|EMBATTLED MAYOR ELECT RICHARD THOMAS|
Last night, Mayor Elect Richard Thomas sent out an email stating that he made his first appointment to his administration. There is just one problem. The position does not exist and an appointment to the said position requires City Council approval after a long extensive process that includes several public hearings.
Richard Thomas appointed Robert Kelly as his Deputy Mayor for Public Safety. When rumors of Kelly's appointment starting circulating the streets earlier this week, the Mount Vernon Police Department was in an uproar.
The uproar was because while Kelly was head of the Detective division in Mount Vernon 90% of his arrests were illegal.
|RACIST CROOKED COP|
Kelly's policing tactics were similar to what we see today in Baltimore, MD and Ferguson, MO. Kelly instructed narcotics detectives to target only the south side of Mount Vernon and routinely instructed police officers to "plant drugs" on African Americans. Kelly was viewed as a racist by many of his colleagues.
Kelly's underling at the time was Mark Hackett, who was the supervisor of Narcotics. According to a law enforcement insider, Kelly was hard on locking up African Americans and everyday stressed the need for the officers to "get their of numbers" up.
Kelly's appointment as "Deputy Mayor for Public Safety has P.B.A. rank and file members in a frenzy and many are now banding together to formulate a plan to undermine Kelly if he is appointed to anything having to do with the Mount Vernon Police Department.
Kelly's appointment is Mayor Elect Richard Thomas' latest shenanigan and many are questioning, especially those that got him elected, if Richard is capable of running the City of Mount Vernon. Richard recklessly sent out two Robo-Calls to homeowners stating that the tax increase was going to be in the double digits when in fact the tax increase for 2016 is only 2.19%.
Mount Vernon residents are urged to call the Mount Vernon City Clerk at (914) 665-2348 to sign up to speak at the next City Council meeting to be held on Wednesday, December 23, 2015 to protest and speak out against Mayor Elect Thomas creating any new positions that will raise taxes and burden already financially strapped taxpayers.
