MAYOR BOB SEVERANCE SEEKS TO CONTINUE SERVING NASSAU Mayor Robert J. Severance has been proud to serve as mayor of the Village of Nassau, and working to protect quality of life and the small-town feel of the community. After being urged by many village residents, Mayor Severance will seek reelection in the March 15 village elections. Bob has served as mayor since 1989 and with the help of dedicated Village Trustees has completed many projects to make the village a better place. These projects include updating the village water system, replacement of a seventy-one year-old water tank, computerization of village offices and the start of a recycling program. The recycling program has meant significant savings for the village and was ranked number one in the Eastern Rensselaer County Solid Waste Authority for the amount of waste decreased and increase in recycling. For years the community has enjoyed events at the Village Commons. Bob led volunteers in building the gazebo and shed at the Commons at no cost to taxpayers, and has used his carpentry and electrical expertise on many village projects, also saving the village money. A member of the Village Beautification Committee, Bob also assisted local Girl Scouts in constructing a playground in Ben Stanley Park. While working to protect the quality of life in Nassau, Bob has ensured needed services are provided and has also kept the tax rate stable. Bob is past Fire Commissioner for Nassau Fire District No. 1, past president of the Nassau Baseball Association and member of the Rensselaer Elks. Bob served in the US Navy for two years aboard the destroyer USS Brownson DD868 and was in the Naval Reserves for three years. Bob has worked at Benet Laboratories at the Watervliet Arsenal as an electronics technician for nearly thirty years, and graduated from Hudson Valley Community College with a degree in Industrial Electronics. He and his wife Joyce have proudly called the Village of Nassau home for 35 years, raising their children, Robert Jr. (BJ), Christopher and Jennifer in the safe community environment. Bob also enjoys spending time with his nineteen-month old granddaughter Ava and his two-month old grandson Braden.

Donations of food and money given to Doors of Hope from March 1st to April 30th will be weighed and counted. Our bottom line is: the more donations made the more of the Feinstein challenge money we will get.

Please consider joining us in this effort that makes individual donations go farther. ~Naomi Boel, D.O.H. Board Member

SPAIN FAILS TO APPEAL AND DELAYS RESTITUTION Letter to the Editor: North Greenbush Democrats are calling on former Chairman Jeff Spain, to make full restitution to the Democratic Committee of the more than $3,000 he owes pursuant to the order of a Judge. Mr. Spain was provided free attorneys by the GOP to defend the case and then engaged in a bogus appeal to delay justice, stated Chairman Dan Ashley. At least one of these attorneys was placed on the town payroll with the support of Al Spain, his brother, who is a Councilman allied with the Republican Majority on the Town Board. An ethics complaint filed against Councilman Spain seeking a determination on the appointment as a quid pro quo for the free legal services has been utterly ignored by a Town Board appointed Ethics Board which has never met, not once during its 13 months of existence. This is how Al Spain and his GOP ally Lou Desso run the town, stated Ashley. Thankfully, they do not control the Courts. The Decision and Order of a trial judge found that Spain had illegally disbursed more than $3,000 in party funds after he lost control of the Democratic Committee in September 2008. On September 10th, one day after the Primary election, a majority of the Committee notified Spain of his responsibility to protect party funds. Spain ignored this warning, emptied the checking account leaving .45 cents to run town elections. In September 2010, Spain’s lawyers obtained a stay of the order so they could appeal the decision. Instead they did nothing and time has run out resulting in the lifting of the stay issued by the court. Since his refusal to obey the court order, Jeff Spain has been further enriched with a paid town appointment to the Planning Board, thanks to the GOP led Board majority. Despite his new second income, not a penny has been returned to this Committee. Mr. Spain should reimburse the Democratic Committee and Councilman Spain should explain why he supported a town job for his brother’s attorney. The Ethics Board of North Greenbush should do the unthinkable, and meet for the first time ever. ~Dan Ashley - Chair, NGDC Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

