Milles’s organization for $800,000 in 2008.
Davis' continues to display arrogant behavior on a daily basis. Davis has instructed his regime to "continue business as usual". Unfortunately, taxpayers will ultimately be the one footing the bill for Davis' corruption via declining property values, high taxes, and record levels of violent crime.
Davis' has given his blessing that "Mount Vernon is Open for Business". Word on the street to contractors, that it ok to start construction projects and do massive interior renovations in Mount Vernon without required building permits and paying building permit fees.
