comptroller article in the Register Star


The thing is, it's way more than $40,000, as that is only for 18 months including the time after the story ran on the front page of the Albany Times Union.

The comments from this article are perhaps the most interesting part of the story:

    $40,000 is openly stolen and Grattan is not arresting people?
    This must be what Eugene Keeler is talking about when he talks about corruption.
    If some single mother gets a part time job and fails to declare it to DSS they come down hard on her. If you work for the county and are well connected you can take as much as you can stuff in your pockets.

    The County recently hired a new comptroller and gave him a ridiculous amount of money and a very expensive new computer software program so we wouldn't have these kinds of issues any more: even though he is not a CPA and therefore not qualified to be the comptroller. Pat Grattan, the current Chairman of the Board, makes excuses after excuses to cover up for his own incompetence and the county comptroller's. After the fiasco with the County Attorney's office and overcharging for hours they really didn't work, the Chairman still hasn't got a handle on payroll? Really? What is he doing all day? Oh yeah, he works in Greene County.

    That's what you get when you have a county run by a committee of part time politicians. Time for a county exec/manager.

    Now there's a surprise! Our own Comptroller's office was cited for paying their employees for not coming to work. Is this the same guy that accused people of attending conferences and getting paid to go "on vacation & gambling" & not working? I think the public would agree that his staff taking time off they didn't have & getting paid is worse.