LORI CLARK READY TO CONTINUE SERVING NASSAU ON VILLAGE BOARD Lori Clark has served as trustee of the Village of Nassau during the past four years, and has worked to protect the health, safety and quality of life of village residents. She will be seeking re-election during village elections on March 15 to allow her to continue serving on the Village Board and to continue her work for the community. Lori was first elected to the Village Board in 2007 and as a board member, was chosen to supervise the village’s recycling program. During Lori’s time supervising the recycling program, the recycling rate has been increased by 25.2 percent and the amount of waste disposed by the village reduced by 20 percent. The improved recycling rate and reduction in waste collected by the village during Lori’s supervision of the recycling program benefit taxpayers by helping the village keep costs for garbage tipping fees in check. Lori earned an associate’s degree in Business from Hudson Valley Community College and has put education to work in budgeting and keeping taxes stable while providing needed services. Along with her work on recycling and budgeting, Lori also serves as a member of the Nassau Beautification Committee, and was chairperson of the popular Nassaufest for several years. Prior to her service on the Village Board, Lori worked as secretary to the Planning and Zoning Board for both the town and village of Nassau. Lori now works for the New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) as an Associate Project Manager. In her free time, Lori enjoys gardening and outdoor activities. Lori Clark, a lifelong resident of the Village of Nassau, is the daughter of Margaret Van Deusen and the late Arthur Van Deusen. She lives on Westbrook Drive with her son Nicholas Clark, Jr.

TO THE RESIDENTS OF THE VILLAGE OF NASSAU I’ve been a proud resident of the Village of Nassau since 1987 and have moved here for many reasons, not the least of which was my belief that this would be an ideal place to raise my family. I certainly haven’t been disappointed and my family and I have enjoyed the sense of community the village provides to all of its citizens. Several years ago I decided to take an active role in public service to the village and have served on the board for two terms as a village trustee over seeing the Code Enforcement and Animal Control Officers and participating on the ERCSWMA board. I’ve found these positions to be both challenging and rewarding while also giving me the chance to give back to my fellow village residents and represent their needs and concerns. I have now decided to seek election as the Village Mayor in order to continue my efforts to improve the lives of my friends, neighbors and all village residents and businesses. My platform will be a stark departure from that of most politicians in that my efforts may result in the abolishment of my position. If elected, I intend to investigate the dissolution of the village government and the departments that provide us with services in favor of consolidation with the Town of Nassau and perhaps where more appropriate with Rensselaer County and the State of New York. I’m sure there will be some residents deeply concerned with this approach and how it will affect the delivery of services and on our taxes. But make no mistake, if our level of services will be compromised or if tax levels would increase, I will not support moving forward. In addition, whether the information obtained during this study is favorable for consolidation or unfavorable it will be made available for public review prior to any decision. ~Charles H. Collins, Candidate for Mayor - Village of Nassau

Our February Town Board meeting began by honoring the service of Jim Moore, the Town Director of Planning. Jim had served our community in this capacity since 2004; his expertise and knowledge will be sorely missed. We are seeking qualified candidates to fill this position. Resumes can be sent to the Town Hall. Town water rates have not been increased in 3 years while the costs of operation and maintenance have steadily increased. Due to increases in the purchase price of water from the City of Troy, the Town has increased water rates. However, rates for minimum consumption will remain the same. This resolution passed the town board with a unanimous 5-0 vote. In response to recent water-quality concerns, we authorized a survey for the potential merger of the Hampton Manor Water District with the General Water District. This survey will be mailed to Hampton Manor residents with their July bills. Phil and Sue attended the Associations of Towns meeting in NYC this past week. They appreciated the opportunity to attend the many seminars focusing on the issues facing all Towns in the State. Two of the topics that we will be addressing in the short-term are Multiyear Financial Planning and Storm Water Management. The Citizens Financial Advisory Board for the Town has already expressed an interest in helping to produce multi-year budgets. Building Inspector, Joe Cherubino, also in attendance at these meetings, is focusing on bringing the Town into compliance with the State mandates to keep our water and sewers free of dangerous chemicals. Appliance Amnesty Week will take place the last week of March. Starting Monday, March 28th, through Friday, April 1st, appliances can be picked up with an appointment by calling the Town DPW at 477-6103. The next scheduled Town Board Meeting is Wednesday, March 16th, at 7pm.

