MOUNT VERNON, NY — July 13, 2019 — Richard Thomas’ lawyers were in court arguing that the Mount Vernon City Council did not have the authority to dismiss former Mayor Rich Thomas from office. The court informed the lawyers that should they wish to contest the conduct of the Mount Vernon City Council they would need to take up the issue before the court with purview over the matter, that is, the Mount Vernon City Court.

Further, it has been learned that Joseph Spiezio III is still listed on the Mount Vernon server in the capacity of Deputy Commissioner. Spiezio is said to be “barking” orders to Mount Vernon Police personnel and they are acquiescing to his directives. New York State Troopers are being requested to take temporary control of the Mount Vernon Police Department to maintain a legal chain of command abiding by the Mount Vernon City Charter.

Then there is the issue of the Mount Vernon Industrial Development Agency (IDA). It seems when Rich Thomas entered office 3 ½ years ago after being elected to Mayor of Mount Vernon and also Chairman of the Mount Vernon IDA the coffers were infused with some $4 million. The most recent tabulation is, and I hope the reader is sitting down, a paltry $100,000. So where is the money? How was it spent?

  1. It is obvious that if Mayor Davis served the remainder of his term then Mayor Thomas will serve until Sept 30th. This Is A Rich Hunt.

  2. Time for a NYS Control Board to take over Mt. Vernon ASAP. Taxpayers need to know where their tax money is going. It’s certainly not going into the rebuilding of Memorial Field. Even the money Westchester County gave Mt. Vernon for Memorial Field is missing.
