SOUTH BAY NEIGHBOR/NEIGHBOR NEWSPAPERS PET COLUMN EXCERPT
BY SHARON HUBBARD

Dear Readers,

I'm sure you remember I reported that Nike the PET Of The Week was recently slaughtered at the Hempstead Shelter.This story is more heartbreaking than I could have ever imagined.

Over ten dogs have been slaughtered at the Hempstead Shelter since new acting director C.. Iacopela was hired. after a "nationwide" search, I guess this is Kate Murray's idea of "shelter reform."

Do you remember when Kate would speak on the radio and at public gatherings saying Hempstead Shelter did not kill? I do. I also knew then that it was not the truth.

They say that one of the marks of a good leader is the ability to hire the right person for the job. Well, looks like Kate and her gang have failed again.
What new lifesaving reform has been put into effect by the new acting director?

None!

Sources tell me that when Ms. Iacopella was asked if she would be speaking with the highly successful director of the NO Killl Brookhaven Shelter Dori Scofield she replied "What for? So she can tell me how to run MY Shelter"

Well Ms Iacopella since you are responsible for every death at "your shelter" just as if You had stuck the needle in the dog's leg that means you have failed MISERABLY at your job and you would be wise to take the advice of someone who is a great success at running an animal shelter.

Also, IT IS NOT YOUR SHELTER!!!

It belongs to the taxpayers who pay your salary and who voted your boss Kate into office.

Ms. Iacopella, I would be happy to give you space in this column so you may respond to anything I have said here.

Readers I requested an interview previously but received no answer.

The following is from the Hope For Hempstead Shelter website:
Many have turned to Hope for Hempstead Shelter with concerns about public corruption, abuse of power and misuse of taxpayer dollars by Town of Hempstead Officials and the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter.

As citizens, we've been advised to contact the NYS Attorney General’s Public Integrity Office for Nassau County to make known our concerns and experiences.

NYS Attorney General Schneiderman says, “......Public Corruption at ANY level is a betrayal of the Public trust and WILL NOT be tolerated”

In response to a citizen’s complaint about public corruption, the Public Integrity Bureau offered the following description of its function.

“The Public Integrity Bureau seeks to vindicate the public’s interest in honest government. When government actors or private individuals acting in concert with them, engage in corrupt, fraudulent or other illegal behavior in the course of their public duties, the Public Integrity Bureau may investigate or take enforcement action.”

Example Issues Related to TOHAS:

1. Civil Abuse of Power

a. Being told you can’t take pictures or video in the Shelter (a public place)

b. Town Board walking out when public is speaking (refusing to acknowledge the Public’s right to speak)

2. Misuse of Tax Dollars

a. TOHAS is budgeted more than 4x the amount for shelters of comparable size and who offer more services to save animals and enrich the Community (e.g. Brookhaven Animal Shelter).

3. Political Corruption

a. Voter Registration Fraud – click here to read more about this topic. http://www.newsday.com/long-island/nassau/animal-shelter-official-removed-from-post-1.2759632

To further assist you, please visit www.hopeforhempsteadshelter.com to find the Attorney General Office’s Complaint Form.

Hope for Hempstead Shelter continues its efforts to make Town Officials accountable for the use of SEVEN MILLION ($7M) taxpayer dollars and to obtain transparency of Shelter operations. Our belief is that full fiscal and operational audits by non Town of Hempstead agents/agencies are necessary to reach these goals.

If you have any questions, please contact us at info@hopeforhempsteadshelt

er.com or 516-620-7893.

To contact the Attorney General’s Public Integrity Office directly call 516-248-3302 or 516-248-3300.

Thank you.

Additional Information

Misuse of Tax Dollars:

· More than $3 Million of the TOHAS budget is used for salaries.

· Approximately another $3 Million of the TOHAS budget is allocated to pay for services performed by OTHER TOH departments.

· Animal Behaviorist – Contracted by the Town to work four hours a week and reimbursed about $2,000/month!

· Veterinary Care – Two, part-time vets contracted by the Town provide 40 hour/week coverage. The Town estimates the annual cost of these contracts will be $250,000. The average annual salary of a full-time veterinarian on Long Island ranges from $80,000 - $90,000. So, for 20 hours a week, EACH of these TOHAS vets stands to make $125,000 this year!

Public Corruption:

· Audits of overtime and outside contracts needed

· Tails of Hope Fund – what is the money being used for?

· Hiring Operations – patronage vs. qualified personnel

April 16, 2013 @10:59 pm Throughout the awesome pattern of things you get a B- just for hard work. Exactly where you actually misplaced us was in the details. You know, as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details? And that couldn?t be more true at this point. Having said that, allow me reveal to you just what did work. The authoring is incredibly persuasive and that is possibly the reason why I am taking the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can easily notice the jumps in reason you make, I am not necessarily confident of how you seem to unite the points which produce your final result. For the moment I shall subscribe to your issue however hope in the future you actually link the dots much better. Lyon escorte