CHANGED BY GOD Sunday, March 6, 2011, is Transfiguration Sunday. It is the day on which we commemorate the special revelation of Jesus’ divinity to the three disciples; it was God’s divine affirmation of everything Jesus had done and was about to do. Worship at the Nassau and Stuyvesant Reformed Churches will be centered around Jesus’ transfiguration, the transformation of his friends and how God changes us as we journey with him. In the sermon, based on Matthew 17:1-9, titled, “Changed by God,” the Reverend Edward L. Van Kampen will focus on how hearing Jesus’ message can lead us to become changed. The Nassau Reformed Church begins worship at 11 a.m. in its chapel on the second level of its Church-SchoolBuilding at 43 Church Street (Route 20,) one half mile east of the only traffic light in the village. Sunday School meets at 11 a.m. and ends so parents can meet their children at 12 Noon, following worship. The Stuyvesant Reformed Church will begin worship at 9 a. m. in its Sanctuary, where Church Street meets Route 9J, one half mile south of the only traffic (caution) light in the hamlet of Stuyvesant. Sunday School boys and girls join their families during worship through the children’s sermon; then they engage in self-study activities.

FORMER COMPTROLLER REACTS TO CHARGES Letter to the Editor: North Greenbush residents are witnessing Lou Desso’s efforts to repair damage done to their competence by attacking my reputation and open the door to hire one of their political cronies as Town Comptroller. Evidence a report from a consultant leaked to a newspaper by Mr. Desso, which inaccurately accused me of creating an “unauthorized bank account”. No one ever consulted or questioned me on the report’s findings. The failure of the Board and the firm they retained to obtain my input is inexcusable and evidence of a taxpayer funded political hit. Their claim of an “Unauthorized Bank Account” is untrue and outrageous. The Comptroller was never restricted by the Board in determining which bank or account or type to use. The account was fully authorized by the comptroller and opened in the name of the Town of North Greenbush, not Mike Strenka. Every penny is secure. Contrary to the innuendo, the board approved bank is right here on Main Avenue and not some off shore bank in the Cayman Islands! As a County Legislator, Mr. Desso approves depositories for the county. Does he know of every account the county’s fiscal officers use and does he approve each one? Of course not; the finding is both wrong and incorrect as a matter of law and practice. Finally, I must disclose that any reports not finalized by my office were slowed at the direct demand of Councilman Desso who was paranoid that critics would utilize them to demonstrate the failure of the majority to fully implement budgetary recommendations. Mr. Desso was obsessed by the deficit, which he continued to contribute to with unnecessary spending, while wanting to insist there was “no deficit”, as he stated many times at meetings. Desso’s interference with the Comptroller’s Office severely hampered our ability to execute our fiduciary responsibilities in a timely fashion. No Comptroller should be bullied or threatened by an elected Board member. ~Michael Strenka, Coxsackie Editors Note: The above article does not necessarily reflect the opinion or endorsement of the Editor or the Staff of THE ADVERTISER, and for all intents and purposes is impossible to verify the truth and veracity of its contents.

Eileen plans on continuing her riding career in college. Next year she will be attending either UVM or Becker College. Both colleges have riding teams which Lantry will be trying out for. In college, Eileen will be studying Animal Science and hopes to find a career in the veterinary field.

Letter to the Editor: The majority of the town board of North Greenbush cannot take pride in the political hatchet job they attempted to execute last week on the former comptroller whom they fired without warning in January. Taking the heat for the manner in which they acted was apparently not easy. They hired a CPA to make some recommendations on the operations of the comptroller’s office. They made a glaring error by falsely stating the comptroller had opened an “unauthorized bank account” because the town board had never approved it. Mr. Desso for political gain, leaked the false report to the newspapers before it had been delivered to his own Finance Committee. Just a day later, the comptroller fired back providing proof that the account was authorized, opened in the name of the town and in a bank on Main Avenue designated by Desso and the town board. What Desso and his high priced CPA should have known is that Town Boards do not approve the bank accounts, just the banks. Mr. Desso has been on the Board for 3 years and he didn’t realize he has never voted to approve a single bank account? The auditor report harmed the former comptroller’s reputation and may very well open the door to a lawsuit against Desso and the firm. Desso has repeatedly called for a “forensic audit” implying criminal conduct to further enhance the conclusion of the false claim in this taxpayer funded report. Equally reprehensible was the Board majority’s refusal to fix the mistake by failing to support the Supervisor’s resolution to ask the firm to look at the law and proof of their error and decide if they should amend their conclusion. After acknowledging the error, no one would vote for the Supervisor’s resolution. They apparently prefer to leave the report as written with its shamefully inaccurate accusation. This is another example of the conduct of our Town Board which can’t do the right thing even when they are forced to acknowledge that a conclusion is wrong. Firing him was just not enough. They needed to try and take his reputation. ~Robert Price, Wynantskill
