Dear Howard, Diane, and John,

You are the most despicable people I have ever seen in my entire life. To spite the rest of the town out of a an extremely beneficial resource because you're mad a member of their organization is suing the town is absolutely disgraceful. Gerald Geist is a member of the Association of Towns, the Association of Towns is not suing us. Besides the fact Howard and Diane has lied countless times during their time on the board, there must be some other ways to legally look into the way Howard is drafting letters before a meeting or vote even takes place! Although it's evident the three stooges will always vote the immoral or selfish way, obviously this is a huge mistake on Howard's part. Come on North Castle, time to start waking up and calling these three out on their misdoings.

I would also like to commend Mike Schiliro for standing up for what's right against the majority of the Town Board. Keep doing what you're doing, you have the town's support behind you.

This seems petty and vindictive. We are better than this.

Would Howard and Diane please explain to the hardworking taxpayers of North Castle why they had no problem taking campaign contributions from Mike Ferrari?

Didn't he file a lawsuit against the town to stop the grocery store in Armonk Square? Didn't Mike also threaten to file a lawsuit against the town if they approved a new A&P grocery store a few years ago?

How many millions has that guy cost the town in lawsuits ad lost economic development opportunity. Not to mention the millions he made by rezoning and flipping land in town. All of this hurts the hardworking taxpayers of North Castle. No wonder our taxes are through the roof!

It would be funny how hypocritical these two are if their decisions weren't so harmful to the community!

I understand the annual dues are only $750.

The above comments sum it up pretty well. Another disgraceful episode under the Arden-Roth-Cronin reign of retribution and spite. The unfortunate part of this is that both the Republican and Democrat parties are so impotent that this has a good chance of continuing many more years. I hope the political parties and their leaders wake up soon! Elections truly have consequences.

Unbelievable to bad mouth a former councilman who served for so many years. Arden, Roth and Cronin have no class. Let us get rid of them in November!

Once again Arden has proven himself a bully!! He \"vowed\" to lead our town in a \"fair and consistent manner based upon principles\" - so does that include drawing up a letter stating the results of a town board vote THAT HASN'T OCCURRED? Mr Arden, perhaps it is time to stop having closed door board meetings with Roth (or is it Didinato-Roth?) and Cronin and hear what our other two elected officials have to say!

The only solution is to inform all of your friends about what is happening and get them to the polls for the upcoming primary and general elections. Both are later this year. If one of the three gets tossed and replaced by someone with ethics and common sense, regardless of party affiliation, the Board's majority will shift back to sanity. Elections matter!
