If something is good, Vas takes the credit

To the Editor:

I read with interest the story by H. Rose Schneider where Vasilios Lefkaditis said the audit from the New York State Comptroller’s office about missing financial records with the town of Knox was “random.”

Mark Johnson, spokesman for the comptroller’s office, is quoted in the story that the audit was in part due to the missing records, so it was not a “random” audit.

This is a way of taking the responsibility for the audit away from the town (and hence Vas Lefkaditis) and putting it on the comptroller’s office.

If something is good, Vas takes the credit, but if it’s not so good it must be someone else.

This is typical, and I’ll be showing some other examples of this in the near future.

Editor’s note: Vince Virano had problems with the town of Knox earlier when the town’s setback requirements weren’t followed by a neighboring property owner on Singer Road in Knox.
