ILLEGAL ELECTION ACTIVIITES IN VIOLATION
OF TAX EXEMPT STATUS
Mount Vernon Exposed has learned that this year’s school board election is about more than looting the district dry of the $108 Million school bond. A clergy insider told Mount Vernon Exposed that if the United Black Clergy is able to pull of their sick plot of getting Kevin Bunch elected, the newly comprised school board will vote to approve another charter school.
The new charter school would be political payback to Bishop Edwars, President of the United Black Clergy and also doubles as the Pastor of Friendship Worship Center, which will also be the site of the new charter school. Homeowners in the City of Mount Vernon can kiss the last several years of zero percent tax increases goodbye, if United Black Clergy candidate Kevin Bunch gets elected. Where are the feds?
Bishop has been struggling for years with a next to zero congregation. The jiving Bishop lost several tenants at his church that left because of the excessive, above market rental fees charged by the Bishop. The Armani Charter School, which caused a firestorm in the community, was also a tenant of Bishop Edwars. Bishop Edwars wants to keep the gravy train running.
New York State has already denied Bishop Edwars a charter school on several occasions. Mount Vernon taxpayers and students cannot afford to have valuable resources taken out of the already struggling school district to support the Bishop’s lavish lifestyle. Where are the feds?
This year’s School Board debates have turned into an absolute joke. Ministers pick moderators who favor their candidates and are hostile to apposing candidates. The debates at Greater Centennial and The Dole Center were an embarrassment and a set up. Further debates should be boycotted, because The UBC does not know the meaning of fairness and will stop at nothing until they get their paws on the loot.

Mount Vernon Exposed also urges the residents of Mount Vernon to contact the U.S. Justice Department at (914) 993-1900 to demand that all past school bonds be investigated.
